Pic Of Fingers, Could U Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi there ! So I get these bumps on my fingers and no one can figure out what they are. They are red, hard and hurt. They also itch sometimes. I'm in the middle of possibly finding out if I'm gluten intolerant ( You can read my other post about the mouth sores also here -> Click here

Could someone maybe identify these? Do they look familiar?

I haven't had DH on my hands, but many do. That said, everyone's rash looks different.

Once your testing is done, if you go on a gluten-free diet and it improves you'll know its related to gluten. If it drastically proves or disappears on a gluten-free AND low iodine diet (google thyca for details on low iodine foods) then you can be very sure it's DH. You can also request a DH biopsy from a dermatologist.

I get it on my hands it looks very similar to that -- i'm self diagnosised though... so take it for what it is worth. I know since being gluten free minus some accidental gluten I've been hive free! good luck!

i get a rash on my fingers that looks a lot like yours--- even pretty much in the same place! Except I also get it on the inside of my thumb. Mine isn't as bad as yours though, and doesn't usually hurt, and has only been itchy like one time. It does seem to ebb and flow, so to speak, but I've had it for years.

I have been gluten-free since Aug 2010, but only recently, thanks to reading this wonderful forum, started to think this rash may be affected by iodine, and therefore just might be DH, or the begginings of it.

i also used to get a rash on my arms (also not painful or itchy) every spring/ summer-- usually in April or May, when our skin is getting more sun exposure all of a sudden , and isn't used to it. Guess what? this year- my first spring/ summer gluten-free-- I didn't get it-- until late June when I majoly accidentally glutened myself!

I also used to have brain fog, menstrual issues, and some other fun things!

Before I developed full blown DH I had a number of minor rashes, lumps, blisters, scaley patches. These disappeared when the gluten in my diet disappeared. None of these looked like your photo, but given the range of symptoms people have, I wouldn't rule it out.

These days it is easy to eat gluten free so it's worth a try to see what happens.

Looks like eczema, especially if they are itchy, hard and red. My mother has had it her whole life and it flares up with certain foods she eats, so far it's been soda and or gluten. Some anti-itch cream may help, and iching may break the skin which could cause ifection. That would be more irritating. Maybe see what your eating or drinking? Or if your allergic to certain things you touch?
