Is The Rash Suppose To Look Worst Before It Gets Better?

Recommended Posts

I'm on Day 2 on my gluten and iodine free diet. Still itching a bit. But is the rash suppose to look much worse before it gets better?

I wouldn't say it's supposed to get worse, but it may not improve for a while. It has been known to hang around for a lot longer than one would wish. :(

It's my impression that there is some 'momentum' involved. After I went gluten free some lesions continued to appear even as the original lesions were healing.

My experience, (not avoiding iodine) is that it has been two years. Disclaimer: I work part of the year as a wheat farmer doing my best to avoid dust exposure. I haven't noticed any direct effect from the dust, but it may be slowing down my general recovery.

As an autoimmune disease, DH probably expresses quite differently in different people.

A corelation I have noticed is that I regress if I am tired and stressed, and improve when I'm rested.
