How To Keep "un-Scratched" "lesions" "unscratched" For Testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I hope that I'll be tested for DH in a couple of weeks and wonder how I can keep the new problem area undisturbed. Has anyone had any luck with covering the itch, anti-histamines etc that helped ? Any practical ideas about what might have helped a positive diagnosis of DH?

Curiously, all the posts I made yesterday have disappeared, which rather reduces the incentive to spend time replying. But here goes again.

My understanding is that biopsies are done BESIDE the lesion, not on it. It shouldn't matter if the lesion is scratched or not.

I personally haven't found anything that significantly makes the stinging better, except moisturisation with a cream or ointment.
