What To Put On Dh Lesions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Whenever I get a bad glutening and as the digestive issues are resolving, I get intense fatigue and weakness. When that is subsiding, I get lovely pretty DH lesions all over my chin in the same place every time. They itch like crazy and then get scabby and burn. (hurts like hell) What can I put on theses? I am afraid of scaring. Would Vaseline help or Neosporin?

I use to ALWAYS get dh on my knee caps. I never get that anymore it had moved to my chin. I'd rather have it on the knees..no one is looking at them! :angry:

Thanks

I use Vanicream lotion and Vaseline over that when they are really dry and flaky. I have to moisturize like crazy and pamper them.

I have both of those in my bathroom! I will give it a try. Thanks!

Oh, try ice packs at night or whenever it really itches. I think it reduces swelling, too!

Yep, at night it itches like crazy especially on my back. Drives me nuts. Thanks for all of the tips. I read about Vanicream in another of your posts from awhile back. I bought some a few months ago and I just love it! Thanks :)

AND she turned me on to the Cromolyn cream recipe which is made with Vanicream & Nasalcrom. It says to use glycerin also but I hunted & hunted & couldn't find any so I just used the Vanicream & Nasalcrom & it seems to help me more that way than straight Vanicream --- at least while the lesions are new, swollen, red & ITCHY! I keep it in the fridge & it cools as it goes on which makes a difference too.

Speaking of which..... I'm off to put on another layer. Sigh.....

I'm glad that helped! Sometimes it helps me, other times not so much.

I know Prickly. Sometimes it seems nothing helps much. But I still thank you for the tip about Vanicream as well as the Cromolyn recipe.

I had DH on my chin too.

I used Walgreens brand of Pain Relieving Ointment which is benzocaine and it numbs the stinging itching pain of DH. Only works for a little while but it is welcome relief. My chin scarred bad because I had DH for years without knowing what it was. Now lesions are clear but if I get any gluten...here goes the cycle again.

Bactine spray worked for me too. But both of these had to be reapplied over and over...but at least they helped some.

I think that's what's going on with me. I'm just beginning my journey with all of this celiac disease. I've had this horrible rash in the worst spot right between my buttocks and believe me when it flares and is very bothersome wow is it ever uncomfortable. The burning the itching and it litterally hurts. My doctor may have it biopsied after some other test are taken care of. I use cool compresses which can help, but really what I find that works the best at the moment is GB lotion that cools irritated, dry, skin it helps with the redness. I also have used curel lotion as well. That's all i do at the moment. Doctor prescribed hydrocortizone cream which does nothing for it. You have to use a lot of lotion though. But hey it's better than wondering through the house in agony when it's burning. Then when I can I just chill out and try not to move around to much on days that it's bad. I know that's not good but if I do a lot of running around that can cause friction hince highten the irritation. Believe me I wouldn't wish this spot on anyone. The rash never really goes away, but most times I can get the burning and itching under control, most times. It has bothered me enough at times it brings tears to my eyes. Not fun for anyone I know.

Why does this stuff want to get us in the MOST irritating places? I would still be a major pain in the rear but arms or legs would be a darn sight better than scalps, ears, butt cheeks, arm pits, face. I mean REALLY! :ph34r:

Mmmm hmmm...I had a brief bout of it in da crack of da hiney and I must say I was a very very very temperamental girl and I showed up at the dermatologist's office that morning in quite a state.

And now y'all know how I got my second shot of steroids and an rx for a psychiatric med (it was really because it was a class I, II antihistimine but he did mention it might relieve anxiety :)).

Thank You pricklypear1971 for your Vanicream Moisturizer suggestion !!! Works like a charm and rids me of the second most annoying DH itch, ie dry skin. I bought 16 oz. from CVS for $13.99 and it's well worth the price. Again, I can't thank you enough for sharing.

Peace and healing,

WF
