Diabetes And Dh Rash

Recommended Posts

I have Diabetes Type II and DH. I wonder if my rash isn't healing quickly could be attributed to Diabetes? Would Diabetes cause the rash to last longer even though I am taking Dapsone and am eating gluten-free?

The rash is so improved with the dosage of Dapsone that I am taking but curious about other people and their reactions with DH and Diabetes. If you have any information to reference, please advise.

My understanding from what I have read on the board is that DH takes the longest time to resolve. The autoimmune antibodies seem to hang around in the skin longer than in the bloodstream or the gut and the symptoms, unfortunately resolve very slowly. For some the DH is very sensitive to iodine, for others not so much. For some the Dapsone works quite quickly; for others is mediates the symptoms somewhat so they are not quite so acute, but does not chase them away.

It seems like much patience is needed with DH :(:rolleyes:
