  1. Desperate - When Does It Get Better?

    I just read that coconut milk is high in salicylates - have you had any experience with coconut products? I drink coconut milk and water pretty regularly. Thanks for the link.
  2. I am self-diagnosed DH, been gluten free 6 months. I felt like I was getting better, but have been experiencing a terrible outbreak for the past month. Pretty sure I haven't eaten gluten, and have gone dairy free, avoiding iodine. Would love to hear other people's experiences about how long this took. Almost positive this is DH - can't imagine what else it could be. This is ruining my life.
  3. After a year of going to see doctors, I diagnosed myself with DH. I have been gluten free (and carefully avoiding iodine) for 5 months. My skin was getting progressively better, but for the last two weeks, has gotten worse by the day. I am now covered in hives and blisters that aren't going away. Has anyone else had this experience? I'm pretty sure I have not ingested any gluten. Is this part of the process of my body getting rid of deposits deep in my skin? I'd love to hear from anyone who had a 'relapse' of DH when they were following all the rules, and seemed to be getting better.
