Rash Just On Face? Could This Be Dh?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

I was diagnosed with celiac disease and have been gluten free since end of Feb 2004. Gastro symptoms under control, thank goodness.

Now a new problem: I have a rash on my face. I thought it started when I was mowing the lawn and brushed my cheek against a bush.... got a rash there. But since then I have had a bumb or two per day break out: large bumbs like mosquito bites that really itch. They take a few days to shrink and not itch, but still are visible of long after. I have never had a problem with acne and have lupus and it's not the charactaristic lupus-rash either!

I guess my question is: could this be DH? I thought DH was all over and small-ish bumps.

I have an appmt with a dermatologist in a few weeks...

Thanks,

Pam

Pam, My DH looked like little blisters that would raise up and them break and form a crusty scab. If the scab was over a joint it would break open and weep constantly. It was extremely itchy and sometimes painful. It took me 2 and 1/2 years to clear most of it up after becoming gluten free. Shirley
