How Long Does It Take For Skin To Clear Up?

26 posts in this topic

I have had DH since I was diagnosed (1997).

It is nowhere near as bad as the first 2 years, however, it still comes up -- especially if I do not take Dapsone every other day or so....

Problem is, I eat out 2-5 times a week, so it is going to happen no matter how careful I am...

For occasions at friends houses, I always have aluminum foil in the car (for BBQ purposes) and I always bring chips that I can have/like.

The DH will eventually clear up (especially with the assistance of Dapsone), but it takes time -- his body will take a while to clear up the "histamine" reaction it has had for the past several years -- Rome wasn't built in a day.

I also used Fluoconide (a steroid cream when I was first diagnosed) -- it helped the bad areas (joints, eyes, beltline, etc)

Things will improve as long as he is is eating well (no gluten, lots of veggies, lots of fruit)....

Oh, and sometimes execise and sunlight make the DH worse -- I don't know why..
