Okay so my dh is really bad on my chest. Finally my face and elbow have cleared up :)

But I was wondering if this is normal. When my dh flares up they get white pus and clear fluid. When they dry which takes forever btw! They leave a really dark circle but Incan squeeze them and it's almost like a clear blackhead comes out? I know this is disgusting but I just gotta know :unsure:

Doesn't sound anything like my son's either.

Okay so maybe it could be acne amongst my dh. The only thing is they appear when I get glutened along with the my face and elbows and itch like crazy :(

My son's DH does not have any white discharge, only clear fluid (like a blister), then scabs, then purplish scar after. However, I am gluten sensitive, and once I figured it out and went gluten-free, my acne cleared up entirely! Amazing. So, maybe you are right, maybe gluten is causing not only the DH rash, but also acne breakouts.

Hi RashyA,

I broke out in head to toe Dh after nine months working in a bakery.

1 year gluten free and my DH is now what is probably considered 'widespread but healing' and "normal presentation". 12 months ago it was literally head to toe. The only place it hasn't been is the soles of my feet (touch wood). And I've seen it on me in every way that posters have described on this forum. There is no normal. This is where medical "symptoms" cause DH sufferers such a problem. There is no normal.

I am 39 and was always itchy scratchy. Ingrown hairs on the legs, itchy face, rosacea, adult acne (mild and infrequent but always in exactly the same spots), back of arm bumps, itchy back etc etc.

I always avoid glutens (in hindsight). Avoided breakfast, didn't like pasta/pizza, avoided sandwiches/pie/cake/biscuits etc etc etc.

At the worst, a year ago, my DH (in hindsight - it was so bad I barely slept for months so memory hazy) was just a skin maze of lesions. Everywhere just itched like crazy. Even seemingly lesion clear areas itched/burned.

Since then, over the past months, it has evolved to resembled all those manifestations described here on this forum and that I've seen on the derm/medical sites I've spent hundreds of hours scanning. Small tiny bumps that are like a mini white or black head. Small pimple like bumps. Small black head like bumps. Medium like bumps that can be white/black head like or fluid (clear to amber colour) filled. Medium size ones the same as the previous. The larger ones that can be similar to the others mentioned but just a bit bigger. Ones of various size that (especially in my more recent healing) that just seem to appear, sort of dry out and once itched over go away.

No normal.

My hands/feet tend to be a bit different to the rest. They tend to be more clustered. Lots of linear or circular (several very nearby that appear in a linear or something like circular pattern). These have been most problematic is some ways. The linear in particular seem to appear along my "life lines" ie those lines (like those you see on fingerprint) and then tend to crack and split. I spent a fortune on bandaids until a few months ago. Intensely itchy but in a different way to the others. Deep and burning.

There is a 'white bit' in all of these lesions that once "out" (itched/gone) relieves most if not all of the itch. Tends to be hard, sometime seems to be dry/hard skin but actually isn't.

Infection/Pus I haven't had too many problems with despite the extent of the DH. I've had a little bit (maybe tiny bit is a better description - twice in mild form in 12 months) but I have had nothing even vaguely like infection despite the extent of my raw wounds. I think*think the immune system is so overloaded how could it possibly be too worried about a bit of dirt?! :) Not sure why but there are some things you should be aware of. I made sure (and still do) to clean my fingernails regularly ((ie at least 3-4 times a day)) - this is really important. Regular showers etc as you'd expect. Food handling and then itching is a BIG no-no. As is itching then food handling of course :)

Hope this is "disgusting" enough to match what you thought your own to be :)

:blink: At this point...when the disscusion involves Celiacs....ANYTHING is possible! :lol:

Persoally...I don't have those symtoms, but the teen across the street has "wheat allergies" as well as dairy...and SHE has SEVERE acne! If she eats gluten...her acne gets REALLY bad! My son has a dairy intolerance...and if HE ingests dairy....besides stomache and intestinal problems...breaks out severely on his face and back..(he's 22).

I've heard of others having a symilar reaction....Its quite possible to have a acne-like reaction to eating gluten...especially if your body can't handle it! :o:)

    • Mine didn't count past 100 - so I was over 100.  When the numbers are that high, it means you have Celiac.  Slightly elevated numbers can sometimes be caused by other things.  Welcome to the club!
    • I recently took a blood test and went over the results with my GI doctor who will be performing and endoscopy and colonoscopy on me soon. I can't remember exactly what she said, but I believe she was talking about my IGA-TTG levels. She said the normal range was under 10 but mine was 639. I think she was talking about IGA-TTG but I'm not sure. For people who have done this test what were your high levels?  Thanks! Female, 16
    • I can not help you with the Candida  issues (except to advise reducing sugar from your diet and talk to your doctor about antifungals).  I can tell you that my folate and B vitamin levels were off the chart.  No, I did not have cancer, which is what you will find if you google).  Yes, I have autoimmune  issues and maybe I have the MRTHR gene (never tested....why bother?).  Instead, I gave up all supplements even those found in processed foods.   My lab reports are all normal after a year.    I am not deficient in anything at this time.   Vitamins and supplements are a good thing, but they are not for everyone.  There is no “one-size-fits all”.   Consider changing your diet to include just whole, unprocessed foods like the ones your Great-Grandparents ate.  Eat a varied diet full of vegetables, fruit, nusts, seeds, meats, fish and grains.  See if things improve.  Work in the Candida diet into this Whole Foods diet, but find out why you think you have a Candida issue.  This should be diagnosed by a medical doctor.  Systemic Candida is rare and is usually found in people with immune-related illnesses.   If you suspect celiac disease, get tested.  It is a simple blood test.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/        
    • It could be celiac disease related or not.  The fact is her antibodies are still elevated.  They have come down dramatically (great job!) and she has had some  intestinal healing, but she is not completely healed.  She probably needs more time.  She is under a lot of stress which is known to affect menstrual cycles even excluding celiac disease.   She has been malnourished (think concentration camps...extreme, but you get it)  and still is based on her eating habits you described.    She  is a student who is away from home and has to deal with celiac disease every single moment on her own.    Every bite of food must be checked.  That can be exhausting!  It will get better, but it takes time.  It can take a long time to heal.   The fact that it occurred when she stopped gluten is probably a coincidence.  It probably added even more stress.  Can you imagine a life-long dietary change?  Ever dieted?  How long did the diet last?   Give it more time for her antibodies to come down.  She is still being attacked. They are not in the normal range.    Most take a year or longer to heal.  Ask anyone here.  Read through forum comments.   How about baking her some chocolate chip gluten-free cookies and shipping them to her?  Or mail a fruit basket.  You both will feel a bit better.   Hugs!!!!
    • Done and wish you luck. I moved to a full on keto/paleo diet after also. This might be why it does not come back, once you get rid of it probiotics help keep it in check as they eat the yeast.
