Hi friends. Just wanted to introduce myself as a newly diagnosed coeliac. I have been reading the forums for weeks while I was treated for scabies (sure that it wasn't scabies), and am so thankful for all the help I received just from you all being open. It gave me the knowledge and confidence to keep pressing on despite the initial scabies diagnosis ('no, it's definitely not DH"), and negative blood test results. Thank you. So much more helpful than medical sites! I am an Aussie living in India and was diagnosed by skin biopsy with DH yesterday. Looking forward to actually contributing from now on!

Hello Friends,

This is just my second post but I saw this topic and had to post this because I too was diagnosed with scabies but only tried that treatment once. I was adamit with my doctor that it had to be something else because i have a family and none of them had any symptoms. I hope my journey to diagnosis can help a little!

I have been diagnosed for just over 3 months. I was diagnosed via blood work, biopsy, then another biopsy, immunofluorescence biopsy and upper GI. LOL it has been quite a journey. I had DH so bad that I was initially diagnosed with scabies (Treatment bombed), then Chicken pox , after 2 weeks of more pox breakouts my Doctor decided to do further testing
