Dyshidrosis Connections?

Grrrr. After having to figure out my son's skin and all that mental stress, my dear daughter (nearly 6) has popped up with her own variety of skin blisters. A few on her fingers, two on her face. One on the back of her leg near her foot, all within the last 3 days or so. I'm thinking maybe dyshidrosis (relying on google here...) Does anybody have any experience with this? Not looking like DH I don't think because each blister is beautifully isolated. No redness around it. But wondering if it could be related.Would appreciate any advice :-/

I would get similar "blisters" on my hand before diagnosed with celiac. Doc thought it was eczema's and gave me a cortisone creams which did help.once I changed my diet and cut gluten I rarely get them now. The more I reduce my antibodies' the less frequent it appears.

My blisters started out in the beginning to just be a tiny blister --- no redness around it..... until I broke it & began scratching.

And in the very beginning mine were isolated not groupings.

*sigh*. Thanks. Hate the whole guessing game. Dr's visits not so straight forward here. Feel so often I'm on my own.

Everything I saw about dyshidrosis said it's on hands & feet not face or legs. Now the leg is close enough to the foot so that might be plausible but the face is way off base.

Squirming did you look this up for me? Or are you just a dermatology whizz?? Either way you are so lovely. Thank you. Hmmm, I never thought about the face not being mentioned. I did think that it's often said DH is not on the face (although I know that to be untrue.) I just thought it was later in the DH lifespan that it appears on the face. Which now that I think about it, is silly. That's just what happened to me but I guess everyone is different.

No whizz here; I just Googled it & that's what I found. Yeah, there's lots of incorrect info. out there about dh so why not about dyshidrosis --- HOWEVER --- dyshi only says hands & feet whereas dh says lots of places sooooooo.....

Looks like it's about time you came home my friend. You & your kids need to be where you can assure yourselves of the foods & ingredients you are eating.

lol!! You sound like my mum, and of course you are right. Hubby and I have decided to slowly start transitioning out, but it is not easy. We run a business here so need to sort that out. We're home in June(to be able to skip the hot season here) and already have the specialist appointments lined up, then back after that for another 18 months

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
