I used to have my dh flare even with certified gluten-free foods. After a couple years it changed to just the itch. Then it went away. So I guess I went from extremely sensitive to less sensitive throughout the years.
Hi! I have DH. I was diagnosed in 2010 and have been gluten free since then. I still have chronic itching and sometimes the lesions. I might have reactions to airborne, but my outbreaks tend to be when I'm stressed, which is most of the time. Or when I'm sick or my immune system is weakened. It's not as bad as when I was diagnosed. I use cream clotrimaozle betamethasone. Also I take Zyrtec twice a day and benedryl at night. The dermatologist gave me hydroxyzine and Xanax as needed. I use Grandma's baking soda soap. I have had endoscopy and stomach biopsys. I'm better, but it will be with me and you from now on. We just have to make the best choices and eat healthy.
