  1. He has not been diagnosed by biopsy, but we're quite certain that's what it is. The other food allergies are because he's gone years without knowing it was gluten causing his problems, and now reacts to many things. He had a food allergy panel which showed severe wheat and milk allergies and substantial...
  2. Oh, no, sorry -- my husband is just interested in whether it would help with the itching. He's not trying to replace an everything-free diet. It's just that he had it so bad by the time we figured out what it was, it was essentially a whole-body problem, and it's going to take a long time for it...
  3. I just made the most wonderful chocolate chip cookies! They're as easy as the Tollhouse recipe, and taste remarkably similar. The recipe calls for Bob's Red Mill gluten-free flour, but I used the King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten-free flour and they came out amazing. (At my altitude (...
  4. My husband slathers Aquaphor lotion all over the various rash patches, but, needless to say, that's rather messy. It's the only thing he's found that keeps it from drying out and dampens the itching somewhat.
  5. Anyone tried CBD oil on the DH rash? Any success?
  6. A bit of advice I've figured out this week, after some initial spectacular failures: if you're at high altitude (7000 ft here), gluten-free bread needs some adjustments. Everything rises faster at high altitude, so I was having dough overflow the top of the bread machine pan, covering the element...
  7. Thanks for all that! No luck from PCP anyway -- just a referral to GI to go along with the referral to dermatology, and we're not sure about going to either one if it's just going to require months more of gluten. He's already at the end of his rope with two years of itching all over, so it...
  8. Not a clue, other than normal eating. He ate a fair amount of bread, and pasta and pizza and such. Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered...
  9. Yeah, I think the only reason to bother with trying to get a diagnosis is if it's needed in order to get the Dapsone, which would be a lifesaver for him in stopping or helping the itching while he gets his diet more in order. He's had continuous rash and lesions and blisters over large to larger...
  10. I was just reading some of the biopsy threads, and I wonder -- he has lesions, all over, and has had for a couple of years to varying degrees, so even if the celiac blood test was negative due to his recent gluten-free diet, would they still be able to find it in the biopsy? Because there are lesions...
  11. Little late here, but my husband has chills all the time with his. He's been frying us all winter, cranking up the heat! It doesn't help that he can't wear a shirt because it irritates the rash.
  12. Hello, new here and new to the whole thing! My husband has been battling this rash and assorted digestive issues for years. He was diagnosed with contact dermatitis by the dermatologist, had some steroid injections and various creams over the last couple of years, and then in November he went...
