  1. I am sorry to hear that. I hope things start going better for you. I do have eczema and DH. I have been on a strict gluten free diet for only six weeks, but I do find that the more stress that I deal with the more I break out. In my research of DH/celiac disease even with the medication and a strict gluten free diet, you could still get out breaks for a couple years. Hope this helps!!

  3. I was diagnosed with DH about six weeks ago. I had been dealing with the blisters for over 8 months, before I finally decided to go to a dermatologist to have it checked out. I got to the point that I knew exactly when they would start blistering up. I actually agree that they do look like pimples when I first start feeling a bump under my skin, but usually they would blister up usually twice the size within 24 hours and be filled with a clear liquid. I started out with them only on my elbows, knees and buttocks for around the first six months, then I started getting them on my nose and my ears. My dermatologist put me on Dapsone as well as a gluten free diet, the Dapsone cleared up everything with in two weeks. Unfortunatly, in the research that I have done on this. Even on Dapsone and a gluten free diet, I can still get this blisters for up to two years. I hope this helps!
  4. I was just recently diagnosed with Dermititis Herpetiformis. I didn't have a much of a rash, but they were more like blisters. They would start out as bumps and within 24 hours would be double in size and full of a clear liquid. I hope this doesn't sound to gross, but usually I would pop them, and if I didn't pop them they would just keep filling up until they popped on their own. They were always on my elbows, knees, buttocks, and occasionally on my nose and ears. I had them for over 8 months, and it always seemed that the second they would seem to be clearing up, a few days later they would come back full force, each time worse then the time before. I had tried everything to see what was causing them (ex. changing lotions, body wash etc.) but nothing seemed to work. I am not one that likes to go to doctors (my motto: what I don't know, won't hurt), well I had a friend that finally talked me into going to the dermatologist, the dermatologist that day did a biopsy to test for Dermititis Herpetiformis and I definetely had it. Back to my motto, now I know and now I have to go gluten free and it hurts!! I am trying to stay positive, but now he is sending me to a gastroenterologist to test me for Celiac, because more than likely I will have that as well.
