Autoimmune Crisis? Dh? Help! in Coping with Celiac Disease Posted April 23, 2011 · Report to Admin For me the DH, when it wasn't covering my body, was concentrated for years just where yours is, on the inside of my joints not the outside. I notice in your avatar there is a horse. Are you being very careful when feeding and grooming him? Are you avoiding gluten in topicals? We also have to drop iodine from our diet until the lesions have healed and the antibodies have left the skin. I do own a horse, but I board him at a farm and I only get to see him once a month because of my school, but I am very careful there. And as for topicals, when the lesions showed up, I doublechecked everything I put on my body for gluten and so far...nothing. But I feel better knowing that you had DH on the inside of joints! Thank you.
