Scalp Blisters in Dermatitis Herpetiformis Posted April 11, 2015 · Report to Admin Hi Ravenwood. On april 23 it will be 3 months gluten-free. Today I was horribly blistered on my back again. I know its not gluten because I am so tired of it, I'm pretty much doing paleo diet right now. In other words NOTHING. no soy, no grains at all, no dairy...nothing....im existing barely on plain unflavored protein and fruit and veggies, and they still come. What a horrendous disease this is truly. just horrendous. Wishing for some relief....I almost don't believe any will come. But I keep going. What else can i do? I'm 5'8. When i went gluten-free i was 152 pounds, today i am 133 pounds. And nothing works. I've considered not eating at all but I guess that would be anorexic. I look it anyway pretty much, ha. Its all i can do to get to work every day...i barely can do it. I never want to do it I am in so much pain and embarrassment. But what can I do? I need the job. Hopefully someday...one can dream right?
