  1. I've heard about DH scars that are purple, but the scars I have where my lesions are healing are more dark pink not purple. The lesions get scaly and then heal. Anyone else like that?
  2. My husband has raised cattle all of his life. He's 67. Yes, we provide mineral blocks for them.
  3. Thank you. That helps a lot. We raise our own beef and chicken. The laying hens are free range and get a small amount of chicken feed. The cows are grass fed, so those are pretty safe.
  4. I'm a little confused. Were you saying 2 weeks from the time the breakout started for getting a biopsy? Also, I'm still not sure about much iodine a person has to have for health. I haven't used iodized salt at home for years. I use Redmond Real Salt, which I'm sure has a trace amount of naturally...
  5. And those darn bugs have bitten me in at least 500 different places. Right? My rash keeps growing. It started with one small place on my back and now covers my torso - boobs and all. It is slowly breaking out on the inside of my elbows and forearms. It's on my butt and top of the back of my thighs...
  6. It's true that some have more symptoms and different symptoms than others. But Celiac is Celiac, whether it's manifesting as GI symptoms or DH. The same risk for intestinal damage applies to all. Also, symptoms tend to change or vary within an individual. I used to get bad GI symptoms. Now I...
  7. But if you have DH, that means you are Celiac. And complications can come from that if you are still getting cross contaminated. You could still be doing damage to your small intestines. Right?
  8. Squirmingitch, I noticed you mentioned something about the full blood panel test for celiac on another post. My son is going to a GI this week to see about getting tested. Could you post that info here or direct me to where we can find what the full panel consists of, please? Thank you.
  9. I do have another question, though. Is it unusual for it to keep breaking out and spreading over my body? It's on my stomach and breasts, a few new places on my back and buttocks, one on the back of my neck and one on the back of my scalp. Now I think it's starting on my leg. I already had a...
  10. Thank you so much for all of that info. That really helps me even if I don't have all the answers I'd like to have since they don't seem to exist at this point in time. I, too, am a research freak and have been trying to glean as much knowledge as I can anywhere I can.
  11. I guess what I still don't get is that I've been eating gluten free for the past almost 3 years, except for the occasional accidental exposure. I've never had this type of reaction before. Actually, I was thinking about doing the gluten challenge a while back but decided after a couple of days...
  12. I had no idea you had to be on gluten that long for a dh test. I figured if you were breaking out they could test. The doctor knows I've been eating gluten free, but didn't say anything about having to eat gluten for the biopsy. I have been "loosely " diagnosed with Celiac by my GP due to multiple...
  13. Thank you. I just came from the dermatologist. This whole DH thing is all new to me. I've had little bumps break out on occasion that I didn't associate with celiac, but I've never had a breakout like this before. I don't have insurance and can't afford the biopsy until I get some, but he said it...
  14. How long do the bumps keep breaking out after getting glutened? Getting the rash is a new development for me.
