  1. Thanks for the reply! The Dr didn't say much, other than that "Dh only appears on the backs of the elbows", and since I did go to a derm he said they were the experts and he couldn't diagnose it - especially since I hadn't been eating gluten as much up 'till the appt. However, he wants to do an...
  2.

However, I outgrew the childhood asthma and it had lessened so much so that I only...
  7. Hi there! I'm new to this forum but it's like a jackpot of great information and advice, so I decided to drop by and introduce myself (and hopefully elicit a bit of advice to my situation as well). Also warning, I'm sorry if the description of my skin rashes may be graphic to you, so I'd just...
