Hi there
I posted a pic in general health of my rash. Someone suggested it could be dermatitis herpetiformis

I have it pretty much constantly either on both lower legs, or my upper arms. Always both sides, and I have had it for years.

I have T1 diabetes, thyroid disease and addisons.

My farts and bloating are literally of epic proportions Blush and always have been. I've always assumed it's how I react to eating carbs. Now I'm not so sure.

Anyway, here is the rash as it currently is

Hi

I had a rash that looked just like this before I was diagnosed with coeliac disease. Since going gluten free it hasn't come back.

I have coeliac disease and DH and it doesn't look like mine - it is pin point blisters which are intensely terribly itchy
