Has anyone seen or heard about anything like this!!Any suggestions are welcomed!!!!!


HI -

I have had a rash for about 8-9 months now. Fortunately I live in the UK, but diagnosis has still taken a while. My rash appears on my elbows, knees, bum and sides and I have had 3 skin Biopsies. The last biopsy was to see if I am celiac as the rash could be caused by eating gluten. The name is Dermatitis herpetiformis, so hopefully will get it solved soon. Just waiting for the results to come through. Just a thought for you to consider.
