Eczema or Dermatitis Herpetiformis?

Many people suffer with long-term skin issues and many never find the answer. Over the years I have seen “eczema” become a bigger and bigger issue beginning in infancy and evolving as they get older. We know that eczema is sometimes the catch all for skin rashes. Eczema can include red bumps, itching, inflammation, pain, swelling, scaly, and dry skin. This can be chronic or acute and due to several reasons from environmental assaults to food allergies. Many children benefit from the use of creams on the irritated skin but what happens when that does not work?

Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) is a chronic disease of the skin marked by groups of watery, itchy blisters. Food containing gluten triggers an immune response that deposits antibodies at the top layer of the skin. DH is hereditary linked to gluten intolerance, children will not always show up gluten intolerant in testing. Parents should investigate food sensitivity/allergy testing as this may be the first glimpse of an issue.

It is also important to address overall digestion and immune function.
