Dermatitis Herpetiformis

I have just started a course of Dapsone (50mg) per day to control a DH outbreak on my chest & back. the first in 5 years since my diagnoses. I had the DH for about 4wks before I started dapsone & am having a blood check this weekend. I have been DH  for 5 years and I think I absorbed wheat via coated fries in a restaurant. Does DH take this long to clear? It is now beginning to abate, but I still have red blotches and some irritation& dry skin which I treat with Cetaphil. I reluctant to stay on Dapsone for the long term  due to some of the side effects. What is your opinion ? Thanks

Try Burt's Bees Hand Repair Creme. It is the best think I have EVER used on my skin. It is even better than the prescriptions.

Also, avoid things that will irritate the skin like fragrances and other chemicals in personal care products.
