Dermatitis Herpetiformis and Gluten Free Diet

Diet to Cure Dermatitis Herpetiformis

The way to cure Dermatitis Herpetiformis is by changing to a gluten free diet.

Although medication has its place, this is a short-term solution that deals with some of the symptoms only.

To deal with all of the symptoms, without the risks and side-effects of medication, a gluten-free diet is the way to go.

You must go on a strict gluten free diet, eliminating all wheat, oats, barley and rye from your diet, as well as a host of food additives based on gluten.

This is difficult but well worth it.

First of all, it will make your dermatitis herpetiformis go away, which is worthwhile right there.  This may take some time.  If you’re on medication to deal with the rash, you may need to say on it for one to three years.

In other words, a gluten free diet will not make your rash disappear instantly.

Please realize that what you have is not dermatitis herpetiformis.  Dermatitis herpetiformis is just a symptom of celiac disease/gluten sensitivity/gluten allergy.

Consider yourself lucky.  By discovering your sensitivity to gluten in this way, you have two big advantages.

One advantage is that by cutting out gluten, you will improve your general health.  The risks of thyroid problems and intestinal lymphoma are significant, along with other severe complications, if you continue to eat gluten.

Better to get a rash and learn to cut gluten, than to get cancer!

You’ll almost certainly notice an increase in energy, and the disappearance of a long list of symptoms you could never get cured, or which you just accepted and never really knew you had.

You will notice these hidden symptoms once they’re gone, trust me.

The other advantage is that the skin rash is so nasty, that you have lots of motivation to stay on a gluten free diet and avoid all the other horrible symptoms that come with gluten consumption for celiacs, gluten allergy sufferers, and the gluten sensitive.

Good luck on your gluten free diet.
