Hi. I have recently been diagnosed with subclinical Hypothyroidism (Hashi's) and I know that Gluten intolerance can go together with Hashi's. I have been having a few bouts of bloating, mild cramping and loose bowel movements but no weight loss at all or vomiting and nothing too bad so I'm not sure if I am Gluten intolerant.
Last Tuesday though my knees and elbows started itching like crazy and I went nuts scratching them, I ended up with watery blisters surrounded by hot tight skin that have now turned into red hard scabs and lumps that are still a bit itchy. I thought maybe something had bitten me but today I came across something called Dermatitis herpetiformis while I was looking up things about thyroid and B12 and folate deficiency. It said that it affects people who are gluten intolerant and have auto immune problems and that it is very itchy, causes blisters and occurs around the knees and elbows. I would like to know has anyone on this forum had Dermatitis herpetiformis, does it look anything like this and do I need to mention it to the GP when I go on Friday please? Thanks in advance. Angie.
