Duhring's disease (dermatitis herpetiformis) is a skin manifestation of gluten intolerance. He is called a cutaneous form of celiac disease and is often found in the same families where celiac disease suffers.
Duhring's disease is most commonly seen between 14 and 40 years of age. A typical picture of skin lesions in its course are multiform lesions: vesicles, erythema, papules often very itchy, causing a tendency to scratch the affected areas, which results in scabs and scars. The most common lesions are knees and elbows as well as the sacrum and buttocks (very typical location), as well as the torso (more often the back - around the shoulder blades) as well as the face and scalp. About 10% of patients, in addition to skin lesions, have various gastrointestinal symptoms due to complete or almost complete atrophy of the small intestine villi. As with celiac disease, the symptoms of villic atrophy may be unusual (anemia, weakness, depression, etc.). Therefore, after detecting gluten metabolism disorders, celiac disease or Duhring's disease, it is important to follow a gluten-free diet.
Why is Duhring's disease so dangerous?
In short, late gluten intolerance is a big problem for the body. A diet alone may not be enough for the body to recover fully. Gluten intolerance causes poorer calcium absorption and can lead to osteoporosis, and anemia or even depression may occur. Often, people with gluten intolerance struggle with boletus and other diseases. In addition, gastrointestinal mucosa is often not what it should be.
