MMMD wrote:I don't know if I have this or not, but I have had scalp sores for a few years that won't go away. I've been to my dermatologist about it, and without actually looking at the sores, he prescribed a 6-week antibiotic course. At the time, I was thrilled to hear that he thought it was a bacterial infection (not gluten related) and was happy to follow the regimen. Nothing happened. The sores did not budge. When I want back to the doctor, his response was to put me on antibiotics for 6 months (again, without actually looking at what's on my head). I asked if he could at least test me for DH, but he said there's no way to do that. Of course I know there is.
I am not comfortable with a 6 months antibiotic regimen, so my question is, did anyone with DH have it on their head and if so, how was it diagnosed? Do I need a new dermatologist? Any experiences with this would be appreciated.
