Is there a cure for DH?
There is no known way to completely get rid of this skin problem.
A chronic condition, it tends to come back again and again. Thus, relief from symptoms is the name of the game. A gluten free diet is the easiest and most consistently successful way to treat symptoms, and will help around 80% of DH sufferers.
As the name of the diet suggests, it simply involves not eating gluten. This protein is found in products such as cereal, breads, flour, and bagels. Basically anything that contains wheat, rye, or barley is a no-no.

Instead, flour substitutes such as besan, buckwheat, soya, sorghum and rice flour can be used in gluten free recipes.
Thankfully, many manufacturers now offer gluten free products, since the occurrence of gluten intolerance is becoming more and more prevalent, so you will find alternatives fairly easily.
