Major Symptoms of Dermatitis Herpetiformis

Dermatitis herpetiformis is a common autoimmune condition characterized by the appearance of small, raised bumps on the skin, often on the arms, legs, and buttocks. The bumps are usually painless and can range in color from tan to red. They tend to be itchy and can be distributed throughout the body. The exact cause of dermatitis herpetiformis is not known, but it is thought to involve an abnormal immune response. Treatment typically involves topical corticosteroids and, in some cases, immunosuppressants.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Dermatitis Herpetiformis

5. Pay attention to hygiene: Keep your skin clean, change clothes and quilt covers frequently to avoid bacterial growth and help reduce symptoms.
