I can't add much more than whats already written but to add welcome and I have DH too.
I found 1 lotion that took the edge off but didn't take away the itching.
You asked about complications - by the time I was Dx'd I had the rash from ankle to upper thighs, whole butt, and from upper arms to fingertips. My legs itched the worst and would scratch till they were a bloody mess. I was afraid of scarring but there was none, it took a few months for it to heal but you never would know today.
Mine started on my hands and if I touch gluten I'll get some of the blisters to form. I've read that it's like shingles where the 1st place it attacks is where it will first reappear, it seems to follow that pattern for me. I don't care that the Mayo Clinic says the molecule is too big to pass through the skin, my skin begs to differ.
