What is Dermatitis herpetiformis?
It is a chronic papulovesicular, intensely pluritic blistering skin lesion. It is associated with gluten sensitivity (celiac disease). Gluten triggers the Immunoglobulin A at the tips of dermal papillae which shoot neutrophils to the epidermis causing blistering of tips leading to microabesses that results in intense itching.
