It may be difficult to distinguish LABD clinically from dermatitis herpetiformis
. They are both blistering diseases and on immunofluorescence microscopy show evidence of IgA deposition; however, dermatitis herpetiformis

The differential diagnosis included linear IgA bullous dermatosis, bullous systemic lupus erythematosus, or dermatitis herpetiformis

, three cases of Hailey Hailey disease, one case of Darriere's disease were reported, and four cases (4%) were diagnosed as bullous pemphigoid and the lesions had no sex difference.
People who have gluten intolerance (including celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis
sufferers) have a reaction to certain proteins in the grains commonly used to make beer, namely barley and wheat.
Adults exhibit fewer digestive disorders than children, and some of these symptoms include fatigue, arthritis, depression, tingling and numbness in the hands and feet, and a skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis
