In the UK it is legal to sell products as gluten-free which use wheat flour processed to remove the gluten. Very small traces remain and some people react to this, or to other proteins from the wheat.

yes it can be, i had my DH only 3-5 times in the last 20 years, every break out was about 3-5 month. numerous doctor visit, said it was psoriasis, eczema, washing powder allergy...etc steroids, anti-biotics and anti-histamins after my skin cleared up.
last out break about two month ago dermatologist offered hystology, now they know it was DH. no more itchy night for me, the blisters disappered in 2 days iam on gluten free diet, feeling 60 percent better still recovering after such long time i guess. it took them 20 years to find what was the problem....
I dont belive there is any skin problem without problems inside, but doctors know eczema and psoriasis, steroid cream good for most of it, and they dont want look behind the scene....
good luck with your husband, hope you can figuer this problem out sooner than i did
