      Rash Question
      Hi, I am trying to determine the source of a rash that I've had on my scalp for about 10 years now. I've recently been told that I have IBS but I suspect that I have celiac disease. I have about three spots of rashes on my scalp that are very painful and itchy. Two of them happen to be located where I had stitches as a child. This was when I was 8 and 9, about 20 years ago. I am now wondering if gluten may have been in the suture used. I have no way of knowing what was used. I've looked at the ingredient listing of sutures, but I'm no chemist. I don't know if they use gluten.

      I tried a scalp therapy conditioner yesterday. It made my scalp feel great for a few hours. But today the rash is much worse. I did see that the conditioner had wheat protein in it. I thought this would be a good test.

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Rash Testing
      I'm new here so please forgive me if this question is redundant. I have recently been diagnosed with IBS but I'm wondering if I might have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. My GI ran two blood tests. I don't know the specifics. I just know the numbers were 3 and 6 with a 20 being positive. When I see him in two weeks I plan to ask him for details and numbers. I am probably just crazy and a hypochondriac, but who knows. I am wondering if a biopsy can be taken of my rashes to diagnose celiac disease? I have 3-4 patches of intensely itchy and scaly rashes on my scalp. I've had 2 of these for going on 10 years now. The last two popped up in the last two weeks. And they started out as painful bumps with a tip that sloughed off, leaving behind this scaly rash. I also have a rash on my upper arm but it isn't too itchy. It just looks like a lot of little raised blood vessels. I guess I could ask for a referral to a dermatologist.

      I have a history of depression, anxiety and stomach problems. I've been lactose intolerant for the same 10 years. Also have migraines and unexplainable fatigue. My skin is extremely sensitive - I cannot wear makeup. I have found that certain shampoos and conditioners make the rashes worse. Neutregena T gel makes is even more worse. I think I'll check their ingredients for gluten.

      Please help! I think I'm crazy and so does my doctor and family. My sister and mom have the lactose intolerance too. This makes me wonder, since I know celiac disease is inherited.

      Thanks so much!!!!
