  1. A few years back I tried a gluten free diet maybe for about a month or so before getting tested for gluten and having a colonoscopy. My doc said everything was fine. I was experiencing sudden scalp problems, pus filled bumps and alopecia areata and severe anxiety. My scalp would break out in these derm told me it was seborric derm. and follicultis. I only had one type of gluten test and Im not sure what it was. Anyways I went back to my regular diet---which primarily contist of bread and pasta. Anyways my problems came back. I've been seing a dermatologist and my scalp issues are driving me mad. I've tried all kind of shampoos, ointments and I still have huge bald patches popping up and blisters everywhere. So for the past month I've tried going gluten-free again and my scalp is about 95% clear of the bumps. I am so certain that gluten is the culprit or something in my diet. Could I have celiac and still have a clear colonoscopy test? Should I try to get tested again. This is driving me nuts...I went from having beautiful waist length hair to having hair that can barely grow.
