  1. Thank you all so much for the suggestions and tips!  It so nice to have such a wonderful place to turn to for advice!
  2. I'm mom of a newly diagnosed Celiac teen.  She has always has an "itchy rash" in her "elbow pits" as we call them since she was little.  It comes and goes.  She was diagnosed ~1 month ago after being in extreme abdominal pain with nasuea, BAD gas, and diarrhea for ~2 months.  She also suffers from depression/anxiety/panic attacks.  Obviously this whole ordeal has been quite stressful.  A week or so ago, she was glutinated and also in extreme stress about school.  An itchy/burning rash popped up again in the elbow pits and down the front of her arms to her hands and also both knees.  I have compared it to pictures of DH and it's pretty much a match.     My questions are:   1.  Does stress and/or gluten cause flare ups?   2. What do you use to calm the itching/burning? After trying cetaphil, cortisone cream and oral benadryl; she found some SolarCane and it finally gave some relief.  The bumps went away in about 24ish hours, but the itchy/burning feel lasted 3-4 days.   Thanks!
  3. I'm the mom of a newly diagnosed celiac 16 yr old daughter.  She was diagnosed about a month ago, and since the "shock" has worn off, we are getting pretty good at the gluten-free diet. (We= me and her, I've gone gluten-free with her)   We are doing pretty good finding gluten-free foods, but are struggling with pasta and burger/hot dog buns!  Udi's are good, but seem more like a chibatti (?) roll. When we ate at Red Robin, I literally asked where they got the burger buns from (Cisco, by the way)  Pasta-wise we have tried one brand (sorry can't remember the name) and it was not pleasant.   Any recommendations?  Oh, and tricks on how to make bread/buns "less dry"?   Thanks!!
