i have had a rash on the palms of my hands for at least 15 years - doctors just threw steroid creams at it. so i googled rash on palms and this is what it came up with.
small yellow blisters that dried up leaving the skin on top all thick and dry that eventually flaked off. for years now ive picked at it constantly, even tried filing it down with an emery board to keep it smooth.it looks awfull and my palms are always red and sore.
it has cleared up somewhat on the gluten and dairy free diet (at one point it had virtually disappeared- thought it was the dairy) but its still lingering.
so as i said i already knew what it was but just googled it again and this time its said its linked to auto immune diseases like celiac!!!!. maybe i googled it before my doctor went down the whole celiac route coz i dont remember the connection or maybe i was just didnt put 2 and 2 together!!!
if thats right im soooo pissed off. if all this information is available on the net then why dont doctors know about it!!!
so thats palmoplantor pustular psoriasis, and scleritis - something the doctors didnt explain to me what it was !!! both auto immune diseases but all my results came back negative so havent even been diagnosed with celiac.
im just sooo mad at the moment. if this could have been sorted out 15 years ago!!!!
has anyone else had it / got it. is it connected to celiac. do i need to go back to docs to explain the connection!! ive been off gluten for 8 weeks now- havent tried a gluten trial yet so dont know how i,ll react if i have to go back on it. im just so mad at the moment
. this is me right now lol
