Rash That Won't Go Away

5 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with Celiac about 3 months ago. I never had any symptoms, and was only diagnosed because a family member was. As soon as I found out I went gluten free.

 

Two Saturdays ago (9 days) I had a little to drink, and not thinking about it, ate two burritos on flour tortillas. The next morning, I had a large, red, raised rash on my left inner thigh that was very itchy. After that, small itchy flesh colored bumps have appeared on my left forearm, my lower back, and my genitals. New bumps are starting to appear on my right inner thigh. I am not really sure if it is getting better, but if it is it is taking a long time.

 

I read up on it, but I'm not sure if this is dermatitis herpetiformis. I am at college away from home, so I can't really go to a doctor, and I know the on campus clinic will not be helpful.

 

Anyone else experience similar symptoms? What can I do to speed the healing process up? How long will this rash be here?

JJ, It sound like DH, if you can get Clobetasol Propionate cream works good but you need a doctor to get it.

Any moisturizing cream will help a little. I sometimes use a tanning bed. I think the uv rays make it better.

Also Aveeno for baby's eczema therapy cream from Walmart. I only use baby soap to wash with.

Hope it helps. Aircare

I've not been diagnosed yet with Celiac but I have DH (which we always thought was palmplantar pustular psoriasis). I will be getting a skin biopsy and bloodwork to confirm soon. I have to use an organic pure castille soap (I use Dr. Bronner's) which tends not to irritate my skin into blistering more. I also have to use an SLS-free shampoo. I use Aubrey Organics Green Tea Clarifying Shampoo as I have oily hair. I tend not to moisturize my hands unless they feel overly dry. Then I only use Dr. Bronner's hand lotion. It's not a thick lotion, but it works well and doesn't irritate my hands and feet. I do occasionally use Triamcinolone .1% ointment on my hands and feet though I hate getting it on my hands because I hate having emolients on my hands. I only use it once a month on my feet because when I was using it the prescribed number of times per day I kept getting very deep extremely painful splits/cracks in the skin on my feet that bled everywhere. Since stopping the steroids on my feet I rarely have that problem anymore. There really isn't much to do other than go gluten-free completely. But I have yet to do that since if I did go gluten-free prior to the bloodwork and biopsy they would show up as negative results. I need positive results.

 

Good luck! I hope you can get this under control. I know how itchy and annoying it can be.

Aveeno contains Oats . . . I couldn't use that product.  I read ingredients not only on food to be safe.
