I have been gluten free for about 6 weeks and recently, in the last week, I have developed this strange rash on my neck. It's itchy as heck. Nothing has worked to stop the itch. It's red and blotchy and the skin almost looks like a burn scar, with bumps all over it. It doesn't seem to be going away. I have checked my two daily medicines, and both are reported to be gluten free. I just called and made an appt with the local walk in for later today but was wondering if anyone has had this happen before? The rash is all over the front of my neck, in the same location as my thyroid, which doesn't work as well as it should and I take levothyroxine. I haven't been able to figure out anything that could be causing it. I have been really careful to avoid CC. Any thoughts?? Thank you in advance!

If you are undergoing celiac testing DO NOT use steroids for the rash. It will interfere with testing.
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).
Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!
