Red Dots On Skin
0

4 posts in this topic

I`ve got gluten intolerance without celiac. Im getting small patches of red dots caused by bleeding into the skin sometimes coming back in the same place and other places. Does anyone else have this with or without celiac?

Sounds like they could be hemangiomas. Hereditary and harmless if they are. I don't know about being celiac disease related. I've had them all my life, but a while back I really broke out with them.

While this message isn't meant to replace a good doctor's advice by any means - I think what you're talking about is sometimes called petechiae. I saw this happen on my skin once when I was pregnant. They did a complete blood count and my low platelets were potentially causing the problem.

I've never heard it being related to Celiac disease - and from what I understand gluten intolerance is not the same as Celiac because damage is not being done to the small intestine.

I used to get this a lot before going gluten-free, now I only get it occasionally. I'm not sure what causes it, but I would get it mostly on my face and my upper arms, it looked especially weird on my eyelids.
