Hello all -

 

I haven't been on here much but I broke out in a bad, itchy, painful rash 2 nights ago. I have had every symptom of Celiac but DH. I always thought I was so lucky to not have DH.

 

My rash is on my sides and stomach area....at first I thought it was shingles. I went to the doctor and he said it looks like an allergic reaction. I did cheat on my gluten-free diet a few weeks ago (got really sick from it at that point) and now this weird rash.

 

Has anyone else developed DH or a rash after being gluten-free for a while and never had a rash before??

 

Thanks for any help :)

I wish I had time to go through this forum & give you a thread link for every celiac who only had gut issues UNTIL...... one day they either cheated on the diet or got glutened & then bingo! Rash! And they had never, ever had the rash before.

Many ppl with the rash find that limiting their iodine intake for a week or two helps the rash to ramp down. Here's a link for low iodine diet --- of course -- leave out the gluten:

Self diagnosed dh Sept. 2011~~~ confirmed dx July 18, 2012
Gluten free Dec. 2011
Soy free Dec. 2011
Hubs self diagnosed dh March 30, 2012
Hubs gluten free March 30, 2012

Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.
