do you itch as though things are crawling under the skin? do you get white heads on your skin that go away 1-2 hours later as though they were never there? do you have severe headaches? my son is waiting on test results, i have lots of questions, do any of the celiacs have heart deformitites thank you

I do get the crawling under the skin feeling, the heads do look white but when i popped a blister it was clear, headaches not so much, but yes I do get them. I am going to the Derm on friday hopefully I will have some blisters so they can biopsy them. and I don't think that I have any heart deformities that I know of just a little high choloesterol.

I too am having the same itching problem... I itch on my shoulders, back and my whole arms... Morningm noon and night....
I am Celiac and just found out about 4 months ago... I am eating a gluten free diet and I am using Shampoo and Soap that is Gluten free but no help from them...
There has to be an answer out there somewhere to help with this maddness...
If anyone has any please pass it on...

I would suspect another food intolerance is causing the itching. I itched like crazy when I quit eating gluten. Soy turned out to be the main problem, potatoes the secondary problem. Keep a food diary and found out what you are eating a lot of (I had no idea how much soy I was eating) and eliminate that. If that doesn't work, go through all the major food allergens (corn, diary, eggs, etc.) one at a time and see if it makes a difference.

All research I keep doing on DH lists big, red blister-type bumps, but this thread mentioned tiny flesh-colored, but extremely itchy bumps. I noticed these "rough patches" a long while back (can't remember when). I've been gluten free for just over a week now, and I'm having a hard time finding them, when they used to be just always there. Could this have been a mild form of DH?

Self-diagnosed June 7, 2010.
After some dietary experimentation, I'm gluten-free as of June 28, 2010.
Egg free as of July 1, 2010 for elimination diet testing.
Distinct reaction to dairy July 8, 2010.
Going on full elimination diet to rule out all possibilities.
Dairy, soy, nightshade, fish, shellfish, mushroom, peanut, tree nut, and lectins that weren't specified in the above list free as of July 9, 2010.
Strikeouts indicate re-introduced foods that did not generate a reaction.
