I have an itchy rash that I get on my upper back. It drives me nuts, but I'm not sure if it's DH or just some other awful rash that has flared up. It's red with tiny bumps.

I have this too..bras just seem to EAT the rash. I read up on DH.and it says that when you eat gluten, it inflames the rash..And that staying gluten-free helps control it..so it could be why we dont have it bad..

My rash goes from mid back all the way to my neck and part of my face. and the whole chest area. Its scabbing from me sratching so much. I was put on some meds for the rash--they didnt work. I assume its DH because I never had this rash until I developed celiac disease..

Milk makes me itch now. I've had a large patch of eczema on my calf for about 20 years. I noticed that milk caused me sinus congestion. I dropped milk to see if it would help. Now after a couple of months, the eczema is clearing up - after 20 years! I also have a patch on my back that gets a little "bubbly" that itchs on and off. I think it's soy that causes this. I had myself tested by York and found milk and soy (among other things) are a problem for me. Gluten never game me any skin problems, but milk and soy do. You might get tested or try giving up these things for a few months to see what happens. I believe the skin recovery time is much slower than the gut recovery time. Don't expect too much too quickly.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
