Red Sore Bumps On Buttocks
0

3 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with celiac the end of Oct. 2008. I had very vague gi issues mostly bad persistant heartburn and constipation which at the time I thought was just normal and anemia. I have been gluten free since then with the exception of a couple of mishaps. I also recently tried gluten free oats in some cookies and can not tolerate those either. They made me burp excessively, heartburn and stomach cramping. I have now developed a cluster of raised, red, swollen and painful bumps on my buttocks. I used to periodically get little red bumps there for years and just figured it was heat rash. I am beginning to wonder if it was from gluten. I hardly ever have it any more until this new thing cropped up. Is it possible to develop DH or another form of rash after being gluten free? I would suspect it is from getting glutened. Is it possible it could be a reaction form the cookies with oats in that I ate around June 19th or would it be more likely to be from something more recent? It is quite bothersome and when my clothes rub against it is is sore. Any thoughts?

Hi Roda,

I had bumps like that on my buttocks for YEARS. My parents always told me it was a "heat rash" (I can't believe how much our stories have in common). It was really uncomfortable to sit on hard surfaces <_< especially the bathtub. The bumps went away on the gluten-free diet (!!)... and then I developed a new rash. It's not DH (I had a biopsy)... for a number of reasons I'm now pretty sure it's urticarial vasculitis. I have an appointment with my dermatologist later this month.

Incidentally, I was glutened at a restaurant a couple of weeks ago and a few of those "bumps" on my buttocks returned :( I agree with you that gluten is probably the culprit.

I get that rash in the groin area but only if I'm glutened on consecutive days. I was using a flavoring every day in my coffee that brought it back and on another occasion, it was stevia packet that had wheat.
