Rash On Baby's Back?
0

3 posts in this topic

My son has not been diagnosed with celiac, but I am working on getting us both diagnosed. He is 20 months old (I guess he's considered a toddler, but he's still my baby) :)

Anyway, he usually has a horrible rash on his toosh and up the back from his toosh that we are used to seeing that I suspect is related to gluten and diarrhea. But, after I gave him a bath tonight I noticed a rash accross the back of his shoulders and neck and a few specs on his tummy. It's not as bad as his butt rash, but I wanted to hear if any mom's with kids had rashy type problems before their kids went gluten free? It looks a lot like a general skin rash, nothing near DH, etc. Can you share with me? I think it'll help when we go to the pediatrician. Also, any other symptoms I might not relate that you noticed in your child besides the failure to thrive, typical symptoms? Thanks so much! Sure wish he could talk to me and tell me how he's feeling!

My twin girls who are 9 would always, for at least 2 years, want me to scratch their back constantly. On the top of their backs and down almost half they would have this rash. It was more 'invasive" looking that a typical heat rash and would really itch them. We tried things like changing shampoos, changing soaps, new laundry products but nothing would help. I would put hydrocortisone cream on the rash to help with the itching but that didn't help much. I would have to cut out all the tags on their clothes.

Guess what? They have been gluten free for almost 10 weeks and no more itchy back rash!! It just had to be related to gluten. Their skin is smooth and clear now.

But they still want mom to scratch their backs! :):)

My little guy had it on the back of his neck and shoulders, down to the middle of his back. He was constantly itching also. We have been gluten free for 5 weeks and his rash is almost completely gone and he doesn't itch it anymore!

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!

      Although, gluten free...chocolate gives me reflux if I eat too much.  I can handle only a little.
    • 3 year old Biopsy concern
      Hi. I'm brand new to all of this. Long story short but basically my three year old tested positive for antibodies last week. His biopsy is coming up and I've read some debate about it. I'm nervous for him to be fully sedated and if so want to make sure it's worth it. He's been off gluten for a week which his gi assured me wouldn't change the biopsy results in two weeks. He's like a new kid so I'm just wondering why put him through it. I have two other kids that we now want do the blood test on and I'm guessing a biopsy would help for them to know. Again just hesitant. Thank you
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
