My husband and I opted to forego the 6 months of torture to our little guy and just went ahead and began a gluten free diet for him. At the same time to support his new dietary restrictions, I too went gluten free and found that after years of suffering various skin rashes and phantom inflamation flares from swollen knees, wrists and feet, to year long bouts with Iritis, that I too felt much better.
We have been living gluten free for a year of so now and my son and I are finally feeling healthy.
Recently, I did a paper maché project with my daughter and got one of my rashes which I suspect is due to exposure to the flour and water paste - has anyone else experienced a reaction to gluten from topical exposure?
I was under the impression that one had to eat gluten to have a reaction, but now I'm suspicious.

Here is a link to a recipe that uses corn starch, water, and glue (elmer's):
We did a paper mache school project, and all we used was one part water to one part elmer's and it worked fine . . . so well, that we can't seem to throw it out as my son is quite attached to it.
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
