I have had skin tags as long as I can remember. I just realized that since I went gluten free 4 years ago no new skin tags have appeared. Is it possible that it is another symptom of Celiac? Has any one else noticed a decrease in skin tags since going gluten free? :rolleyes:

This is an excellent question, one I have wondered myself. I too have skin tags on my feet but no new ones have cropped up yet since going gluten-free.

Very interesting! It is a bonus to not be continually getting skin tags, if it is from going gluten free it is another reason to be thankful for the celiac diagnosis. :lol: Would be interesting to know if other celiacs have noticed that too.

I don't see a connection for me. I've developed severval more on my neck in the last couple of years. I think if you are prone to getting them, you just do.
