You might want to read about salicylates. I was looking at this for someone else and saw gum rash and nasal polyps.

Google Image search for CANKER SORES.
I had these with DH & GI & nerve issues when the gluten intake was at the highest.
Let us know if it looks like canker sores or otherwise.

BTW The lesions in my nostrils looked very similar to the canker sores in my mouth.

Both confused immunity from other foods and reactions to Salicylate make sense. I've been eating plenty of avocados and fish as I love them together, then having clementines (tangerines) for desert, and then a nice salad with plenty of tomatoes and pepper/basil/oregano/basil/apple cider vinegar dressing for dinner.. Everything I've been eating is high on Salicylate.
Of course there is no way of finding out which problem it really is because the symptoms are present in both situations, but at least the solution is simple, eliminating the foods. I think I'll just go outside in the garden and start eating grass with my bunny because that's all I'll be able to eat soon.

I'm sure I've been gluten-free, yet yesterday the mini-lesions showed up on my finger again and I'm constipated. There could not have been any CC because there isn't any gluten in the house and I rarely ever eat out or buy ready food nowadays. My husband washes his mouth and mustache the moment he walks into the house.

No explanation other than my immunity having broken fuses.

A little update about the dentist visit today: The Doc wasn't sure what it was but she said that whatever it was it looked like it has started healing. She also told me it could have been an allergy or the mouth wash so I have to avoid those too now.

Problem is this leaves so little on the menu for me now ;-(

Well, at least you have somewhere to start.

You can develop allergies to meds at any time, same with foods.

When you go gluten-free your body starts resetting, healing - for lack of better terms. The first 6 months are really a free-for-all. Anything can and will (apparently) happen.

The good new is sals are cumulative. Bad news is sals are cumulative. And having a problem with a few doesn't mean you have a problem with all. And it may not be permanent.

Dont get discouraged. You'll get there.

I do find one autoimmune eruption triggers another, or illness triggers another reaction. Seems common, so don't be surprised about a finger spot showing up. I think the term is "let it ride" at this point.

Intermittent bowel changes are common in the beginning. Your body is changing, your diet is changing. Plus, having something going in in your mouth is likely, IMO, to affect digestion. That's how it works with babies, anyway :).

At least you don't have an infection. That's good news?

Also, gluten can hang around on surfaces for a long time, and in cracks and crevices. Soap and water is sufficient to remove it but you may want to replace scratched food service items like cutting boards and storage containers -and colanders are notoriously permanently contaminated.

I know, another thing to deal with. Go have a grass martini??

If you need a good no- sal, gluten-free lotion for your rash I use Vanicream. I don't know if it is sold in Sweden.

You deserve a gigantic hug Prickly! *HUUUG*
It's hard not to get obsessive about the spots showing up because they're the first sign of CC.. I actually spend a large portion of the day staring at my finger. That must look really strange ;-)
Yes, there is no infection :-) There wasn't even a need for an emergency cleanup. All is well.

I got so obsessed with tracking my underarm rash I drew dots around the perimeter with a sharpie to track its growth.

You know someone might have celiac when they can't stop staring at strange parts of their bodies ;-)

Could it be coxsackie virus? That causes mouth sores on the gums and throat and also cause spots and blisters on hands and feet. Here in the US, coxsackie virus is very common this time of year. My husband and 2 daughters all had it about 2yrs ago. It's most common in children but adults can get it too. The sores in the mouth and throat can be very painful. It usually lasts a week.

Prickly, Squirming and dani

You have helped me so much with the DH issue. I have been reading all the posts on this topic. I can't understand why Drs don't read patient forums. They could learn more than by reading the crap put out by the AMA.

The oddest thing has happened to me and I feel a little guilty about it after reading what a rough time some of you are having with this !%# crazy making disease. I woke up this morning and immediately realized I hadn't been scratching at all last night. It's 4.00 pm here and no itching. Well, I have rubbed a couple of old spots but nothing like usual. I cant believe it or explain it.

Nana, I'm going to paste this quote from Prickly from just a few posts above.

"When you go gluten-free your body starts resetting, healing - for lack of better terms. The first 6 months are really a free-for-all. Anything can and will (apparently) happen."<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">


Don't ever feel guilty for not having as hard a time as others. A hard time is relative. And we celebrate when someone just clears up! I hope it lasts for you. And CELEBRATE!Posted Image We celebrate with you.
