How long have you been gluten free? Have you been 100% gluten free even with things like lipsticks and other makeups, shampoos, lotions, soaps, and everything like that? It sounds like something may be slipping in some how. How long have you had the rash? Is it itchy or sore or anything? The rash you are talking about sounds like DH possibly. Check that section on here to see if that fits you.

Yeah, the rash should go away after following a gluten-free diet for awhile. Until the rash clears up, maybe try girl boxer shorts or thongs.

Actually, it sounds like it could be a latex allergy. You may want to talk to your doctor about that, as it can become serious. Does this happen if you wear, for instance, panties which have fabric entirely sewn around the elastic?

Yeah I require cotton panties with the latex covered or I get a reaction. Alot of people have issues with latex. Amazingly not everything is gluten. lol

If hose and girdles are a problem also, you may get a reaction triggered from the heat being held in. That is a real problem for me. I have to have 100% cotton underclothing or the entire area covered gets a build-up of heat and triggers a DH oubreak. It does not seem to be as much of a problem on my lower legs, so I wear longer skirts and use thigh high or knee high hose during the summer and knee high socks or leggings during the winter.

I have DH, but I also have a latex allergy and apparently an allergy to certain dyes.

I get that same thing, a rash around the leg line and the waistline, as well as around my ribs where my bra goes. I get undergarments that have the elastic wrapped in cotton and they all have to be white. I found some "boy short" type underwear at JC Penney that I really like, all the elastic is covered and they are just plain white. No problems so far.

Also make sure that your detergent and fabric softener are dye and fragrance free, that really bothers my skin too.

Victoria's secret and I think a lot of the less expensive companies now sell all cotton "boy shorts" for girls in nice colors too. Do you know for sure the rash is DH or could it be something else? I'd see a dermatologist and see if they can figure that part out.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
