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?

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.
