Well since my derm apt is in 2 weeks I'm gonna keep on going. I can handle 2 more weeks, I've done a year worth of this!

This is good. Since your child can end up with celiac it would best if you can get a dx.

Really it's hereditary?? My 7 year old has a lot of stomach pain, we took her to a pediatric gi and since she has no diareah it anything they said its in her head. I wonder if it could be the start of something for her down the road? Just pain to begin and in 10 years things will be worse

There is a genetic factor, but only a minority of those with the genes actually develop celiac disease. It is recommended that all first degree relatives of someone diagnosed with celiac disease be tested.

I'm a little late to reply, so I don't know if this is useful information or not..........

My son used to get this rash, head to toe, and start bleeding.
We were given a prescription for a very expensive cortisone cream, but what
we found effective (before going gluten-free and df) was a homeopathic ointment called
Arnica ointment. As a baby, he would literally sigh when it was applied, and it
would take the itch/pain away, and take away the inflammation.
Very difficult days and sleepless nights for the whole family,until we got it all
sorted out. I feel for you, and hope your discomfort gets under control.
When he has a flare up, I pull up his pant leg for the tell-tale sign that he has
been glutened. There is one spot on his leg (he was born with it) that welts
and discolours first - our secondary indicator.
Good luck
