I don't have a problem unless it is very hot - hot baths, not showers can trigger my urticaria.
My intolerance of heat/humidity and exercise in weather over 65 has improved at times since I have been gluten-free, but never gone away completely.
You will likely see improvement in many symptoms that you either didn't tie to celiac or you simply dismissed as "a little this or a little that" - I know I have.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

I try to lead a life as clean as possible and shower as little as humanly possible without being gross. That may sound gross by itself, but it keeps me from being crazy. There is simply no freaking way I would shower every day, I'd be insane. I go for 2-3 times a week. I work out on those days only right before I shower. Other than that I live a more or less sedentary life which probably isn't particularly healthy, but it's particularly unsmelly. During the summer, to always get every other day time between showers I'll damp wash myself in sweaty areas. I should point out that I also don't work a "regular" job every day, so I don't have to worry about offending people besides my husband or MIL who can frankly bugger off.
