Non-Itchy Rash Celiac/gluten Related?
0

7 posts in this topic

Firstly, I apologize for posting a lot lately while I try to figure out what's going on!

My question is,

Does anyone here experiences a non-itchy rash related to their gluten ingestion?

This year on the onset of my symptoms I noticed a bumpy rash on my buttocks (both sides). I thought it was acne (I know, gross!) but it doesn't seem to be that. It starts as flat red tiny bumps but then some grow and become raised. Only thing is that it doesn't itch! I know DH is supposed to itch insanely so I was wondering if this is something related to gluten. I know it can be tons of different things but due to its location I am kind of embarrassed to go to the derm! :blink:

Thanks so much!

My first thought was hives, but you said non itchy....

A trip to the doc might be required.

Thanks! Surely this rash is not gluten related. Since there are so many crazy symptoms associated with GS/Celiac I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask! ;)

Actually, I had a rash on the back of my upper arms ever since I can remember, and I don't recall if it used to itch, but basically it didn't. However, about 2-3 months after starting a gluten-free diet, the back of my arms are clear! No rash! I didn't expect that at all.

They were basically small red bumps, and didn't seem to grow larger or smaller or anything. They were just there... and now they're gone. :D

ciamaria, I had the same kind of rash... back of my upper arms, chest, upper thighs. And in my case that, too, disappeared, after just two weeks on the gluten-free diet. But it didn't look like DH at all, just small, bright red bumps. Weird.

When I accidentally eat gluten, I often get a bit of a rash along with my GI symptoms. It is usually my first sign that I accidentally ate something. Mine always show up as little pink dots on my chest, but sometimes elsewhere as well depending how bad it is.

 

It can sometimes be very mildly itchy, but nothing like people normally describe. Just little pink spots. Which makes me think it's not DH. But it definitely seems to be gluten related. 

 

Then again, I haven't had a huge amount of gluten since I figured out my problem-- so maybe if I had more it would turn into full-blown DH? I've always been curious. But not curious enough to try it!!
