Hello,

For about a year and a half now I have been dealing with a lot of itchiness and bumps. I am 22 years old and have had red bumps appear all over my legs, thighs, stomach, etc. At first I had a few times where it was only my fingers, but it has become more severe now and my fingers are normally the last to become itchy and covered in bumps. The elbows also seems to be a common spot for me but not as itchy there. I have attached pictures and could realllyyyy use some help if someone has had similar rashes and has since then found out what it was. I have been to doctors and they have told me general allergy to swimmers itch to random other things but none of them were 100% sure. Please please please let me know if you can help!!!! Thank you so much!!!!

I have recently been diagnosed with celiac. Many doctors visits leading to the diagnosis all for the wrong thing. I get very itchy when I have a reaction. I will prevent me from sleeping it's so bad. I would also get some skin reaction but no full on rashes. Once I cut gluten thing improved drastically. But even as I write this I am once again struggling with itching. I also think partly because I finally figured out that I was chronically dehydrated because of the damage to my intestines. To counter that I started salt tablet and pedialite in addition to water which helped alot. Many of my diagnosis were as a result of web research. My doctor has been very supportive as well. I inform him of everything I do because it seems like there are dangers to everything including drinking too much water without adding electrolytes.
