Can you make an appt with your dermatologist? They usually have fast availability, and should be able to get you in quickly if you explain the problem. If you need a referral you should be able to request one from your PCP's office.

 

The dermatologist would be able to biopsy you, and put you on dapsone.

I don't think that sort of place exists anymore. Even in regions of the world that traditionally have not comsumed gluten, western foods are now ubiquitous. Wheat is the most commonly grown crop in the world, and is transported everywhere.

What foods are you eating? Specifically, which processed foods?

 

The next step for you would be to try to Fasano diet, which is specifically designed for people exactly in your situation. It focuses on eliminating trace gluten contamination in the diet by eliminating processed "gluten-free" foods. His book is excellent.

From what I've read other people reporting it can be immediate to a few hours to 1 day. I've never heard longer than 1 day before you know.

 

My DH usually appears about 48 hours after exposure. According to the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, DH usually appears within a day or two, sometimes within hours, after gluten exposure:

In order of how I would approach this:

1. I second the idea of exploring what's happening at school/sports or with friends, especially since there's been a sudden change. 

2. Doctor's visit to rule out other health issues.

3. 6 months is around the time that some patients start to report increased sensitivity. If 1 & 2 yield no answers, you may need to look more closely at home.
