Topics I've Started

Dh On Face?

Is that possible? I'm getting this crazy itchy, red and blotchy rash on my jawline and cheek area. Its starting to peel and just looks disgusting.

Testing In Canada

26 November 2013 - 09:28 AM

Hey Canucks.  If your blood test comes back positive, is there any good reason to go get the endoscopy done.  If I read this right, Americans can have insurance claims with regards to the disease ONLY if they have the scopy done, and some countries will not draft you into the army, but again, ONLY if the endoscopy is done.


I just had the blood work done and won't know my results for 1-2 weeks.  If I can stop eating gluten now, I would LOVE to, but if I have to continue for an endoscopy, I'll keep up with the challenge.



Wrinkles Under Your Eyes Aka Dennie Morgan Lines

10 November 2013 - 12:31 PM

Ever since I was a kid, I've always had this line under my eyes. As I've gotten older, its gotten deeper, especially now that I get puffy eyes. Just today I found out that the technical term for this is Dennie-Morgan Lines (or allergy wrinkles), typical of those with eczema (which I have).


Does anyone else have this issue? It only bother me because my concealer ALWAYS creeps into it, and when you're trying to cover up major under eye circles, they become a hassle.

Since I've reintroduced gluten back into my diet these past few weeks, my eczema has come back. I know eczema is common in celiacs but I want to ask, how many of you get a 'non-itchy' kind? I have always had this and what I have closely resembles nummular eczema. From my understanding, its looks like coin or oval shaped lesions which is what I have all over my legs and now along my jawline.

I saw a doctor once when I was a kid regarding it and all he said was put hydrocortisone cream on it if its itchy, but it never has been.


Of course, when I went almost gluten free for a year, it pretty well disappeared but now its back and I'm just wondering if anyone else has gotten this type of rash before.


BTW, its not DH. Doesn't look anything like it and its not in the same usual spots.  I did get pityriasus rosea for 3 months once though and my God I hope to never get that again!
