Your GI should be shot! Why do they think it isn't important to communicate with us? It is OUR bodies! They don't even consider that we are living thinking human beings! We are just "parts" to them. GRRR...
I hope it turns out to be nothing serious. Maybe your GI hasn't fulfilled his "quota" of referrals this month. I swear, they are all in on a money-making scheme. ("Hey, if I refer x amount of patients to you, can we split the $?")
Sorry, I'm a bit down on the medical profession. Please let us know as soon as you find out. In the meantime, (((HUGS)))
Look up gutate psoriasis. As a matter of fact, if you google "gutate lesions" you will see images that look very much like the pics you posted. That's not to say that's what it is, but it might be. Gutate psoriasis itches too, but not as badly as DH.
It sounds like you do have a problem with gluten. You may or may not have celiac, but there is a thing called non-celiac gluten intolerance that gives the same symptoms. And psoriasis is definitely associated with gluten. Stress is another factor.
I have psoriasis. Mine is palmoplantar pustular. It doesn't itch, it just hurts. I only get it on my hands and feet. The feet take forever to heal. At one point my hands were completely healed and my feet were finally ALMOST completely healed. Then I got glutened. My hands flared for a while, but my feet flared badly and are still a mess. As a matter of fact, my feet have started itching - not all the time, but in waves. They'll be OK for a while, then I get to itching so much I HAVE to scratch. Half an hour later it'll calm down. This happens several times a day.
At first I thought I might be developing DH too, especially because the rash looks different than it used to. But I now believe I have develpoed gutate psoriasis on my feet.
And the other day I had a REALLY bad day. Lots of things went wrong and I was totally stressed out for a while. I woke up the following morning with new pustules on my hands - lots of them. I know for certain it wasn't food that did it because my house and shop are completely free of all of my "poisons". Everything I ate was not only what I always eat, but there were no new packages involved. (It's good to read the label EVERY TIME you buy something because they change ingredients often depending on price and availability.)
So try to think back. What did you eat when your rash flared, and did anything happen to stress you out during those times?
I have multiple food intolerances, but honestly, at this point in your journey you are likely to have gluten-feeling reactions to just about anything. You aren't healed yet and your body is confused. When I first started I would get D from sweet potatoes!
I would suggest that you eat ONLY foods that you have prepared yourself for a while. Don't take a chance on CC. Try to eat "gentle" foods for a while, nothing too greasy, nothing with too much fiber. One of the things that helped me was going organic. I was actually reacting to pesticide and chemical fertilizers no matter how much I scrubbed my veggies. It made a huge difference, and now I can buy things in the grocery store again. And keep a food diary. Maybe start out with a few foods you know don't bother you, then slowly add things back, one a week.
Give it time and I'm sure you will heal and find you can eat lots of things.
Karen, I apologize for leaving you out of my last post where I mentioned the people who first gave me help, compassion, and great advice. You were one of those people, along with Irish, Skylark, and of course Mushroom.
Now, I have to say this - I once had a cat who was so different from every other cat I ever had. Her name was Don't Jump, and she was smarter, funnier, and more loving that any cat in history.
She, I'm sure, was the first kitty to meet Mushroom in Heaven. She had to be because she wanted to thank Mushroom for helping me, and she needed to welcome her and give her all of that love.
I'm just babbling here folks. Still in shock I guess. When I got up this morning I started crying again.
I'm sure that if WE are hurting for Mushroom's family, that the people who knew her in "real life" must be surrounding them with love and comfort. If any of her friends in NZ are reading this, please please please, give them all hugs from us.
