One of the main reasons I was not that surprised when I was diagnosed (via biopsy) with Celiac Disease is that one of my worst symptoms was itchy skin. This was primarily in the winter, and there is never any sign of a skin ailment, other than the marks I leave from scratching that burning, itchy skin.
No dry skin --believe me, I have tried lotions and ointments and antihistamines....
There is absolutely no sign of any skin rash or blisters or anything!! But I itch and it feels like it's on fire.
This is happening right now and has been going on for 48 hours at this point.
I do not know whether to call the gastroenterologist or the regular physician.
It's driving me crazy! Is this part of the celiac disease?
Have I been gluten-ed and not realized it?
