Topics I've Started


10 October 2012 - 09:22 PM

Does this look like anyone's DH? It's affecting both elbows and itches like crazy...this is actually my little sister and she has had flares of this rash for the last two years and it always happens on both elbows at the same time and always looks like this but sometimes worse...


Antibodies Tests

06 October 2012 - 12:40 PM

I'm going to risk looking like a hypochondriac with this considering all of my other posts hoping some of the medical people on here cab help me out...but my doctor did some blood work on me (excluding celiac even tho I ran gluten sensitivities by her after my gluten trial and error diet) and she said the findings were normal but the CCP Antibodies in my RF profile came back 26 (weak positive) but the RA Latex Turbid came back within normal limits (8.5). ESR, CRP, and ANA were all negative...could this mean anything? Could this be a weak positive because of a gluten issue? Whether it's coincidence or not, I have had major issues since consuming a large amount of gluten two weeks ago. Any answers and peace of mind would e appreciated!!

Hives Vs Dh?

03 October 2012 - 08:19 PM

Hives or DH presentation? Thoughts please! I was thinking hives but it has been brought to my attention DH can present like hives...but can it come and go like hives? They seem to last 30min to 2hrs then fade but others take their place in other areas...this has only been going on since last night and I have not changed one single thing about my eating or environmental habits.

Could not get the links to work or pics to load so hopefully the below link will navigate you to my pics.


Late Phase Allergic Reaction?

03 October 2012 - 05:19 PM

I was gluten free for two weeks then had a bunch of gluten filled foods a week ago but have not consumed it since and have had some symptoms that could be reaction or could be coincidence...I don't know.

Last night I developed some hives and itched all over, today I have had hives on and off all day...pretty significant in size too... Benadryl took most itching away and held off hives for a while but I am getting them again about 4hrs after last dose.

I have not changed a single thing in my diet or household items in the last week other than removing gluten...is it possible this could be a delayed reaction to eating the gluten a week ago?? Has anyone had anything like this? Is it more likely to be coincidence?

I went to the allergist and he wanted to skin test me but because I also took Benadryl last night the test could not be accurately read so he wants to retest after I har been off Benadryl for at least 5 days. He figured that would happen but was hopefull because I was actively producing hives in his office.

All answers are appreciated!
