Red Around Mouth

22 May 2013 - 09:19 AM

I have been suffering with a red rash around my mouth for some time.  It extends above my lips all the way to under my jaw. Cortizone makes it go away, but then it comes back worse.  I think the cortizone cream makes it worse.  But I'm wondering if gluten intolerance is the cause.  It looks like severe eczema.I also have been getting red, itchy patches all over my upper body and hands.  I have been eating pretty healthy, but today I had 5 chocolate chip cookies and then I looked in the mirror and the whole area  on my face was flaking.  And all my red patches started itching so intense!   Can gluten intolerance cause redness and flaking around the mouth? I haven't seen those symptoms anywhere.



Gluten Sensitivity

20 December 2012 - 02:22 PM

Hi, I'm confused as to whether I may have a problem with gluten. I have had this weird rash on my face that won't go away and it's not DH, just looks like eczema and it burns and itches so bad. It seems to flare up every other day. I got tested for celiac and it was negative. I've never had this problem before. It started last summer when I went from a typical American diet to a healthy one with plenty of salads, fruits, veggies and veggie juicing. I thought maybe I was allergic to something I was juicing but when the rash would not get better i switched back to my old diet for the most part. Now I have a sensitivity to eating wheat products (I think). I tested negative for all allergies and none of the creams from the dermatologist work. But my rash is not DH and I have no stomach issues. Can a gluten sensitivity be triggered by switching to a healthier diet?
