Questioning My Daughter.

07 March 2015 - 03:04 PM

I have gluten intolerance as do my two boys. I didn't think my daughter was affected by it so I let her consume it when she goes out places, which is often enough. I notice lately she is getting weird behaviour afterwards, some sores on face and arms, rash around her mouth (almost like a beard), has many stomach aches. I brought her to the doctor for the stomach pains and he assured me it was constipation even though she has 1 or 2 BM a day and it is usually typical in texture and not hard. At times I notice there is even some blood stains on her underwear (at the back end). She is 7 years old. She has been to a party or sleepover almost every weekend, so consuming hot dogs, pizza, cake, pancakes, toast, etc. and I notice that she is getting, not quite pimples, but more open sore like markings on her face and arms (DH, I'm thinking). Plus she has been getting an eczema like rash around her mouth here and there - not necessarily if she had gluten but with foods that she normally is okay with.  I rarely have to bring my kids to the dr. I'm thinking of insisting on some bloodwork just to see if there is something I have look into. We are gluten free at home so she isn't getting constant exposure and I wonder if this is a sign that gluten is a problem for her?
