In Topic: Dh Caused By Stress?

Pricklypear1971, interesting. My niece recently told me that both she and my sister have some kind of thyroid thing and that I should have mine checked. 


I wonder, has anyone here ever gotten conclusive evidence from a known gluten incident? In other words, do we know for sure how long between injesting gluten and the beggining of the breakout? That would help a tiny bit, if I knew it had to have been within 24 hours and I know that I've been gluten free for that time, then I'd know to look for stress, virus or hormone.

Hi, I can't really say by looking but I can describe how mine feels. The itch is insane. Given a choice between having sex while eating chocolate cake on a yacht in the Caribbean, and scratching, I'd take scratching every time. If you've ever had a cold sore on a lip, that's kind of how the rash feels and acts.


 What I've learned over the years is; Don't scratch. Do not pop them. Don't put anything on them except ice, Betamethasone if you can get the prescription (use a tiny amount, don't coat the area), and rubbing alcohol or something like Everclear to help with the itching. Change your towel and washcloth after each shower. Use the coolest water you can take and NO baths until the rash is completely gone. Do not use neosporin or tea tree oil or anything else that might irritate the skin.


 Others here may have had different experiences, these are mine. I no longer use deodorant. I use only Dove soap for sensitive skin and I avoid putting ANYTHING on my skin.

Ah, thank you for the hug! Sometimes life gangs up on me and chillin just isn't in the cards. Switched to sea salt a long time ago. I also avoid nightshade veggies. Still, over the passed week, couple itchy bumps at my waist line and one on the back of my neck.


Oh, and I forgot to mention the 2 years of "hmmm, we're not sure what that is, here have some antibiotics and take 60 mil of prednisone

every day".


Sometimes I see someone at a coffee shop or somewhere and they have a rash on the arms or face and I want so bad to aproach them and tell them to put the muffin down.
