Rash That Won't Go Away

25 March 2013 - 03:53 PM

I was diagnosed with Celiac about 3 months ago. I never had any symptoms, and was only diagnosed because a family member was. As soon as I found out I went gluten free.


Two Saturdays ago (9 days) I had a little to drink, and not thinking about it, ate two burritos on flour tortillas. The next morning, I had a large, red, raised rash on my left inner thigh that was very itchy. After that, small itchy flesh colored bumps have appeared on my left forearm, my lower back, and my genitals. New bumps are starting to appear on my right inner thigh. I am not really sure if it is getting better, but if it is it is taking a long time.


I read up on it, but I'm not sure if this is dermatitis herpetiformis. I am at college away from home, so I can't really go to a doctor, and I know the on campus clinic will not be helpful.


Anyone else experience similar symptoms? What can I do to speed the healing process up? How long will this rash be here?
