If your rash is dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) then you may end up with false negatives.  Those with dh have a notoriously high false negative rate for the blood tests and endoscopic biopsy.  Often a biopsy beside the rash is needed.

 

Were you eating gluten in the 2-3 months before the test was done?

 yes, it had only been about a week that I stopped. And that was food, I did not go threw my hair products etc. But, honestly I guess im not that much of a bread, pasta eater. but, I know its in all sorts of things. I will contact my dermatologist. thanks for the info.
