Now that you mention the underarm rash, yes I do. I get really awful things below my bottom lip on my chin and bumps and rash on my chest. The underarm rash is itchy, red and burns. The facial thing itches and burns the chest itches, and the elbows itch. I have not had any of these since being gluten-free. Next week I have to go back on gluten so that when I see the dermatologist the week after, I can get a for sure diagnosis. I never equated the underarm rash with anything before but now it makes me wonder.

Those under your arms are probably staying irritated either by sweat and heat or by the use of deodorant products. Mine get miserable there. Heat tends to make the itch more intense. Try bathing in a bath of lukewarm water with either a little baking soda or some epsom salts or my favorite, Shaklee's Basic H. You may want to try using some powder under your arms for a while to see if it helps the more irritated areas.

Don't know why those on my chin area and in my ears itch more than anywhere else, though.

Due to your body's hystamine reaction due to gluten, any portion of your body where skin is being rubbed can form DH.

this is why your underarms, buttocks, beltline, neck, elbows, knees or any other place on the body where the skin comes into contact with another surface gets irritated.

Also, DH is common on the joints in general...

It does get better over time....Dapsone helps!!

I have the same problems, though, I have to say my itching has probably decreased by about 90% since going on the gluten-free diet in April. The only things I'm using now are clobetasol, which is a topical steroid, and aloe. I only use the clobetasol if the problem is really bad. I use the aloe as kind of an all over treatment after I take a shower.
