Toddler Has Presitant And Spreading Rash?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Our son has never had a skin reaction to gluten before, and we dont think he has gotten gluten in the last couple weeks, but yesterday he broke out in a rash that started only in his diapered area, but now goes all the way to his toes, and his hand are starting to break out to. The reash does not recact at ll to hydrocotorizone cream (1%), nor destin. He does not seem to even notice its there, it does not appear to itch him at all, and I have not seen him scratch it.

He has a doc's apt already for 4pm monday but we might try to bump that up in light of this.

If it was the Dh or what ever its called when some ppl react to gluten on thier skin, how wouuld we know? What would be a tell tail sign?

Is it sand papery? It could be fifth's disease.... If it is, it's not so bad for him... will take several weeks to clear out of his system. He will be TIRED and get itchy. Tired will last for several weeks.... Adults who get fifths can get JOINT PAIN THAT IS REALLY BAD. - I know first hand- <_< Lasts several MONTHS and you cannot understate how bad it can be. Rocked our small town last spring. Many adults out of commission with it.

No, not sandpapery, many bit red welts, well of various sizes, but distinctly seperate welts.

I never had a skin reaction to gluten until after I started the diet and got glutened. If I have the slightest amount of gluten, I will get skin break-outs. They are mosquito/chicken pox like bumps which are usually itchy and they sometimes form a rash. I'm not sure if it is DH which is celiac related or if it is a wheat allergy reaction. Thankfully I've never had enough gluten to find out how bad it gets.

That sounds right, but he is not scratching.

I've only noticed it from ingesting gluten. I've touched gluten since going on the gluten free diet and it didn't seem to do anything.

It can become quite irritated in the mouth and throat. My friend's children had it and they were CRANKY and very sore in their mouths. Popsicles or jello are in order.

My dd had Hand, foot & mouth last summer. She felt really bad and her mouth was really sore. It's hard with very young children because they have a hard time discribing how they feel. From what her ped. said it is highly contagious amoung children. Has your ds run a fever with the virus?

Hope he's feeling better soon. :)

I did the same thing a while back, Em was sick, and I was *sure* she had been glutened. She had a high fever, and later broke out in a rash. Turned out to be plain ole case of Roseola! :D
