Hi my name is robyn & I am trying to figure out where my body stands at this time.

I know I have gluten sensitivity but that is the extent of my knowledge.

The basic symptoms:




stomach cramps


energy loss

was told by my doc that my joint pain was due to allergic arthritis.

Well I was talking to my sister about a rash I had & she had mentioned that a patient of hers with celiac develops a rash when she eats bad.

I am not going to lie, i am my own worst enemy. I constantly choose tasty food over my health. I have no will power or discipline.

I occasionally get a rash that resembles prickly heat (its texas, not uncommon) it doesnt spread like poison ivy but does grow in size. Takes a couple months to clear up no matter what I put on it. The itching is AWFUL! I am currently experiencing another rash but of a different kind. It starts as a whelt. Again doesnt spread by contact but grows. They pop up out of no where. I currently have one on my face, arm, butt, foot, & the worst my leg. I know what the basic bug bites look like (again, texas just keeps on giving) this just doesnt fit that bill.

This photos are in order from first appearance to current status




I know this isnt a doctors office but what I guess im looking for is ur thoughts & stories. Info is king & im trying to understand what I am dealing with.

So give me what ya got

Sorry, I can not diagnose the rash. I do not have DH (celiac rash). You could get tested for celiac disease. Also, check our our DH section. Here are the tests:

-tTG IgA and tTG IgG

-DGP IgA and DGP IgG


-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)

-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests

-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken

-skin biopsy taken adjacent to the eruption (if you have a rash)
