Is this a gluten rash?

Hi. 

We're currently in the diagnosis process. My daughter has been gluten free for over a year as we notice that she was displaying lots of the symptoms associated with being intolerant to gluten. She has taken the one blood test which said that she displayed 90% of the celiac markers. We reintroduced gluten five weeks ago and she is due to have another blood test which will give us a definitive answer. This week lots of spots have appeared on her inner arm. They're very itchy and don't seem to be going. She's never experienced this type of before. May this be a gluten rash? 

Many thanks.

It could be, but lots of rashes look the same.  If it is DH, it can be biopsied by a dermatologist.  If positive, then you have a celiac diagnosis.  

Was her first test a genetic test?  If so, keep in mind that some 30% of the population has the genes that might turn into celiac disease (rare).  It is not used to diagnose celiac disease, but to help rule it out.    The blood test (checking for antibodies) should help the diagnostic process, but an endoscopy to obtain small intestinal biopsies usually solidifies the diagnosis.

    Thanks.  I think these were not the freshest tortillas.  Layering instead of rolling tastes the same but isn’t as “ fun” as rolled.  
    It is ugly truth that taking vitamins/minerals with RDA and AI can leads to major side effect. Biotin: it comes in food and supplement. It is highly suggested not to take it doses more than 30 µg. Its biggest sources is almond,cauliflower ...
    This is great advice, my mother and grand mother (both Hispanic) always would get the freshest ones and dip in the sauce before rolling. When reheating it varied with tortillas on freshness (and how much of a hurry) but they either heated...
