I'v been to 8 doctors for a face rash that I developed over a year ago. I have been treated for everything (acne, excema, rosea, perioral derm, yeast ect...) I have been on every antibiotic, steriod, antifungal...ect...When I got the flu it cleared up. When I went yeast free it helped (If you eliminate yeast you also kind of eliminate gluten). I just started gluten free last month it was 100% better (I was on minocycline also) I started eating regularly and it came back even with the minocycline. Now I'm on eyrothcycline????????????. I can't spell. Anyways my doc said, If I have A Celiac, antibotics will help. I said, okay will you just do a boispy, so he did results will be next week. I'm not sure if any of these doc's know anything about celiac, and they don't care. I'm sooo tired. History.....had surgery 1 month before rash, hernia. Had ear yeast infection in oct 2005. endometrosis since 1987, so everything heartburn bowel problems blamed on that. I'm 5'7 weigh 115 eat about 2500 + calories per day, runner, so in theory I say yes celiac, but I know there more to it then that. Here are my questions; 1. if I have DH is there a special test or will a boipsy show it? 2. Will antiboitics helpDH?. 3. what kind of doc should I be seeing? 4. What the most accurate way to be tested knowing that I have been off, and on wheat since about december (thought I was off gluten, but was far from it). I have had 6 times eliminating food with postive results, rash would almost diapperar, and rash seems better in mornings than nights. Doctor call rash perioral dermitits. I have been on antibotics total of 5 months off and on. Sorry this is so choppy. PLease anyone know?

Antibiotics will not help celiac.

If they biopsy the rash, it needs to be next to the blister, not the blister. A dermatologist does that.

A GI doc does the intestinal test, but you do need to be consuming gluten. I was off wheat and all my tests were inconclusive. I ended up going to www.enterolab.com to be tested since you can be gluten-free.
