So my son Izak got glutened the other day - a well meaning but totally ditzy friend of my mom's was watching him for a few minutes while she went out to the post office, and when my mom came back, her friend said 'oh, we had such a good time - I gave him a cookie!!' AGH! the next day, he had his old explosive yellow liquid poop, but he also got this weird rash on his tummy...went from about his crotch not quite up to his nipple line, and it almost looked like little bug bites or chicken pox, but not blisters...almost pimply looking after a day had passed. Like they started out all red & raised like bug bites, then turned into little white-head-y looking things as they got smaller. I thought it was kind of weird that it was just on his abdomen too...anyone else's kids get something like this? It didn't seem to bother him, and was confined to just his belly - almost diaper rash-y looking. Weird?


DS1&only(so far!): born 7/12/05 * chronic diarrhea from age 5 mos. * WF/gluten-free from age 9 mos. * NO MORE LOOSE POOP!

10/19/2006 Tested positive for DQ2 Heterodimer (HLA DQA1*05/DQB1*02) and negative for HLA DQ8. Have followup appt. with ped. GI in December!

Update: Told GI I was unwilling to do serum tests (give him gluten). GI said if what I was doing works, then keep on keepin' on! Happy, healthy & nearly two now! Occasional rash & loose poop from drinking bathwater, so switching to all gluten-free beauty/personal products.

The rash sounds a lot like DH to me, even though the location sounds odd. I am sure it is caused by the gluten and will pass.


I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

I'm completely new to this website but just read your post about a rash. My son who is 2 developd a rash that sounds exactly the same, but only it was on his inner thighs and bum. This happened just about 1-2 weeks ago. I took him to the doctors and she said it was chicken pox. I wouldn't believe that it was b/c he had the vaccination for Chicken pox when he was one and there is about a 5% chance that he could get the chicken pox. So i finally got in to see my regular doctor and he said it wasn't chicken pox. We don't know what caused it but my son just had blood work done about 3 weeks ago to test for Celiac and it came back "suggestive" of celiac. So right away I was upset and concerned and confused, not knowing what celiac was. My son has been referred to a hospital to see a specialist but we haven't booked an appointment yet. My Ped. said it's just to rule things out and it may be that he doesn't have celiac. How does a test come back "suggestive" but possibly also mean that he doesn't have celiac?

Anyway, I was just really surprised when I read about your son's rash when my son was just getting over something similar. Now i"m just babbling.
