Strange Rash Appeared On My Face...help!

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if this was a symptom, or just some silly reaction I'm having to something.

Last night I noticed an itchy rash on both of my cheeks - this morning it is worse...! It's rather red, and I'm trying not to scratch it as I don't want to irritate a rash somewhere as obvious as my face.

I can't think what has caused this...! My skincare routine hasn't changed at all, and I've been very careful not to get glutened. Anyone have any experience of this/ideas as to what may have caused it.

Thanks very much.

Sounds like what I get once in awhile, though not usually on my face. I think it may be the beginnings of a DH breakout, so whenever it occurs, I avoid salt and high protein foods. It usually subsides within a few days.

I hope you've made certain that your skin and hair care products are gluten-free.

Dear RiceGuy,

Can DH look like acne? I have it all over my cheeks especially. It itches and burns! I sometimes scratch it until it bleeds. What is the best treatment?

It could be anything..allergic reaction, virus, heat rash, DH. Best to have your dr or dermatologist look at it.

I don't know. I recently saw a post which mentioned acne in relation to Celiac, and if I recall, it had cleared after going gluten-free. However, I wouldn't doubt the possibility of toxins or some other stuff like candida to cause skin problems like you describe. If I had such, the first thing I'd try after ruling out allergies, toxins, etc, might be to apply coconut oil as a skin cream. While this approach is addressing the wrong end of the problem, it might at least alleviate the itching.
