So Frustrated Here

Recommended Posts

I went gluten free the beginning of this year. I had been diagnosed with eczema, then spongiotic dermatitis in the vaginal area. I really think it was DH. I had blistery rashes in my underarms and forearms for months. I had big eczema patches. It seemed like everything was itching. Even though my bloodwork had come back negative, I went gluten free. I had so many improvements. The eczema went away. The itching went away. I am not eating any gluten on purpose. I have checked and rechecked medication, soap, shampoo, etc. I know somehow I'm getting CC. My son doesn't help working in 2 pizza places. I have asked him to change, shower, take the clothes downstairs. I make him wash his work clothes. I did catch him plunk down at the computer coming in from work. So that could have got me. I now have to clean the computer, desk, etc. to go online. Now I'm getting the symptoms that were really the beginning of all of this. I think it is a yeast infection and take diflocan. It really feels like I have itchy blisters. My question is can a little gluten do this? I have had some itchy red bumps show up on my arms and legs also.

I also have this problem. I have just started to go to a doctor and we are going to set up an appt. for a biopsy near the rash. This will be a sure test for celiac I am told. Lots of things set it off such as iodine (salty foods) and also in my case too much sugar. I have found using a all cotton tampon with all natural ingrediants has helped with the yeast infections and believe it or not but toilet paper also has gluten in it. I switched to 7th generation or this with good results. Nice to know I am not alone in this department. I also had to get a perscription cream for the rash on my vagina which I don't need as much now since doing the above. Hope this helps you. Sistergoldenhair

I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. I can only use one kind of toilet paper or I am miserable. It sure can be frustrating. If I have to break out in a rash from it, I wish it would find a place that wouldn't be so bad for a biopsy. I've had 2 in the female area and don't think I want to do that again. Let me know how your biopsy goes. Wendy

Do you use panty liners or scented products in that area? I find I break out when I use a panty liner or pad. Gluten took away my periods but I would use them for continence issues when I was first diagnosed and noticed I broke out after using them. Using unscented products has helped a bit.

I finally traced my remaining breakouts to advil, iodized salt and products with malto-dextrin in them. (which I think is corn, but nonetheless, it caused breakouts) Hope you get it figured out, the itching is miserable. The last yeast/bladder infection I had I really think was caused by eating too many salty nuts!

I don't use the panty liners, etc. I have MRKH (no uterus) so I've never even had a period. I wear cotton underwear, use unscented soap. The rash kind of reminds me of years ago after an Aveno Bath. I was doing fine with Bath & Body Works White Rice & Shea Butter body wash. I'm out of it and tried the Mandarin Orange. Decided that could be the problem and bought a Soft Soap Nutra Oil Body Wash. I'm thinking my body doesnt' like that either. I can't drink orange juice so that may be why the Mandarin Orange reacted. The itching is not near as bad as a year ago. But the rash looks yucky. I just seem a little bit off and can't pinpoint it. I did recently get put on a steroid inhaler. Not sure that could be a problem. I've not been taking Advil, but never had a problem with it. Thank you for all your help.
