Strange Symptom

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I haven't been on for a very long time, but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. My 14 year old son was diagnosed a year and a half ago. My other two kids are going through the testing, and will both be scoped in March. Here's the scoop: my son has complained of a sore, itchy bum (anus) since I can remember; probably starting when he was about 3 or 4. I had, of course, mentioned it to doctors on many occasions as it would make him very wiggly at times. None of the doctors noticed anything out of the ordinary. Anyhow, after being gluten free, the problem went away, and if he is glutened (he is very nearly asymptomatic), that is the one thing he notices right away. Is that bizarre? Now, my three year old (she was off gluten for a year, then back on it for the scope in March), within a month or two of being back on gluten, is complaining of a sore bum too. Everything looks normal, not red or irritated, but she cries sometimes and says her bum is "hot" or cries that "it hurts" when I wipe her after a bm. Any time I have searched (with a variety of key words and celiac) on the net, I get absolutely nothing back that relates. Soooo, does anyone know if this is a common, or perhaps not so common symptom???

Could it be related to constipation or larger, hard stool (which is a symptom of celiac)? It could be that the stool is irritating them. As for a itchy bum, I haven't heard of that symptom, but I would not be at all surprised if it goes away when gluten-free. It seems like nearly everything can be a celiac symptom.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

I have wondered that too. I know hemroids can itch, but I don't have them. The itching did go away when I went gluten free. If I have been glutened by accident sometimes it feels like everything coming out of me itches. I wonder if it could be DH up there maybe?

My daughter gets D when she is glutened, and nearly always gets a hemerhoid (SP). She then stands there wiggling all day till the gluten is out of her body. A bath does help soothe her, but not enough. So, what i am saying is that Hemerhoids don't only come from constipation, but also from D
