Bumps (papular Urticaria)...are They Related?

Recommended Posts

I originally found out I had issues with wheat last Spring due to a skin test. Was never able to take the test for celiac due to being gluten-free. I do know that my symptoms included headaches, abdominal pains, eczema, mouth ulcers and depression.

Las week, I started breaking out with little bumps in various places on my body. Some where painful. They were biopsied and the derma said it was papular Urticaria-- the nurse said it was possibly due to a bug bite.

Knowing my history with wheat-- not to mention the fact that it is cold and rainy and we haven't been outdoors for awhile-- made me start to Google.

Sure enough...I found sites that said this can be caused by a food allergy.

Except..I'm gluten free. I have also been having troubles with recurring eczema patches (arms, neck and even my eyelids) while being gluten-free.

Could both of these combined be an indicator that I've managed to get yet another allergy??? Anyone experience these urticarias?

I had them on my upper arms for ages - since I was a kid until a couple years ago. Never really bothered me except for itching a bit now and then and looking annoying. Turned out, as soon as I got them a bit more exposure to the sun (moderate, not sunburns or even really much in the way of tanning), they went away.
