Skin Problems/gluten Intolerant

Hi all. I haven't been on here for a while but had a question about my skin. I was diagnosed celiac based on a biopsy. Then after a couple months the doctor sent the same biopsy off to another pathologist who said it wasn't positive. Needless to say, I'm much better going gluten free and with the unclear diagnosis, have remained gluten free. No more vomiting, no more nausea, much less stomach pains, etc.

Anyways, I had dinner at my son's house the other night. My DIL made a lovely dinner but I asked her to cook my pork without breadcrumbs. I wasn't aware she had cooked it in the same pan as the breaded meat until it was on my plate. Not wanting to be the nasty mother-in-law, I kept quiet and ate it. It was really delicious!

I was nauseaus that night and

the very next day I had these blistery things on my face. I haven't had these since giving up gluten. They're almost always around my mouth and last for a few days. Definitely not cold sores. I've suffered from them and know exactly how they feel and their appearance. After going back to my regular gluten free diet, the blisters went away....took about a week.

Have any of you had this problem?

This is comforting for me to read that you also have skin reaction to gluten. As for myself, my blood test was negative to celiac. However, when I go off (most) gluten and then reintroduce it to my diet, I also get reaction of the skin. Reddish blotches appear on my face , they are dry and a little itchy, not blistery or wet in any way.

This is a bit off topic but I will mention it. For many years (maybe 10+) occassionally after I am done with teeth brushing and propell that first big gob of spit into the sink, I would see just a hint of blood in it. I know it is not from my gums. When I told my GP about this she brushed it off and gave me some answer which did nothing to satisfy me. Well this last summer for almost a month I did not eat gluten (very small amounts) and no blood at all was in my spit. For the last while I have been pretty much pigging out on it (the usual diet prior to my being aware, the NA diet :S) and in my spit voila: The was a bit more than a bit of blood. I am assuming that it must be gluten related , due to the damage to my insides. I am just wondering if it is damage from my stomach or intestines?

Liya.

Oh my gosh me too. And they itch. They happen on the tops of my fingers, mostly on my pinky between the 2nd and 3rd knuckle, or on the top of my thumb in sort of the same place. Sometimes it swells up like a red welt with water blisters on the top. Like a raised coin on my finger. And I scratch and scratch ... I can't help it! Then I have dry peeling skin there for a week or two. I have to put Carmex on it to soothe it...lotion just doesn't help at all. The Naturopath was stumped when I showed her but lately I've been wondering...maybe it's gluten. The last one happened kind of close to the last gluten attack. I'll keep closer track of it related to my accidental glutening to see if it happens again. Gawd I hate accidental glutening. Why can't this be easier??

I really don't know if I'm an "official" Celiac because I don't want to eat gluten for 3 months to find out, but the more I read, the more I think there's really no doubt. I can't even eat a single crumb.
