Celiac And Cellulitis

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagonsed with celiac over 24 years ago but recently having issues. One being I was diagnosed with cellulitis, a skin infection that could be caused by a low immune system. Has anyone else had such issues. This cellulitis has made me very ill with high fever and flu like symptoms and one terrible sore on my leg. I am trying to figure out where I might have picked this up!! Thanks for any help!

Yes, I had cellulitis 8 or 9 years ago. I never did figure out the source of the infection. There was no wound evident. This was before my celiac disease dx. Had a dickens of a time getting rid of it. Dr. put me on appropriate oral antibiotics that did not do the job. As soon as he switiched me to IM shots it made a dramatic difference. He was stumped in that the orals should have worked. But in retrospect I believe the problem was poor absorption of the oral antibiotic due to my celiac disease.
