Does It Have To Be An Extreme Rash?

Recommended Posts

Guest pear_fairy

I have only been diagnosed as IBS so far and that was by a regular doc. Recently been seeing more and more of my symptoms taking after Crohn's or Celiac. I have gotten rashes all my life that docs always dismissed as contact dermatitis an allergic reaction etc.. The most common rashes I get are on hands and look like a bunch of clear tiny bubbles mostly on index finger but have gotten over complete palms before. Swolling and itching occurs! Most recently though I have gotten some on my forearms. They started out looking like just a couple bug bites then got white heads on them. They itch on and off. I am slowly getting several more. The only pics i have found of DH online looked quite extreme. So was wondering if anyone gets this and it varies on itching and or appearance?

I have other symptoms (no periods unless on the pill, stomach issues of course, been vomiting on and off for last couple of months this month has been three days already though and not in a row, prickling sensations in skin on legs on occasion, was haivng some anxiety and depression a few months back etc...).

Thanks for any input. I have pics also if anyone wants to see.

My Mom & I both get the same thing you descibe, so I wonder the same thing. We have always called them "hives" but I think actual hives are bigger, these are small and very itchy! I also get rashes frequently, or I used to, that has gotten much better since starting digestive enzymes and I hope now that I am gluten free, they are going to stay gone. :D

Thanks for the reply Lisa. Thank goodness it has been colder out (live on a tropical island right now) as I had one on upper arm that looked like a zit it was awful and husband teased me about it but now have them on my wrists. Most are tiny and can barely see them but there are a couple that have the bug bite appearnace. I also noticed they flatten out at times then others they are puffed out with or without the "head" on them ewww. It makes me so paranoid and been looking at every rash imaginable online to "diagnose" myself ha ha! We have to go to military docs and they aren't the best of the bucket for sure! Moving to England in a month so will be happy to go to real docs and from what I have gathered they are very intune with the digestive diseases.

    I am not sure what you mean by "The Nima device has many issues" as the device very accurately measures whatever you put into it. The issue is not the device, but perhaps the possibility that some of the food you didn't put into the test has...
    Also, the same logic people use against using enzymes could be applied to the Nima device. The Nima device has many issues and you are still possibly being exposed to gluten. Like enyzmes, the Nima device doesn't replace properly implementing...
    Personallyu Well, actually there are plenty of studies showing the ingredients in GliadinX in fact does break down gluten by 50-85% before it reaches the small intestine. I believe the reason Scott recommends using it when you are ...
