Why Is Everyone Itching?

Recommended Posts

I know not everyone gets a Epi pen but due to the nature of mine I have to have one in case a reaction starts in my airway,but when I'm itching or burning or getting edema or all three I just use Benadryl Allergy Liqui Gels no matter how careful you are your going to be exposed to gluten and wheat and dairy I refuse to suffer

I have a severe intolerance to gluten I'll get 10-40 welts ranging in size from dimes to double hand sized anywhere and everywhere and of course they itch,now my legs they will burn and itch and sometimes swell up 2 to 3 times there normal size I can get this just by holding bread lol never tried just looking at a slice but it wouldn't surprise me if I broke out.

Since my sister has Crohn's I get tested for that and they routinely tested me for Celiac as well so luckily I got diagnosed relatively early,that was about 4 years ago and it's also good to be tested for Crohn's as it's much more common in Celiac sufferers.

Everyone should be acutely aware that DH can cause swelling anywhere,including your airway.

I didn't know that DH responded well to benedryl. That is awesome! I use benedryl caps for swelling and itching I get from salicylic acid exposure and it definitely helps with that.

this is my first time bein at this site! what an eye opener! I was just tested yesterday for ciliac!! Welts & rashes (sometimes 2 or 3 diff.types of rashes) would come & my docs would not be able to fit the puzle pieces togetber! Reading your posts have practically solved my case! lol. I WON'T NEED CONFIRMATION from blood test to know for sure it' s ciliac! Wow! Happy, happy to figure out the rashes! thanks "itching". Sorry we have to endure this tho!

Swelling of airways and numerous large welts is not DH or celiac. That sounds like an allergic reaction.

The two conditions can go together (allergies and celiac), but Richard is right. I figured out I have a reaction to salicylic acid for instance which can cause itching etc. for certain.
