Welcome to what I think is Gluten Withdrawl symptoms. I have a few tiny spots of goofy rash. I am in my first 3 months of gluten withdrawl. These did not appear right away. Mine are mild and recovering quickly.

You might have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH), which is a skin ailment that only celiacs suffer from. While you're going gluten free, try to go iodine free, too. A lot of people need to ingest both gluten and iodine to break out in DH. Iodine can be found in iodized salt (you can buy non-iodized salt instead), seafood, asparagus, salty foods (french fries, chips, etc.), and sometimes dairy, depending on where you live.
