  1. Hello! First post The doctors here in Ontario don't know exactly what they are doing when it comes to Celiac. I was tested for wheat allergies which they thought was what I had for sure and they came out negative. Then my doctor said that everyone is a little bit allergic to wheat anyway... so just don't eat it.... then I said well what about the itching? and he shrugged and said I'd have to pay for the Celiac test. I can't afford the test for Celiac right now as it's 150. canadian. I know there is another one you can do at home but that is also 60. in my area. So for years I've been using creams and antifungal pills to combat candida/yeast infections which give me an all over itch and especially in the groin area. Sometimes it does help for a couple of days but then I'm right back where I was. I recently found out that just using dry skin cream does the same for a few hours. So the itiching in the groin area is my main question.... does Candida effect others this way? I've also had bad constipation/diah probs for most of my life. They do seem to get better when I stay with a gluten free diet too. TY!
