  1. Yes, For 3 days I have been eliminating iodine
  2. Thanks Angie for the response. I think I need to look up more information on contamination and what foods to eat specificly on a gluten free diet. I have been buying stuff from bulk from store, like nuts. And I don't know for sure if they are contamintated or not. And things like corn tortillas that don't say gluten free. I'm fealing a bit overwhelmed with this. There is alot more to a gluten free diet than I originally thought.
  3. 2 years ago I started getting a rash on my hands which I thought was eczema. It gradually got a little worse over time, but just on my hands. I am 11 weeks pregnant and my rash has progressed to get worse. Last Thursday I seen a natropath and she said it looks to be a gluten rash and put me on a gluten and dairy free diet. Before I started diet I had this rash on my hands, lower arms, and a little on my thighs and one ear. Since I have gone gluten/dairy free it has spread up my arms, to other ear, both butt cheeks, stomach and face. I hear that most peoples symptoms are relieved right away. Could it be that I am getting cross contamination? I have two children and a husband who are eating a gluten diet. I really want to find out what I am allergic to, are there any allery/gluten tests that are accurate and appropriate with pregnancys? I am feeling overwhelmed that my rash is not getting any better and trying to think of what could be causing it. I have cut out iodine and nightshades from diet also. Any suggestions?? Thanks
  4. Thank you, we are really excited for our third! Thank you for your advice I found thyca to be really helpful. Hoping to get this skin rash under control.
  5. Hi- I am new to this forum. I am currently 10.5 weeks pregnant. I have had a rash on the back side of my hands for a couple years now. When I got pregnant the rash became increasingly worse. The last 2 weeks it has gone from being on the backs of my hands to both my ears, both thighs, around both knees, up my arms and both butt cheeks. Last Thursday I seen a naturopath and she is pretty sure that I have a gluten rash. She put me on a dairy and gluten free diet. Since I went on the diet my rash has spread and is more itchy. I did eat more tomatoes, sugar, and gluten free chips for the first three days on diet. I ommited tomatoes and salty store bought items from my diet and cut down on sugar.(it has been 2 days) My rash is still itchy and bothersome. If I am celiac and have dh how long will it take before I see any results of my rash getting better? Is it normal after quitting gluten for rash to get worse? Thanks, Tracie
