  2. My Itchy Sking

    for a little back ground info...this itchy skin started in full force Jan / Feb by mid Feb I headed to the dr as it was not going away.. since we live out in the country and go hiking I thought well its something i got into...by the time i went to the dr i was in tears it hurt/burned This is the 1st misdiagnoses... treated with a steriod shot and then a pack for a week... oh what joy no rash no itching... i was in heaven... fast forward to my 2 week follow up... went in again in tears its was back and was worse.... the good dr said you have a food allergy... we need to find a allergist for you... ok .... in the mean time here is another steriod pack rx.. and a strong anti histimne Rx... filled only one and it was not the steriod pack.... here is where i started my research... with a simple google... of what food cause rashes... so i dropped out peanuts no change, then i found a picture of a wheat rash.... oh this looks like my back, stomach, butt, so gluten free i started got an appt with the allergist( should have called a skin dr) oh well we all learn.. any ways he looked at it ... and i told him i had started a gluten free diet and was seeing improvement... put me on allerga and zyrtec combo... helped calm the skin down... did a food diary, added peanuts ,,, then the last day of the diary i added gluten foods....NEVER AGAIN WILL I DO THAT WILLINGLY.......... so now im just waiting for the itchy skin to clear up which it is slowly the photos above are about 75%better than were i started from i have been gluten free since mid march

  5. Photos Of Mild Dh

    I have always had back bumps...(pimples) and under the bra line rash( thought it was heat rash) thighs chalked it up to many things ingrown hairs ect.... but now i must say i the only way to describe the warning that a break out is coming is a burning like being sunburnt and having a jellyfish tossed on your skin....
  6. Photos Of Mild Dh

    Thank you for posting this... I wish that I would have taken photos when my rash was at its worst... at first i was told i had shingles... then after taking a course of steriods...it came back with a vengence... dr said its a food allergy.. before i made it to a allergy dr i found some photos of wheat rash...(DH) and it looked like what i had went gluten free... started clearing up... so now while the dr's may not agree with me i know the only way to keep the itchy skin away is staying gluten free
