  1. i'm curious-what is a geographic tongue? Can you see maps on it? lol. Seriously though, curious what that is. Also it sounds like you should get tested for sure. Or eliminate gluten for a month to see how you feel?
  2. Treatment With Prescribed Gel?

    Alot of makeup has gluten in it. Could be making it worse. Most topical things I've tried help with the itch, but only briefly and they don't help the rash go away at all.
  3. I don't know. From what I've read here, Iodine can trigger it. So that could be it as well.
  4. Could This Be Dh?

    Dang...you should try to find a dermatologist that can get you in today. That's a pretty bad flare up. It looks like mine have in the past. I have an appt this afternoon with a derm.
  5. Pictures Of Mine

    Tested negative for the Celiac Panel, but I expected that. The line work in my tattoo swells up and I assume that's because it's already damaged skin - I've had it for 6 years though. That's the most annoying part. I'm experimenting with gluten free for a month to see if it improves. It's been almost a week and It was getting better, but it seems to flare up with everything I eat. I'm sick and tired of the itching and burning and doctors who tell me "it's something" but we don't know what. So needless to say I haven't been diagnosed. What are your thoughts from looking at this picture? http://i216.photobuc...207D4A946CE.jpg http://i216.photobuc...207D98BE6F4.jpg
  6. Type Of Doctor

    I have been reading on a lot on here and learning. Thank you.
  7. Type Of Doctor

    I guess I have a good primary care pyscian. I told him I thought it was gluten and he agreed. So we did the celiac panel. I'll know the results in a day or two. He also referred to me an allergist if we need to go that route. He gave me a cortisone shot as well. Not really sure what that is gonna do, but we'll see!!
  8. Type Of Doctor

    I have been seeing my family doctor about my rashes for the last few months. All he has told me so far is it's a food allergy and he gave me the DexPak -13 day dose which helped. But of course the intense rash came back right after I stopped taking it. From the pictures I've seen all over the internet and on here, and the descriptions, I am convinced I am having a reaction to gluten. Is the DH test something any doctor can do, or do I need to see a specialist? I don't want to waste my time tomorrow if he's just going to send me to another doctor. My insurance also does not pay for allergy testing - but I take that as the usual skin prick tests, and not a blood test. Is this correct?
