  1. I'm having this experience at the moment, annoyingly. I've been gluten free for a few years after stomach problems and I think I was doing pretty well. However, I'm on a 6-month student exchange now in Asia where it's next to impossible to avoid cross-contamination. Because of this, I've been a bit casual about the whole thing. There's not much else to do really. Sadly, this has made me break out in itchy rashes on my hands, elbows, back, and legs. I didn't realise I could suddenly get DH. I'm too far away from my doctor to get an official opinion (he's a bit rubbish anyway), but the symptoms seem to match perfectly. Also, being in Asia means rice every day usually twice a day, so maybe the iodine thing is kicking in too? Home in two weeks where I can cook for myself, but until then I'm just hammering on cream and taking antihistamines. Not sure what else to do really. This forum's been amazingly helpful, by the way. For a long time, before it spread, I assumed it was bug bites! So, thanks!
  2. Celiac With Itchy Legs - No Rash

    I've had this exact same thing. I'm fine in the day, then I try to go to sleep and BAM! Itchy legs! No spots, no dryness, no nothing. Drives me mental. Had no idea it might be a gluten-smashing thing! I assumed it was bugs or something or something in awful university flats.
