  1. Thank you all so much for the suggestions and tips! It so nice to have such a wonderful place to turn to for advice!
  2. I'm mom of a newly diagnosed Celiac teen. She has always has an "itchy rash" in her "elbow pits" as we call them since she was little. It comes and goes. She was diagnosed ~1 month ago after being in extreme abdominal pain with nasuea, BAD gas, and diarrhea for ~2 months. She also suffers from depression/anxiety/panic attacks. Obviously this whole ordeal has been quite stressful. A week or so ago, she was glutinated and also in extreme stress about school. An itchy/burning rash popped up again in the elbow pits and down the front of her arms to her hands and also both knees. I have compared it to pictures of DH and it's pretty much a match. My questions are: 1. Does stress and/or gluten cause flare ups? 2. What do you use to calm the itching/burning? After trying cetaphil, cortisone cream and oral benadryl; she found some SolarCane and it finally gave some relief. The bumps went away in about 24ish hours, but the itchy/burning feel lasted 3-4 days. Thanks!
  3. I'm the mom of a newly diagnosed celiac 16 yr old daughter. She was diagnosed about a month ago, and since the "shock" has worn off, we are getting pretty good at the gluten-free diet. (We= me and her, I've gone gluten-free with her) We are doing pretty good finding gluten-free foods, but are struggling with pasta and burger/hot dog buns! Udi's are good, but seem more like a chibatti (?) roll. When we ate at Red Robin, I literally asked where they got the burger buns from (Cisco, by the way) Pasta-wise we have tried one brand (sorry can't remember the name) and it was not pleasant. Any recommendations? Oh, and tricks on how to make bread/buns "less dry"? Thanks!!
