  1. Hi all, My 4 yo son has suffered w/ severe/chronic constipation for over a year. We are working on "bowel training" now w/ a ped. gastro dr., using mirawax (not sure if spelled right) as a stool softener/laxative, etc. He also has a history of different weird outbreaks of dermatitis, which have neveer been actually dx'd as anything other than atopic derm. Anyway, he woke up this morning w/ an extremely itchy rash, mostly huge patch of red w/ blisters/bumps behind his knee, under his armpit, and various blisters/bumps over his torso, back, legs, and chest. He also complained last night before bed of his stomach hurting badly, but it seemed to go away after about 1/2 an hour. To shorten the story, he had a sitter last night and had eaten a plateful of Doritos, something he's had before, butnever in such a large amount. Considering his history, does this sound like something that could be celiac disease? I was searching for info on the rash, and when I saw info about DH and celiac disease, started seeing some possibly connections. We are supposed to go back to the ped. gastro. in two weeks (re: the constipation), but should I call and mention this to him, or just go ahead and see our ped. tomorrow? Thanks for your input in advance, Lori, l4grem@aol.com
