Reoccurring Rash On Bottom

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Since my grown daughter and others I know with celiac disease get rashes in different places on their bodies, I'm guessing mine has decided to show up on my bottom. I have been checked for everything else I can come up with. Does anyone know if a rash on the bottom can be from skin irritations associated with celiac disease?

I get a rash on my bottom every time I get contaminated. And it takes about 2 to 3 weeks to go away, depending on how much gluten contamination that I ended up with.

As it tends to show up the day after a contamination, you may not realize that's what is happening. It takes a very tiny amount of gluten to bring out the rash.

Thank you....it's comforting somehow to know I'm not having some freak rash I should get paranoid about.

I've always been a very easy-going person who doesn't make a big deal out of things, and this has been my approach to avoiding gluten also, but as I age (turning 50 in April) and have been away from gluten longer (since I was about 32) it seems like I have to be increasingly careful to avoid every bit of the stuff or I regret it somehow. My kids and a couple of young friends I know who have celiac disease can seem to get away with a little cheating now and then, but I can't anymore...it gets me gassy and bloated and now this rash, and often I have a full blown response complete with the trots from eating a questionable sauce or something trivial like that.....bummer....but I'm alive. One of my elderly friends died recently from starvation and dehydration when her doctor refused to say she had celiac disease, he called it irritable bowel syndrome and the home she was in would not provide her with a gluten-free diet because it was not prescribed by the doctor. Horrible to watch someone waste away and not be able to do something about it.

The medical profession doesn't like celiac disease because no drugs or surgery are prescribed...it's all about the money.

I too get a reoccurring rash on my bottom. I don't know if it is DH or not. It comes and goes and leaves scars. It started about 2 years ago. When I have pointed it out to doctors they want me to have it biopsied by a dermatologist, but like I said it comes and goes, so it is hard to get it biopsied when it is there. They have wondered if it is DH and so have I. It is really itchy. THis is the only place I get anything like this though.

I also have two patches on my rear,(one on each side) that were red and inflammed and itchy when I was eating gluten. I went off of it for about 6 weeks last spring and the redness got better. I went back on gluten for testing for about 3 months and the rash worsened. My tests came back positive for Celiac's and I've been off gluten for 3 months now. The redness is gone but the skin is kind of dry and scaley and still a little bit itchy. I showed it to my doctor and she agreed that if it is better when I am not eating gluten then it's most likely related. I also don't get rashes anywhere else on my body. From what I have read, DH usually is a rash with blisters. I may end up seeing a dermatologist just to satisfy my curiousity as to what it really is.

yes i have it on this place too...i know kinda weird, haha. but i guess this is common for dh.

does anyone get the rash in really strange places? i've gotten it on my ears (liken the edge of the cartiledge], eyebrows, scalp, sometimes the tops of my toes, and my nose. it's all dh but i think it's weird it shows up in these places...

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
