Does It Have To Be An Extreme Rash?

3 posts in this topic

I have only been diagnosed as IBS so far and that was by a regular doc. Recently been seeing more and more of my symptoms taking after Crohn's or Celiac. I have gotten rashes all my life that docs always dismissed as contact dermatitis an allergic reaction etc.. The most common rashes I get are on hands and look like a bunch of clear tiny bubbles mostly on index finger but have gotten over complete palms before. Swolling and itching occurs! Most recently though I have gotten some on my forearms. They started out looking like just a couple bug bites then got white heads on them. They itch on and off. I am slowly getting several more. The only pics i have found of DH online looked quite extreme. So was wondering if anyone gets this and it varies on itching and or appearance?

I have other symptoms (no periods unless on the pill, stomach issues of course, been vomiting on and off for last couple of months this month has been three days already though and not in a row, prickling sensations in skin on legs on occasion, was haivng some anxiety and depression a few months back etc...).

Thanks for any input. I have pics also if anyone wants to see.

My Mom & I both get the same thing you descibe, so I wonder the same thing. We have always called them "hives" but I think actual hives are bigger, these are small and very itchy! I also get rashes frequently, or I used to, that has gotten much better since starting digestive enzymes and I hope now that I am gluten free, they are going to stay gone. :D

Thanks for the reply Lisa. Thank goodness it has been colder out (live on a tropical island right now) as I had one on upper arm that looked like a zit it was awful and husband teased me about it but now have them on my wrists. Most are tiny and can barely see them but there are a couple that have the bug bite appearnace. I also noticed they flatten out at times then others they are puffed out with or without the "head" on them ewww. It makes me so paranoid and been looking at every rash imaginable online to "diagnose" myself ha ha! We have to go to military docs and they aren't the best of the bucket for sure! Moving to England in a month so will be happy to go to real docs and from what I have gathered they are very intune with the digestive diseases.

    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
    • Great Image JMG.   Thanks for the feedback. I think I feel that the decision to push for further tests, and not shrug it off is the direction I want to go. And I think I may try the diet post-endoscopy, and see if I respond (particularly if my thyroid responds to the diet).  Thank you All!
