Recurring Boils?

I have no idea if this is possibly celiac disease/DH related, but I get boils all the freaking time. Right now I have 4. I know that it's possibly related to my DH because I do tend to get secondary infections, but they generally aren't in places where I have DH (under my arms for example).

It just seems a little odd that I never had one in my life until 2 years ago when my DH started and my celiac disease symptoms started getting worse.

I've been on truckloads of antibiotics, I've tried the neosporin in the nose thing, I've tried tea tree oil washes and nothing works.

Any advice?

I don't know if it is related to celiac disease or not, but I have had periods of boils before, as have 2 of my children and my husband. I don't know why it happens. The doctor keeps telling me that the bacteria is naturally found on everybodys skin and sometimes it just happens.

Last November I had gone to the ER and came away with a staph infection at the shot site (they had given me demerol) and by December I had one of the worst boils I have ever had. Since the doctor was smart enough to biopsy and run the labs on the puss, we were able to find out about the staph and I had to take 3 different kinds of antibiotics to get rid of it. For months after that I was getting lots of boils. I was so happy when they finally went away. I had a run of boils about 5 years ago in both armpits, too. It always seems to happen right before I go on vacation and end up on antibiotics when we are traveling!

My daughter got some bad ones for a while on her bottom when she was potty training and constantly taking her diaper off. The doctor thought that she was getting cracks in the skin from playing on the floor and that was allowing the bacteria in.

My middle boy has gotten some minor ones, that go away on there own, but my husband used to get them all the time as a child in the Philippines and has scars all over his body from it. He does not have celiac disease. He still gets some occasionally.

I wish I could give you some advice on how to get rid of them, but other than making sure you don't spread them (don't share towels, and wash everything that comes in contact with the boils in hot water, wash your hands constantly, etc...) there isn't much to say. I do sympathise with your pain. I hope you feel better soon.

God bless,

Mariann

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
