I will keep an eye out, but I am pretty convinced at this point, based on several factors, that it was nickel all along. And we are always checking on his colitis. :)

However, a question -- if it was DH....would the rash resolve itself even though I never stopped eating gluten (I am referring to the first few times I got the rash, lat year

and prior, not this time when eliminating gluten was an additional factor)? In other words, if it was DH the first few times, but I never limited my gluten intake back then, would it have made sense for the rash to go away like it did, multiple times, or should I have had it all along, non-stop, until gluten was removed?

Thank you.

DH can spontaneously appear, disappear while ingesting gluten. Don't know if it happens like that if you are off gluten. I hope not for my sake.

I had DH for most of my life and it would at times go away and than come back. Late in the disease process it was there all the time.

After the initial healing when you go gluten free usually it only appears when glutened or, especially early on, when injesting iodine.

I know DH can look somewhat different in different people, but that looks nothing like mine did. I don't have photos, though.

I am not yet diagnosed with celiac. Waiting to do the anti-body blood test and currently adding gluten back in after 6-1/2 weeks away from it. I am hoping to avoid a false negative on the blood work for anti-bodies. Not sure how long I need to stay on it before getting the labs done. ANYWAY....I have been allergic to nickel since I was 8 years old and can only wear nickel free jewelry. In my 20's I had a strange deep itchy rash on my hands (front and back), went to the dermatologist and he was suspicious of a systemic nickel allergy. He had me go on an Elimination Diet for nickel. What a surprise that it was in food too! He gave me a list of foods with their varying nickel contents. He gave me a cream to use to clear up my hands and asked me to go on the nickel free diet for 2 months. It worked. At the time everything I was eating in an effort to eat healthfully also seemed to be loaded with nickel. I now know what I can get away with eating based on the skin reaction I have. BTW the less refined the grains were that I ate, the worse the rash seemed to be. Best of luck to you!

your rash looks like the one I used to get (except mine was never itchy)every spring-April-May (I thought it was from sudden increased sun exposure) before I went gluten free a year ago. The only time I got that rash this summer.... late June, after weeks of plenty of sun exposure.... yep, I glutened myself!!

The rash I had on my hands pretty much year round... in the last couple weeks I have been paying attention to my iodine intake, and that rash has cleared up!

    • There has been a recent recall of veggies because of listeria risk. Here is the FDA list of recalled items in the US and Canada https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm581389.htm
    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊
