How long have you been gluten free? Have you been 100% gluten free even with things like lipsticks and other makeups, shampoos, lotions, soaps, and everything like that? It sounds like something may be slipping in some how. How long have you had the rash? Is it itchy or sore or anything? The rash you are talking about sounds like DH possibly. Check that section on here to see if that fits you.

Yeah, the rash should go away after following a gluten-free diet for awhile. Until the rash clears up, maybe try girl boxer shorts or thongs.

Actually, it sounds like it could be a latex allergy. You may want to talk to your doctor about that, as it can become serious. Does this happen if you wear, for instance, panties which have fabric entirely sewn around the elastic?

Yeah I require cotton panties with the latex covered or I get a reaction. Alot of people have issues with latex. Amazingly not everything is gluten. lol

If hose and girdles are a problem also, you may get a reaction triggered from the heat being held in. That is a real problem for me. I have to have 100% cotton underclothing or the entire area covered gets a build-up of heat and triggers a DH oubreak. It does not seem to be as much of a problem on my lower legs, so I wear longer skirts and use thigh high or knee high hose during the summer and knee high socks or leggings during the winter.

I have DH, but I also have a latex allergy and apparently an allergy to certain dyes.

I get that same thing, a rash around the leg line and the waistline, as well as around my ribs where my bra goes. I get undergarments that have the elastic wrapped in cotton and they all have to be white. I found some "boy short" type underwear at JC Penney that I really like, all the elastic is covered and they are just plain white. No problems so far.

Also make sure that your detergent and fabric softener are dye and fragrance free, that really bothers my skin too.

Victoria's secret and I think a lot of the less expensive companies now sell all cotton "boy shorts" for girls in nice colors too. Do you know for sure the rash is DH or could it be something else? I'd see a dermatologist and see if they can figure that part out.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
