Not Dh, But What Is This? (With Picture)

After weeks of being very careful I left down my guard and accidentally ingested wheat - I swelled immediately (5 lbs in weight, most of which disappeared after 30 hours), and my upper thighs are once again covered in small red spots (both legs), extremely itchy at first. They have been there for almost a week even if they don't really itch that much anymore. But this time I also got them on my forearms. They are tiny, very red, and raised, like pinheads. I used to get them all the time before going gluten-free, and they took about a week to vanish.

Can anyone help me understand what this might be? To the best of my observation, it only appears when I eat regular bread etc, but now it is coming out also with accidental ingestion.

Hi Butterfly, have you considered Keratosis Pilaris?

Not until you mentioned it! It does look a bit like KP, even if my red spots are very much far from each other, and they appear in areas of my body which are totally hairless :P (genetically unhairy woman typing).

However, it does not behave like it: it only comes up when I get "glutened" and vanishes after a week/ten days of strict gluten-free diet. Could it be some kind of allergy/intolerance reaction?

Thank you all! I mentioned them to my dermatologist last night. He concluded that it must be a reaction probably to wheat, because it only appears after consuming/touching wheat, and told me I should live "as if" I had celiac disease, even if the blood work is negative, because it could still be NCGS. I hope the edema it is associated with wheat exposure is going to disappear soon, because it is quite painful, especially on my legs...

    • D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.
    • I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad.  I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought.  There are a lot of foods I can eat.  When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad.  At home, whatever I prepare is gluten free.  A friend of mine who had breast cancer a few years back, contracted Parkinson's last year and the. Found out her cancer is back.  It really put this in perspective for me.  I don't have to take pills and deal with side effects, I don't have cancer.  I have to watch my food intake.  I can do it.
    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
