Hi, I post here all the time, and I am newly dx'ed with celiac disease and a dairy allergy and I have since cut these foods from my diet. I have been off gluten for over a week, almost four days free of dairy. I already struggled with itchy, flakey and very sore scalp before I found out I had food issues. Well now that I have been gluten free, I have been getting itchy sores all over my scalp, and they kind of ooze some, and I also have been getting the sores on my arms, the inside of my fingers and on my neck, more the back and side part namely. Has this ever happened to anyone before after newly cutting out gluten or dairy? I have no idea if this is dh or not, but it seems strange that it seems to have gotten worse since cutting out the trigger foods. Any guesses on what is going on? Oh please not another allergy!! Lol

If its itchier than normal in your scalp and you have those spots, to me that screams that its healing. I have a very bad habit of digging my scalp raw when i'm stressed (i don't realize i'm doing it until i have a patch already done :( ) and when its in its healing stage, oh does it ever itch!

The rest of the body, however, sounds like DH to me.

It's possible that it's dh but not being caused by going gluten-free --- instead it may have been going to present itself anyway but you got dx'd before it did. If it's dh then it can continue to present off & on for a couple years possibly. You see, with dh, the antibodies stay in the skin & it takes time for them to dissipate. Going gluten-free is not a magic bullet as far as dh is concerned. It's sort of like having no brakes on a car & you have to let it coast to a stop. But I will also say that there are many skin rashes that people with celiac disease are prone to. You've gone gluten-free --- that's all you can do. Just be extremely vigilant not to get cc'd. If it is dh; dh is sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten.

I wanted to let you guys know that I took some benadryl later that evening and the sores stopped. The itching also stopped, so I was allergic to something, I don't know what.. But I really appreciate all of your replies and answers!

    • Yeah I can not drink but as a chef the culinary uses for liquors, wines, and beer/ciders is amazing. Yeah I was thinking the same thing with the orange one using it in wither crock pot a bunch of chicken breast in, marinade them in prior to cooking is another thought. The apple one, I was thinking of doing a roast in it. you know how some people crock pot a roast in dr. pepper, root beer, or actual beer? I was thinking of doing a shoulder roast, or a boston butt in austin apple cider with some bacon and a bit of maplehoney in the pot along with half a sweet onion in there. Cook it say 8 hours, then drain it out and shred it then serve up with some sauce or plain depending on finished flavor. Thinking this would be nice to serve up with my bread for sandwiches, by itself, or perhaps over some chips. I also have this idea of using it to make a turkey or ham gravy, 8oz, simmer it down with trimmings and drippings from the holiday turkey/ham, the onion we cook in the pan with it chopped, 3 chopped roma tomatoes,  bay leaf, stir it with a rosemary twig, crush it all up with the back of the ladle,  then strain it out and pour in a gravy bowl with some chopped toasted walnuts in the bottom to be served with the dressing, and potatoes at new years for the family....Basing this on what I did last year with a dry sherry, but replacing it with the cider.
    • Austin's  are good ciders!   I have good luck using regular ( non- alcoholic) cider, especially for pork  roasts and pork chops!   but they do leave a bit of an Apple taste.  I think Austins has a dry cider?  That is less sweet, more beer- like.   They also have an interesting orange flavored one.  Might be good for chicken dishes.  The pineapple didn't taste very pineapples to me.
    • No milk in my diet. I don’t consume the major allergens. 
    • Thanks for the info. Great for folks that don't have a local source.  I found a place to get a good deal on both the big bag of jelly beans and licorice at my local Tractor Supply for 3 bucks each. Right now I am eating a 16 oz bag of their Bumble Beans that I got a Big Lots for $1.50. Those and Dark Chocolate baking chips are my worst food addictions.
    • Used some nice hard cider for a sub in beer can chicken last month for a cookout I was doing. I have been debating using it in place of beer in some marinades, baked goods, or roast that are cooked in a beer. I hear good reviews on them and I keep thinking the ciders might work I know I hear of people using AceCiders but I have not seen them. I used the following ones so far and only the apple. https://austineastciders.com/
