  1. Good points, Ennis! And I might point out that this matter of gross amounts of loose flour lying and blowing around in Costco stores does not seem to happen much, if at all, with the bags of flour in grocery stores --- at least I have never noticed it like I have at Costco.
  2. Awol, You know, I have been noticing in both of my local Costcos over the past year+ that in the aisle and area where they keep the big (25 lb) bags of flour, there is ALWAYS a significant amount of loose flour on the floor, and over the bags, and pretty much on everything else in the area as...
  3. Thanks for that information on your celiac disease symptoms, AppEng. I take particular note of your observation that it takes 2 or 3 days before you see skin rash or skin symptoms from a glutening, and 5 days to peak rash. I've never (to this point) been able to identify any given DH outbreak of...
  4. I've heard of cold-induced urticaria, but thank God I have never experience THAT particular skin misery! But you should have seen my near-constant summertime poison ivy rashes when I lived in Michgan .... Yeah, it was odd, the aquagenic urticaria thing started around the time I turned 17, and...
  5. That excellent thought only came to me AFTER I had arrived home! But had it occurred to me while en route, oh yes, screw public decency, I WOULD have pulled over and stripped naked, absolutely, no question!
  6. Thanks for your response, ApEng. Can you remind me again, how long have you been on the gluten-free diet? I'm just curious to know how long it's been, since you are apparently still having adverse reactions to high iodine intake. Do you feel that those iodine-related skin reactions are 'tapering...
  7. Thank you Amber! I will do my best to keep the board informed of my progress, not because I am that important or special in any way, but simply as potentially useful information for the many others who read those posts even if they do not make their own, or for those who might read these threads...
  8. Ravenwood, that is a very good point you bring up, and it is for precisely that reason why I asked my original questions. What you describe is basically exactly what I have been experiencing over the past few months --- repeated small and usually individual pustules/bumps, rather than the wholesale...
  9. Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation. However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to...
  10. Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious. I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease...
  11. You can say that again! Part of my disdain for doctors, and the medical (I refuse to say "health care") industry more generally, is due to having suffered (and had repeatedly been misdiagnosed, if not treated by doctors with complete disbelief and contempt) in my later teens and early 20s from...
  12. Orangesandmelons, I have had those also! Always on my palms, or on the edges of my palms, or occasionally on the inside of a finger. Not many times, and not many at one time (often just a single blister), but while they are itchy, they are distinctly different from DH --- for one thing, mine never...
  13. Hello All, I have a question (don't I always?) for those with dermatitis herpetiformis who have longtime experience with the gluten-free diet. How can you tell --- or CAN you tell at all --- between having a stray reaction to gluten vs. having a reaction due to having consumed a high (or...
  14. Hello All, I wanted to share with you some information that I have learned about my nutrition while on the Fasano Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet (https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40) for alleviation of my dermatitis herpetiformis. Because I...
  15. Interesting about your husband's experience in the hospital, CyclingLady. The one thing that I REALLY do not understand, from reading so many posts of many other people both here and elsewhere on the internet, is this apparent almost criminal indifference, kneejerk denial and/or outright hostility...
