  1. Hello! I am a new mom of a 7 month old baby. At the age of 6 months I began to feed my daughter vegetable based foods and also cereal with wheat, she developed two small dots on her face (one near chin, the other on her cheek.) I thought it was just baby acne since she had had it before.. Little did i know this "acne" would spread. Within a weekend of being on vacation and having limited access to her vegetable based food, I opted to feeding her mostly the cereal. My mistake. The two dots began getting larger and spreading to her cheeks. I began to research to try and find a skin condition that matched hers, the closes thing was Celiac Disease and DH Dermatitis Herpetiformis. I could see the areas being affected were on the back of her neck, cheeks, arms and elbows, and her ankles. It became blistery obviously itchy and uncomfortable. My husband did a DNA test that showed that he carries the genetic trait for Celiac Disease, so I have no doubt thats what it is. I stopped the cereal within immediate realization that she could have a gluten intolerance. Which I suppose I shouldn't have done because thats the only way to find out if they are indeed intolerant. Within a few days of gluten being withheld from her diet her face began to clear up again, but still from time to time will flair back up. (its only been about two weeks.) Is there a chance gluten is still in her system?? I also am breastfeeding, which I have read different things about it passing through the milk. As of now I am trying to keep my gluten intake level at a 0. Is there anyone who knows more information about Celiac in infants and how long a rash will last? or where I can find information for my sweet baby girl? Thank you in advance <3
