  1. My 7-year-old has been complaining of constant itchiness and a skin crawling sensation for the past five months, but has no external rash or symptoms. It seems to get worse at night, although that may be because it's more difficult to distract herself at bedtime. We've tried switching shampoos and detergents, tepid baking soda baths followed by gluten-free lotion, re-reading the labels on anything that comes in contact with her skin, having her re-tested for more food sensitivities, and even checking the house for mold and cleaning all the air ducts. Nothing has helped. Her pediatrician referred us to an allergist who had us try several different histamine blockers, but not even Benadryl brings relief, so it doesn't appear to be a histamine issue. Blood tests show that her kidneys, liver and thyroid are all functioning normally. Right now I'm trying having her go nitrate-free since that isn't included in food sensitivity tests, but so far no improvement. Now they want to refer her to a dermatologist, but the appointment is a month away and she is MISERABLE. I have no idea how to help her.
  2. I was diagnosed w/ celiacs a year and a half ago. I have so many symptoms possibly related to other autoimmune diseases and other possible medical issues. That it has been so hard for me to recognize that they are most likely related to my celiac's disease. 10 months ago I started having skin issues. First it was dry itchy skin. Figured related to my thyroid. They I started breaking out on my face. I thought "I have acne for the first time in my life?". They a small skin lession under my breast. I it was a burn scar from hot oil. 7 months ago my skin issues on my face started spreading and getting worse. My PCP diagnosed me with eczema. Treated me with hydrocortison. 4 months ago my skin issues got worse. Darkening of skin areas affected. Dry flaking skin. Very sore and itchy. 2 months ago my PCP gave me triamcinolone to treat eczema. Within 2 days my skin issues were gone. Only this cream is very strong and you can not use it for more than 7 days, or it will thin your skin. I stopped it after 7 days, and within 24 hours my rash that looked like acne started coming back. The next day I noticed my neck was hot and itchy. Looked it the mirror, and it was red and swollen. Looked like hives. Took a benedryl, and it went away. Yesterday, my PCP told me Dermatitis Herpetiformis, or Duhring's Disease might be causing this. This is caused by an abnormal immune system response to gluten. Diagnosed by having a skin biopsy. Treated with Dapsone, an antibiotic, and gluten free diet. My symptoms are not exactly as I have read about, and pictures my doctor showed me are a little different. Also, I have been using coconut oil to treat dry itchy skin. If allergic to it, it can cause contact dermatitis. I guess this is also a possibility. Has anyone else had Dematitis Herpetiformis? If so, what were your symptoms? What helped? Did you have a biopsy? How long did it take to go away? Did it come back?
  3. I have been suffering with various symptoms for about 9 months and have recently decided to try a gluten-free diet. My symptoms have been: constant bloating (i used to have quite a flat stomach but I now look about 5 months pregnant, morning, noon and night!), rapid weight gain with no change in diet and despite diet and exercise I cannot shift any of it (I went up from 123lbs to 142lbs in 9 months), stomach/digestive pain, night sweats, headaches and muscle aches (particularly in my right arm and shoulder), irritability, low testosterone (according to my GP) and acid reflux. I have been to the doctor and had various tests and I don't have PCOS or a thyroid problem. I have been gluten-free for 5 days now and this weird prickling sensation has started happening in patches on my skin. There is no rash or redness that I can see. The other day it was mainly on my lower back, but now it seems to be principally on my ankles/lower calf area and forearms. I know that there is something called peripheral neuropathy that is a symptom of being gluten intolerant, but it seems weird to get this after going gluten free?? I do think I am starting to feel better from going gluten free but part of me wonders whether it is my imagination because I am so desperate to find an answer to all my symptoms. Although last night was the first night in a long time where I didnt wake up clamy from nightsweats, which I guess is a positive.
  4. I have had bouts of burning, itching hands accompanied with little blisters for few years. Doc says it "contact dermatitis" and prescribed creams but they never work. They usually will go away after a few days on their own so I stopped even mentioning it to the doc. I also get little pimply blisters in my scalp, usually shortly after I notice the hands flaring up, they are also itchy as well. Also accompanied by a mild itch all over, arms, legs, and backside as well. The symptoms come on fast and are usually cleared up in a day or so. I have never been able to tie them to any particular even or food/drink, nor have I ever really thought about trying until lately. Regarding the hands - when this flares up they will itch and burn so bad I tend to scratch and rub them raw sometimes. It gets unbearable at points. I always have a bit of gas and feel a little bloated, sometimes worse that others (wife will attest to that lol). Was diagnosed with diverticulosis a few years back and have had a bout with diverticulitis (inflamed and needed meds to get it under control). Keep it under control since with fiber supplements daily. I'm always tired, can't lose weight even with dieting and the gastric band I had installed a couple of years ago. Trouble concentrating and holding attention to tasks at hand for years. Never would have thought about putting any of these together in a "pot of symptoms" until my wife read an article on gluten intolerance and celiac's. I am going to make an appointment to see my doc and try to get him to run some test for gluten intolerance but am not really sure what to say to him. I have been reading some posts on here and you all seem like a great group of helpful and informative people.. So any suggestions? Looking forward to some ideas! Tony
  5. My eyes have a horrible inflamed itchy cracked wrinkly looking skin around them. And I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem.
  6. I know that others have posted pictures in here, and I'm just looking for some help. I've had these intensely itchy spots on my hands for about 18 years (I'm 36 now). Whenever I get them, I can wash my hands, use hand cream, cortisone ointment, hand sanitizer - nothing will stop the itch. The itch is stopped only by scratching, and it's a conscious thing - to scratch so much that the topmost layer of skin comes off. Once that happens, the spot goes numb. Day 2 is the most painful. Day 3 on, the wound is scabbed and healing. The bad part (you know, other than tearing my skin off) is that it looks like a burn. Here's a pic of my hand 3 days after the itchiness started: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8376303@N02/10354205753/ My "doctor" today told me it was "eczema" and "ringworm" and prescribed me a steroid cream from looking at my hand from 5 feet away. Has anyone else ever had something like this? I know it doesn't look like the typical DH and I realize it might not be DH (if not, mods feel free to delete). I'm just looking for some help because I've also had these spots on my ankles, wrists, arms and legs.
