i’ve had celiac for 4 years (my lovely celiac anniversary today..haha)…and
if i eat anything with gluten in it, i don’t get an upset stomach, nausea,
etc. in the past few months i’ve noticed that what i thought was excema
comes out more if i happen to eat gluten. could this be dermatitis
when i have an ‘outbreak’ on my face….i put cortate 1% on it and it helps
out a lot. i am wondering if this is what others do as well?
thanks for any information!

If you are gluten intolerant, I hope you’re not knowingly eating
anything with gluten in it, symptoms or not. It could be very dangerous
to your health. More than likely your rash is due to the gluten and the
only thing that will stop it is a 100% gluten-free diet.

Yes, it’s could be dermatitis herpetiformis. The only way to know for sure
is to go to a dermatologist and have him look at (and biopsy) it. For
several years I thought I either had a resurgence of acne or eczema, with
outbreaks on my face, knees, and elbows. Nobody knew what it was until I
went to a dermatologist. He knew what it was as soon as he saw it, but the
biopsy was conclusive.
In the short run, if you have lots of rashes and itching it can be cleared
up with dapsone (a powerful steroid). Realize, though, that the gluten
antibodies stay in your skin and can cause eruptions for a long time even
after you stop eating food containing gluten. It does in mine. So don’t
delay starting the gluten-free diet. Otherwise, if it is DH it will likely
get worse, and your celiac disease will damage your gut even if you don’t

I have DH. At first I didn’t experience any of the nasty reactions of upset i don’t eat gluten on purpose…usually when i notice the rash is back i the rash is itchy and at its worst looks almost like a small bubble..there thanks again! delia 🙂 I got the blisters a couple years ago. The blisters are so painful like I am undiagnosed by medical tests. Gluten Free living all those symptoms I had a lot of support from Celiac.com. shirley

But does it itch? If not, then it isn't DH. And if DH, and you don't itch it to scabbing, it will have a little dot in the middle. Don

wear any clotheing over it. I used CO-10 cream to control the itching,
but had to live through the pain a few days.

got the blisters.
