Gluten Intolerance and Rashes
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

Hi Mary,

Yes, gluten intolerance can be responsible for rashes. The most well known that is associated with Gluten is a condition called Dermatitis Herpetiformis.

DH is an under recognized skin condition that qualifies a person for the diagnosis of celiac disease- the medically recognized form of severe Gluten Intolerance.

Less well known is that Gluten Sensitivity can also be responsible for some eczema and psoriasis- as well as some unidentifiable chronic skin conditions that just won't go away.

If you have a chronic skin condition, it is worth a trial of Gluten Free Eating to see if the condition goes away. If it does, then you have Gluten Sensitivity!

See some of the research that I've collected on Gluten and skin problems here at my Celiac Disease Research Page

But some other causes of rashes and skin conditions are the use of toxic ingredients in body care products as well as LAUNDRY products!!

Eating organic foods and generally limiting any toxic 'stuff' going into your body can also help to get rid of any skin conditions as well.

Skin Question!
by: Anonymous

Help! My 7 year old daughter's leg look exactly like the legs in the picture, what is that called? I have seached for answers and her pediatric doctor has never seen this white vertical mark. It goes from her foot all the way up the back of her leg. We meet with the dermatologist soon!

I have had neurological symptoms they thought were MS, but after spinal tap and MRI came back normal I start questioning whether it could be gluten sensitivity peripheral neuropathy. I have all the symptoms of gluten intolerance and am now waiting for my food panel results.

So, I am thinking my daughter my also be sensitive to gluten. She to has signs, especially skin conditions. I have search for images that resemble my daughters leg and this is the only picture that I can find. What is it caled?

The skin condition in the picture is just glare from the camera lights. It wasn't a picture of a skin condition, just a picture of skin.

If you think that your daughter has Gluten Sensitivity, then just get her off of it. It's possible that the skin condition will just go away.

And if you think that your symptoms might be due to gluten, just get off of gluten. A food panel may not catch gluten sensitivity. It's an allergy test and gluten sensitivity is not an allergy.

While it often co-exists with an allergy to gluten, it may not and many people have gluten sensitivity with no allergies and negative food panels. Why wait, just get off of gluten.
