    Could this be Celiac?

    Hey everyone! This is my first time here so please be gentle :-)

    I was diagnosed with IBS right after I gave birth to my oldest child 17 years ago. I never thought anything else about until recently. About 3 months ago, I started getting a rash under my breasts that was incredibly itchy. I tried everything under the sun, baby powder, diaper rash cream, anti fungal medicine, you name it, I tried it; it would not go away. I finally gave in and went to a doctor (I donít have health insurance and money is extremely tight) and he told me it was a fungal infection, gave me yet another cream and oral meds. Itís finally starting to look a little better, but the itching is still pretty bad. In addition, Iíve noticed the rash is spreading to my stomach and arms.

    I recently realized that the itching gets worse after I eat or consume gluten. Iíve been doing some reading, and it says that a rash typically appears on the elbows, knees or buttocks. Iím not sure if this could be related or not. I will hopefully have insurance soon and will be able to get to a doctor and get tested, but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced similar symptoms?

    Other symptoms include: intermittent diarrhea and constipation; extreme abdominal pain with nausea; difficulty losing weight; fatigue
