: Angie, i'm 1 week into my gluten free xperiment. i think it's too early to draw any conclusions so i'm going to give it another week and then i'll tell you what's occurring. by the way, when you were suffering from celiac were you also affected by dermatitus herpetiformus and if so how did this manifest itself?

Yes, I do have the dermatitis hepteformis. I get tiny little itchy blisters on and between my fingers, the palms of my hands. I get them on my cheekbones and under my eyes as well. They itch before they even show up. Then these teeny tiny patches of blisters show up about 5 to 6 hours after the itching starts. The itch is so bad, I usually end up breaking the blisters just by rubbing on them. If I leave them alone, they will ususally go away in less than 24 hours. Since I've been on the gluten free diet, I have not had one incidence. I take that back...I had to have a sandwich about a month ago or I thought I was going to die. Ate the sandwich, the next day, I was sick and the blisters made their appearance. I haven't had the blisters as long as I've had Celiac. I've had Celiac for 20 years and the blisters showed up about 8 years ago. My dr. thought it was hormonal and just gave me cream for it, Diprolene, which dried them up immediately, but dried my skin out so much it cracked and bled. So, I quit using it unless the patches of blisters were larger than usual.
How are you feeling?
