Facial rash: from on 2004-04-26

I have been a coeliac for about 7 years going through the usual digestive problems and symptoms. I am suddenly developed a facial rash of which some spots erupt into blisters or pussy spots. I need to know if it could be a side effect of the ceoliacs disease. Has anyone come across this before, or do I need to look at alternative allergies - argh. I have had this rash for about 3 months

Ann, I have read on several internet pieces that there is a rash associated with this disease. Try researching it on the web...wish I could remember the name of it, but at the moment I am having an early "senior" moment. It is out there on the web, though.

i have had this rash for 2 weeks. It is on the chin area, mostly on one side. It is starting to spread. I have tried a few home treatments and using vasaline and i camt to believe that that was aiding it. It looks like very tiny blisters, but they are not. sometoimes itchy and maybe a little scally. Anyone out there have a suggestion other than seeing a dermatologist. eileen

If the rash is from exposure to gluten, then 7 days is not long enough for it to subside.
It should decline slowly over a period of several weeks, and eventually disappear altogether.
In some cases the rash may take longer to subside in spite of following a completely gluten-free diet.

I am afraid that only your doctor can recommend suitable treatments to alleviate the discomfort.

I have been using Eurax cream for my blisters I bought It over the counter at my chemist,It took a week to see a difference and I only have to apply It every few days now to keep the blisters at bay.Only use a tiny ammount otherwise your skin will peel.
