Re Facial rash: from Joanne on 2006-07-07

We have a history of coeliac in the family. Recently several of us (mother, sister, myself) have also had a diagnosis of fructose malabsorbtion (often goes hand in hand with coeliac, like lactose intolerance).

(One place to get a good overview of Fructose malabsorbtion is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fructose_malabsorption)

Anyway, recently my 5 year old has developed a rash on his cheeks (small red and tiny pussy spots) as well as bad flatualence. Looking over his diet I have been adding apples to his lunchbox lately which is one of the fructose problem foods. As of this morning I have started him on the fructose malabsorbtion diet too. Hopefully this will make a difference.

Maybe it would be worth investigating this if anyone else has problems. Once you are on the coeliac diet, it isn't such a big leap to include the fructose malabsorption diet (for me it mostly meant also cutting out onions and apples). Good luck.

what about other kinds of rashes? I have a rash on my upper arms that is itchy and is very fine, red and bumpy. It doesn't appear to be the classis celiac rash, but I am just waiting to be diagnosed with the family curse and this may be the beginning. or the end, depending on your point of view!

I have had the rash that seems to be the main topic of conversation re facial rash.
Being a Celiac i went to my GP and asked if it might be related. he said no it could not be. this went on for several visits until i decided to go to a hospital. Whilst waiting i spoke to a junior Doctor about the weather and he asked if i had come to the hospital about my facial rash because he thought he recognised the spots as Dermatitis Herptiformis. sure enough i was diagnosed and he was right.
I now take 150ml of dapsone a day and the only time i ever get the rash is if i forget to take my tablets.
hope this helps someone if it does please let me know.

I have been in the same boat being a coeliac and with a rash on my shoulders, upper chest and chin area - they can sting too. I have been through treatments for rosacea, acne, tea tree balm and they all burnt my skin, made it worse actually. My doctor has just put me on dapsone too, but 100mg perday. I have only been on the tablets for a week and nothing has really changed - I wonder how long it will take? Im interested that Joe above take 150mg - my doctor said I need to monitor the dosage myself, but down when the rash gets better. I also have adenomyosis of the uterus, but having a hysterectomy next month - I wonder if that is connected, the rash could be a result of the toxicity in my system. Hopefully it will help anyway.

I think the nostril to chin rash is perioral dermatitis which I have read can be associated with malabsorbtion - which can be ceoliac disease. I have the rash. If I eat gluten it comes back. If I don't it slowly clears up. Dont put a cortisone cream on it. It will make it worse. Vinegar helped but I smelt like a fish & chip shop.

I was sent to two dermotologists and a rheumatologist, finally I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease by my Primary doctor after 6 months, I have been on Minocyclene for my face rash and on the Gluten Free Diet for one month and I have only seen results if I stay on the minocyclene anitbiotic. It irritated my stomach at first but now that I take Nexium and zantac together it's much better. If there is anything else I could do other than an antibotic please let me know, I really don't like taking so much medication.

yeas+ is also a culpri+ for many skin rashes.



many wi+h whea+/glue+en in+olerance gone unchecked or who have high amoun+s of surgar inges+ion will have an yeas+ bloom.



yeas+ can cause all kinds of ailmen+s from ar+hri+is, +o as+hma, skin rashes such as exzema, psorisis (sp).



+o find ou+ if you have Candida (yeas+) simply avoid surgar for 2 weeks and s+arch. yes i know i know. groan. your heal+h is wor+h i+ however.



Once you ge+ your bodies PH balance in order you can have some swee+ s+uff, jus+ don'+ over kill and make sure your ea+ing your veggies so you s+ay ph balanced
