Is it common for a gluten allergy to create skin rashes?

Dermatitis w/celiac

Rash
Dermatitis herpetiformis is the classic skin rash described with celiac disease. It is an intensely itchy raised vesicular eruption symmetrically distributed on the arms, legs, trunk, neck, scalp, and buttocks. Less than 10% of celiac disease patients will have the skin reaction, but 80% of those with dermatitis herpetiformis have celiac disease.

Is rashes usually a symptom of celiac disease/gluten intolerance or a wheat allergy?

DH

Dermatitis
Dermatitis herpetiformis is an extremely itchy rash made of bumps and blisters. The rash is chronic, which means it continues over a long period of time. Dermatitis herpetiformis usually begins in people age 20 and older, although children may sometimes be affected. It is seen in both men and women. The cause is unknown. However, dermatitis herpetiformis is frequently linked to gluten sensitivity

I may hav an allergy to Sulfates (after X'ing eggs, rashes bettr but not gone). Cant find body wash & shamp thats sulfate free AND gluten-free. Ideas?

Don't bother.

Rash
There are lots of sulfate-free shampoos (read the label). There are gluten-free shampoos too, but that is unnecessary. Unless you are drinking your shampoo for some reason, there is no way that shampooing your hair can cause a gluten enteropathy in your bowel. The "gluten-free" hype is really getting out of hand. Gluten is quite safe for all but a small number of gluten-sensitive people.

Dr. Eric M. Macy answered:

Are symptoms of wheat allergy different that gluten allergy?

Completely different

Celiac
All IgE-medited food allergies have the same symptoms, oral itching and hives if ingestion, progressing to anaphylaxis if large volume ingestion. Gluten intolerance in Celiac disease causes an inflammatory bowel disease and in about 15% a blistering rash called Dermatitis herpetiformis.

Is it okay that people try to avoid gluten even if they don't specifically have an allergy to it?

It will not hurt

Gluten
There is nothing wrong with avoiding gluten. But if you want to know if you have celiac disease, you should not eliminate this from your diet without a diagnosis. Visit celiac.org

I took a blood test to see if I had a gluten allergy a yr ago and nothing showed up,I have been gluten free for a yr and feel better.What does it mean?

Keep on keeping on

Gluten
regardless of the test, if you feel better there has to be something about gluten-containing foods that doesn't agree with you. Don't think too much about this. Do what makes you feel better.

Skin rashes on face from a food allergy. What do I take for this?

Avoid the food

Facial_scarring_after_acne
The best current treatment for food allergies is avoiding that particular food. After avoidance, antihistamines can decrease itching associated with food allergies. The use of steroid creams or ointments may help, but should be monitored by a physician. An allergist can assist in identifying the specific food trigger.
