I know with Celiac you can have the rash,. but you can also have that as an actual allergic reaction to wheat. I have a child that I take care of once a week that has a severe allergy to wheat so much so that there is an epi-pen at the ready if need be. So if you haven't already get tested to see if you are allergic to it as well, and remember allergies can run in families so if you have it your children might also or they might not.

Technically, topical gluten does not cause reactions - according to the experts. However, those of us living with it know differently. I have to watch all skincare products for my kids and myself as we will break out in itchy hives (my kids have had showers at 2 am in morning cos they are reacting to something). I also don't wear makeup because of the reactions to the gluten in it.

I also know of someone with celiac who worked in a bakery and had to quit due to the reactions of the airborne gluten.

Personally, I think there is so many aspects to celiac/gluten intolerance that just isn't fully understood yet. Basically, if you are reacting to something then you need to remove yourself from whatever it is.

I've recently deduced, thanks to a site that showed someone's arms that look like mine, and talked about breakouts on the head too, that I have a gluten problem. Well, I've been about a week free of eating gluten and it looks like my scalp is no longer breaking out as of today.
However, I noticed after I dealt with some dog biscuits, dog food, handling white flour to bake for others, that I'm itchy on my arms. Could it be absorbed into my pores and react like that? I wondered if anyone else has had this happen, or knows about it.
