but it takes gluten to start it up, for me.
after our conversation I believe is for me too.

...iodine in the diet
May you name a few iodine containing foods please?

maybe soy or corn could be considered more suspect.
As time goes by I get upset more and more with corn. It is hidden everywhere.
I spend much more time at the food store reading the ingredients than the actually shopping time.

Hi Ion
I had a slight reaction to gluten this summer- and while I had my really bad reaction I couldnīt handle milk- even thougj I have no problem with it normally- so be carefull if you think you have a gluten reaction- you can even as a B be TEMPORARY allergic to lactose. It is quite common.
Well I kicked all gluten and dairy out for about 3-4 weeks- slowly got it back.
I seem to be able to handle some ammounts of gluten ( from spelt and oats) as long as I keep it to less than 1 serving pr day.
AND I have no problem with dairy today.

Iodine- most foods contains some- but fish and dairy contains more.

YES the corn is getting into our food as well

Thanks for your reply Henriette.
I never was diary product fun. After joining Btd I started consuming more yogurt than usual, but I never liked the commercial brands until goats milk came to town.
I love Goats yogurt and I use Goats milk to make Kefir, that I have almost every day now. Kefir has replaced all my dairy products.
I seem to be able to handle some amounts of gluten ( from spelt and oats) as long as I keep it to less than 1 serving pr day.
I am getting there too. I already make my own spelt oat cookies and may soon get my self together to make my own spelt bread.
Thanks for the iodine information.
May all be well with you.


PEACE

Yes, Vicki, I have tried those things too.  At one time the roller on my mouse worked, however it doesn't seem to work on all sites.
Thanks again.
Since Lola gave me the Determinator site I filled it in and got a list of things, mostly for old age I think, but I'm happy to know what I should be taking, I'm so busy in the shop trying to get things out the door that I have had a hard time finding time to check this site.  But I will try to get to it each evening, I really do like what I learnon here.

I still think it is scabies and will pursue a diagnosis this week! †

I found good advice in an online e-book for scabies. †For those who do not know, it is a human itch mite that burrows in the skin and lays eggs/etc.

I believe that "safe2use" product will kill them safely and environmentally.

KK, thank you!  I am considering this company:  http://www.dermatechrx.com/Scabies/

In addition to treating affected persons, I plan to use DE on the mattresses and then bag them for a few days.

Gee, Vicki, I never heard of them.  Can you see the entry point?  Is it a scab like location, hence the name Scabies?  I've had a rash but I get into so many things like poison oak, and slivers of old wood, and dirt in the 'barks' I get, that I'm not sure where these things come from.  Most heal up in a few days, even the barks, if I get a band aid on them before they get dirty.  At my age I have bumps and lumps and wrinkles and usually a bandaid somewhere.  But the itchy rash was different, but it went away.  Only lasted from Thursday when I first noticed it, till Sunday, after two days of Tea Tree oil.  Maybe my 6000 mg or Vit C is working.
I hope your Scabbies clear up soon.

Al, I haven't gotten the 10X mirror out yet.  The problem with scabies is that the whole household can be infected.  It is easily transmitted!  They hide in mattresses, clothes, couches, carpets, cars, etc!

You need to wash all bedding on a daily basis in as hot a water as possible.  Wash all surfaces daily.  It's a bear, but it can be done.

I had a rash that I thought was scabies, but a doctor determined that it wasn't.  (It's when I finally gave up hair dye.)  I even bought a microscope to try to see if I could see them.  You need at least 40x to see adult scabie bugs.

For ion, or anyone else who suspects DH, it's important to get it biopsied when it's active, and find out. †While your symptoms may be able to withstand some gluten, DH is equivalent to celiac disease as far as complications go...so once you know for sure, you would definitely want to be completely gluten free. †It's simply a skin manifestation of the intestinal disease, and whether or not an intestinal biopsy is positive, the complications and long-term consequences are the same...it's more than skin deep.

Melissa thank you for supporting me.
It was a pleasure to find someone to talk about it.
It was like a mystery for me. The general term, Dermatitis, they gave me at the hospital was very disappointing as I understood nothing about it.
The reason I did go at first was that I was afraid of herpes and wanted to be sure. They assure me is not.  
I'll keep your advices for further research.
Thanks a lot. Ion

Yes, herpes is the reason they call it herpetiformis, it looks similar.  Which is why I thought mine was shingles at first, it also looks similar to herpes.

If it flares up, and you have lesions anywhere other than the rough skin on elbows and knees, then a knowledgable dermatologist can biopsy it.  The trick to finding a good dermatologist is to ask on celiac support forums and the like for your area.  I didn't find one in time to get a biopsy, but I suppose that doesn't really matter since I already know I have CD.  He was confident enough that he was willing to prescribe Dapsone, if I weren't nursing, but that alone was enough to make me get better...I certainly don't want to take that prescription, I can handle an occasional itchy knee and I don't anticipate much more than that in the future.

I don't have it on elbows or knee either.
When it appears is a tiny area at the lower back.
I also have set a goal to deal with without medication.
Confirming by you my suspicions on gluten sets a new light in the case.  
If this is the case then is a pity as I was thinking to include spelt bread into my diet.
If I have problem with gluten then I should redirect my self on a no glutinous bread.  
Wish to both of us good luck and success.
Ion
