So those weird spots I was getting where they were mini rashes, they looked like bug bites it turns out from what I’ve been reading it’s from gluten. To be specific it’s called Dermatitis herpetiformis which is “celiac disease of the skin”. It is a chronic skin condition with a characteristic rash with intense itching and burning sensations.
Which would explain what I’ve been getting. Since I’ve stopped eating buns and have really cut back on pasta and what not I haven’t had any more rashes. Or spots of any kind. I’m still supposed to go see a dermatologist but I have another appointment with my family doctor next week. I do plan to bring this up to him.

I originally cut out breads and buns and that sort of thing when my IBS was really acting up. But then it went away and I have been introducing them back into my diet more regularly this year. But then it’s this year that I’ve been getting these rashes and what not. I mean I have photos that you would be shocked to see how bad it has got.
Honestly it’s been pretty nasty. My doctor had given me hardcore Mometasone Cream 0.1% but honestly it didn’t help with this. Not a ton of help to be honest. He had also had me take a antihistamine which I took for about a week. But after doing some serious reading and found that information on DM a little light bulb 💡 went off and it’s like nope this makes perfect sense.
Also my IBS made its ugly face appear. Two days ago I was in excruciating pain my stomach was full of gas I had severe cramps. My tummy swelled up so much I looked pregos. I took two bascopan pills and it went away. I had salmon and veg for dinner but the veg had Broccoli and Collie flower and green beans which usually I’ve had in the past with no problems. I honestly thought I had kicked IBS but nope. So now I have to go back and watch what veg I’m eating. So much for eating almost anything I wanted.
Id like to mention to that when I was in Montreal I tried to drink a beer a light one but nonetheless my system wasn’t having any of it because it was making me bloated. So No more beer for me for a while which sucks because there are three different kinds of 🍺 beers I enjoy and now I have to cut them out of my life.
So that is the latest. I think by cutting out breads and buns and cutting down on pastas and that sort of thing I won’t have to suffer through those rashes again. And for the IBS I just need to watch what vegetables I consume. It’s funny because IBS comes and it goes.
Oh the joys
