I recently came across this great summary of the most common skin disorders related to gluten illness when I was presented with what I thought looked like dermatitis herpetiformis, the skin condition most associated with coeliac disease. I was sending the person a gallery of lovely photos so she could have a look and see if she recognised it before seeing her GP.
In fact, did you know you can have just the skin manifestation of coeliac disease and no other symptoms present and you are still classed as coeliac…?
The skin conditions discussed include:
Chronic Urticaria (Hives)
Keratosis Pilaris (Chicken Skin)
There are lots of links to each condition and photos that could help you identify them. If you spy something familiar, go and talk to your health professional.
