I am hypothyroid, not sure if I have hashimotos' the autoimmune type but my antibodies are top of the range.
About 18 months ago I saw an Immunologist because I started to suffer with cold urticaria (hives when out in the cold weather) he did lots of blood tests but nothing really showed up. He prescribed antihistamines.
Last week on holiday here in the U.K. I started with what I thought was prickly heat, as I had been sat in the sun. The next day the rash was on my stomach, which had been covered in the sun. The rash then began to spread and I still have it a week later. It looks very much like hives. It does not itch like my cold hives, just feels hot.
I am wondering if gluten could be the cause as although I do eat it daily I suppose I did eat more on holiday, having some lovely desserts that I don't normally have.
On the Thyroid forum some advise a gluten free diet especially if you have hash's. so I am wondering if I should try it.
Has anyone here had hives from eating gluten, if so did it go when you cut gluten out.
Any advice would be really appreciated.
