Skin patches like hives on the arm. On gluten free diet. Could this be stress related? Suffering from anxiety and panic attacks

I have skin patches that look like hives that appear on the part of my arm above the elbow where blood would be taken. I have researched into tinea vesicolor and also psoriasis . I have also changed my diet as I am a homeopathic person. I currently am on an all gluten free diet hoping to see a difference and I did for the first 4-5 days it started to clear up but now it has returned the only thing I can think is it could be stress related. I used to be a competitive runner and very healthy as well as active and since my son was born 5 years ago I ve been battling anxiety and panic attacks. My biggest concern is liver related issues and wondering if I should continue the gluten free lifestyle?

If problem is very severe and leading to frequent interpersonal problems, then for assessment and treatment, you can visit specialists like dermatologist, general physician and psychiatrist.
