I have a circular red bumpy itchy patch of skin that just appeared on my stomach a few days ago. There is only one and it doesn t appear to be spreading at the present time. Can you tell me what it might be and if there are any over the counter remedies that I could purchase? I am 61, 5 3 and about 125 lbs. I don t have a medical history because I have always been a very healthy person. I have been under a fair amount of stress as of late but I m not the stressed out kind of person either so I don t know if that could have anything to do with this irritant. Thank you

Hello, I'm 50 years old. I have Crohn's disease since 1984. I keep it at bay since 1995 by being vegetarian and eating lactose free. (Parmesan cheese older than 30 months is advertised as being lactose free). Recently I have diagnosed myself as having Duhring's disease or Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It was confirmed by a young doctor in the E.R. room at the hospital. So now I'm eating vegetarian, lactose free, and Gluten free too. How long will it take for me to overcome the terrible-looking, itchy skin condition that I have from when I stopped eating Gluten? Thanks so much for your responses. Maurizio Pieroni YYYY@YYYY
