Have been dealing with a severe itchy leg condition a year

Customer Question

Hello
Have been dealing with a severe itchy leg condition for over a year now and seen countless doctors and specialist.
Doctors have ruled out scabbies, liver issues, kidney issues, skin infections etc.
What we did find was that I am highly allergic to Wheat. I recently when gluten free for my diet which was about 2 weeks ago and the leg itching has gotten worse. More concerning is the fact that I now have painful rashes under my arms that are unbearable.
Any ideas why this is getting worse now that I am gluten free?
thanks
