I have had it for years. It was real bad and then when I stopped all gluten it went away for a while. Then I had a bad reaction to a gamma globulin infusion and I also took a generic Amoxicillin at the same time (so I can't be certain which actually caused the reaction: bad GG, or bad genenric amoxicillin, or a new penicillin reaction (never had it before) or some gluten I ate inadvertently. My GG infusion was at Mt. Sinai Hosp. NYC, immunology dept. because my body makes no IG-A or IG-G etc. That MD convinced me that I had to get GG or I would die of infection. Note: I am 80 years old and I have not died without GG all these years! Nevertheless, since that time I have gotten my Dermatis Herpetiformis back and cannot get rid of the red blotches and swollen welts altho I am carefully not eating any gluten (that I know of). I take some pharma for hypertension and prostate CA and maybe that has some gluten??? I have queried the pharma manufacturers about gluten in their products and they cannot tell me anything, just bla bla "product made in China, or Thailand, or Maylaysia. (What a banana republic this USA as become under our wonderful liberal elected leaders!!!
