People with celiac disease — an autoimmune disease causing gluten sensitivity — may find that gluten gives them rashes and makes their eczema worse. However, the research on the link is muddled, and researchers are not exactly sure how gluten affects eczema.

In a 2020 study, researchers found no link between gluten intake and eczema, suggesting that gluten does not cause eczema. Conversely, researchers running a different 2020 study found higher rates of celiac disease among people with atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema.

Among those with more severe eczema, the rate of celiac disease was almost three times higher.
