Body Welts and Malabsorption

I have been going to see specialists for the past ten years. I have horrible body welts that I wake up to in the morning. They go away towards the end of the day. My Dr says that according to my tests I am having a problem with Malabsorbtion. Could this be the cause? Also what causes Malabsorbtion?

It can cause a painful skin rash, I don't know if this is what you're seeing or actual welts.  If you've been going to the same doctor for 10 years it may be time for a second opinion.  Below is an excellent site to answer all your questions.  Take care.

Thankyou so much for your reply! june 6th I will be going in for an endoscopy. I have been diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitity disorder. I hope some of those symptoms will subside if this is the cause.
