  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Can't Sleep And Itching....

    This sounds exactly like the symptoms I get. I have been itchy since Easter Sunday - but it comes and goes in various degrees. After about a week I had a rash on the inside of my thighs - otherwise it just feels like hives under the skin with no outside visible marks. I am taking a combination of Allegra and Zantac to try and get rid of the itchy. At first I thought it was working, but now it is worse again. I don't know at this point if it is food, makeup, or other personal items. Any suggestions for relief would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Hair Color Product

    I just checked with my hair stylist, and she uses Logics, and it isn't gluten-free. If anyone else knows of anything please let me know! Thanks.
  5. Hair Color Product

    Thanks. I'll pass that information on to my hair stylist. My Wild Word from Wild Women calendar says: "The heck with the natural look. Where would Marilyn Monroe be if she'd clung to the hair color God gave her? We'd have a movie called "Gentlemen Prefer Mousy Brown Hair."
  6. Hair Color Product

    Beginning in March I started experiencing the total body itchyness. I am gluten-free now both for foods and skin products. My only problem now is everytime I get my hair colored I have a week of itchyness. Does anyone know of a hair coloring product [either used in a salon or over the counter] that is gluten-free? My hairdresser has asked her sales representative, but has found nothing. She is wonderful because her Grandmother is also a celiac so she understands the problem, but we can't find anything that works.
  7. Itchy, Itchy, Itchy

    I do have celiac disease, but I have never had sores, and the posting relating to DH don't seem to apply to me. Benadryl does help some, but I can only take it at night because it knocks me out and sleeping on the job is NOT a good thing.
  8. Help. I am itchy, itchy, itchy. EVERYWHERE! However, I do not have any outward signs of hives or sores. It feels like it is coming from inside my body. I don't know if it is food or topical things like shampoo, hair coloring, soap, or other things that may not be gluten-free. 1. Does anyone else suffer from this symptom? 2. Is there any relief for the symptoms? 3. Is there a guide to the chemicals in shampoos, soaps, etc that can tell me so I can know their origin grains?
