Hi everyone! So I have had scalp/skin seborrhea for the past 3 years. My dermatologist has prescribed me numerous ointments and medications, all of which i stopped applying after I googled the ingredients. About 7 months ago I was speaking to a family friend who is currently in med school, he advised me to try cutting out gluten as dermatitis was an inflammatory disease which can be triggered by the protein in gluten. I immediately stopped eating gluten and within weeks all signs of my SD were gone. Even if I cheated a little bit, I would immediately get red and itchy. I don't completely understand the correlation between gluten and seborrhea but I have read that gluten causes autoimmune reactions in the body. Psoriasis runs in my family as well as asthma, arthritis, reflux and IBS. I have had acid reflux since I was born as well. I am thinking about being tested for Celiac's but I have had an endoscopy before and all they diagnosed me with was reflux. If anyone has any thoughts on this or has experienced the same thing please share. i do not completely understand the idea of gluten intolerance quite yet! Thanks :)

The University of Chicago's Celiac website is a great place to start!  Here's a link regarding the actual blood tests that your doctor can order.  You must be eating gluten though (for a couple of months) in order to get a valid result.

If positive, you may need an endoscopy where the doctor should take up to six or seven tissue samples (biopsy).  It sounds like your doctor just did a visual on your last endoscopy.  

 

Welcome to the forum and search the forum for topics that might apply to you (e.g. your SD)!  There's a wealth of information about celiac disease and gluten intolerance.
