4 Year Old With Possible Dh, In Pain Please Help
0

4 posts in this topic

My 4 year old (gluten free for 2 weeks now) got into my makeup and put some on (little girls do that some times) anyway the lipstick had gluten in it (I didn't know because I am not gluten-free and I didn't expect my girls to wear it) now she has a bad rash on and around her lips. She says it hurts, what can I put on it to help her? Cornstarch isn't working. Her dr. said she has to live with it, but I don't think he knows anything about DH.

does anyone here have ideas on what might help her?

In theory, topical steroids can be used on DH rashes, but on the lips, probably not. Have you tried taking her to a dermatologist who knows how to treat DH?

My dd gets a rash around her mouth when she gets glutened. She also has an Igg reaction to wheat which combats the problem.

We've taken her to 3 dermatologists and one was a ped. derma. We've used topical steroid creams, ointments and oils. They do seem to help with the inflammation and itching.

I like to use George's Always Active Aloe Vera Juice. The juice doesn't have any additives and is meant to drink. I keep it in a spray bottle and use a baby wash cloth to apply when her mouth gets irritated. It doesn't work as quickly as the steroids but it much safer to use and does help to soothe the area and promote healing. I've also used Red Clover Salve Plus by St. Francis Herbs.

Some people are againist petroleum jelly but it can from a protective barrier.

My dd has eczema. I like to use organic, extra virg. olive oil in a spray bottle to help moisturize and soothe break outs. Coconut oil/butter is also good for the skin.

Hope your dd feels better soon. :)

wow. thank you so much. I went out and bought some aloe vera like you said and she says it feels better. I was feeling so guilty about her being in pain from my mistake of not putting my makeup up correctly. I guess I will learn though.
