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.

    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
    • Hi Natalie, The dairy should be eliminated completely for a few weeks at least.  It can be hard to tell what food is causing symptoms at first.  Dairy is a known problem for many people, even those who don't have celiac disease.  Carbs are bad if you are having digestive upset and bloating.  The carbs feed the bacteria that make gas in your gut and that can cause symptoms.  Everybody is an individual though so you may not have bad symptoms.  But when you are trying to heal fast and aren't sure what's causing the problems, eliminating some common problem foods makes sense.  There is no reason to reduce the dairy and carbs slowly though.  They can be cut out completely right away.  You should be able to tell if it's helping within a week or so.  Eliminating them is no problem as long as you don't blow away!    
    • I think it won't hurt a bit to eliminate dairy for a while. As far as carbs, that's kind of an individual thing. Some do better without them or with limiting them and some, like myself, have to have carbs. I am skinny, have a high metabolism & would dry up & blow away without my carbs & I eat lots of carbs. They don't bother me. Keeping a food & symptom log can be a great help especially in the beginning.
