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.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
