Dh Relief
0

3 posts in this topic

Last week I was suffering from some DH breakouts and hives (new makeup issue).  I went into my local Wallgreen's and decided to pick-up some new gluten free lotion to try.  I sampled Dove Cream Oil (extra dry skin/advanced formula) on my itchy arms and hands in the store.  I laughed to myself thinking, "I'm either going to feel a little better or a whole lot worse in about 30 minutes."

 

I liked the way the lotion felt on my skin and decided to purchase it.  I noticed on my drive home that I was no longer itching on my hands as I had all morning long.  I waited a few hours and my hands felt soft and calm.  I decided to go for the gusto and apply it to my whole body.  Same result.  My DH on my stomach, back, legs, and shoulders were no longer driving me insane.

 

I had a peaceful nights sleep for once!!!  So, I have been religiously this cream to my body for the past few days.  I actually feel normal.  WOW.  I forgot what that was like.

 

I am pleased to announce that my skin is calm.  No new breakouts.  My DH spots are healing & I have a new sense of hope that I can experience some relief!!!

 

It is very early on, but I really wanted to share this good news.  I know how miserable this itching can be and if this helps anyone else I will be so pleased.

 

 

Thank you.

Hmmm, that's interesting.  I may have to pick some up.  My daughter should try that.  She has rashes / dry skin all over her arms and legs that I'm starting to wonder if it isn't DH.  For my DH, I sometimes put preparation H on it which actually numbs it and helps with the itching.

It's no cure for sure, but my skin now is soft, it calms my itching within a few minutes, and I swear my reactions are left frequent. Good luck. I will have to try prep h too. Thanks!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
