Contact Dermatitis
0

5 posts in this topic

Don't know about anybody else, but besides the DH (which is much better after 3 years gluten-free) I also get contact dermatitis from stuff I touch. We are redoing our floors and a lot of our stuff needs refurbishing. So a couple of days ago I began taking old velcro off of geode slices that were on the wall. I was using Goo Gone and about 6 hours later my hands began to itch and the next day they were completely red, sore and itchy. It is now subsiding, but my hands feel like sandpaper now. That's what I get for not using surgical gloves. Shirley

My hands break out when I feed our rabbits alfalfa pellets. I get blisters. Wheat must be part of the mixture.

I am a newbie, and have had to wear gloves when I clean up crumbs from my kids. Also shampoos & Conditioners are killing me. Make up too. I have been diagnosed with DH since July 2004. Contact reaction is a definate for me.

Hello, I'm a newbie, and it's nice to know I'm not going crazy. I used a new liquid orange pledge the other day, and blistered the next day. If I forget to put gloves on, and clean up bread crumbs I blister. I thought I was super sensitive, and others would say that touching gluten does not affect you. It does me.

Touching gluten is not necessarily the problem here - a LOT of things can cause contact dermatitis in a lot of people. Obviously, the only thing to do is avoid the substance once you figure out you react to it, but it need not have anything to do with wheat or gluten.
