I used to use oil of olay, but my face now gets bright pink as soon as I put it on. I tried other brands, hand creams too, and the same thing happens. I stopped using anything, and now I look like I have my Grandma's skin. HELP???!!!

Alison, I don't know what the common, offending ingredient could be, but there must be one. Why don't you try just using olive oil to moisturize for now? My homeopath recommended that for me, until I found out that it's high in salicylates. Otherwise I would try it, too.

Try "Udderly Smooth Udder Cream" (it comes in a jar with the black and white COW print).

You can get it at Amazon, CVS, many places.

I use it on my body and when I really was broken out with DH it was the only lotion/cream I could use without making me itch and break out more. It's very light and it absorbs fast and does a good job and it smells very light too. I really like it a lot for the whole body. For my face I use face creams like Olay and Yves Rocher, because I don't have allergic problems with my face anymore. But I DID when DH was bad.

However if you are allergic to something like "petrolatum" which is in almost all lotions/creams you may have a problem. Then you will have to get expensive stuff from one of the cosmetic makers. Yves Rocher has some stuff that is hypo-allergenic and so does Mary Kay and Avon and some of the other Dept. Store brands.

The link below is to the Amazon page with all the Udder Cream on it so you can what they look like and id them in the stores or order from Amazon.

http://www.amazon .com/s.html/104-7198746-6...dderly%20Smooth

They SAY that Eucerin is hypo-allergenic. You could try that too. Trying all this stuff gets expensive, I KNOW. I have a bathroom FULL of creams and lotions. Some good, some bad. But I have WAY TOO MANY!

I use Mary Kay. I used to use Eminence (all natural, organic, good stuff, VERY expensive, 54.00 for my moist.). The more I read and contact companies, the more I learn IS safe rather than NOT safe.

You might want to "patch test" stuff on the inside of your elbow (recomended by a derm.) because the skin there rubs together, so if there is going to be a problem, it would show up there. I, for one, have had reactions on my face, that I didn't have anywhere else, but that is what the Derm recomended.

You've helped me so much, I hope this will help you.

I also got the 'bright pink' flush after using all the products people have recommended on here in the past threads and others that seem to work for them. All May Kaye products 'have killed me even before dx'

Since I am under going treatment for lymphedema as a result to the cellulitis, the PT doing the MLD has said the only lotion I can use iever is 'Eucerin' I got it at CVS and large pump bottle is maybe $13.00.

It is called a dry skin therapy and is a moisturizing lotion. I ck'ed it with my Chiro and she approves too as it has natural ingreg and not peterolium (which most otheres do) I did a search on here and all say is gluten-free as i asked the Pt AND CHIRO TOO. AND ALL SAID OK...I haven't ck'd the product web site or deplphia list but it sure agrees with me and have to use every hr while up during the day. It is fragrance free & has SPF 15 UVA/UVB protection SFP 30 (not sure why these 2 #'s are listed)

good luck. Let me know how you like it.

My dermatologist always reccommended cetaphil lotion, but I haven't a clue about gluten status. I currently use olay sensitive skin (no help to you, sorry), but in the past I've used neutrogena daily defense. I have really sensitive skin and it worked well.

Have you tried any clinique stuff? Much of it is hypoallergenic...

Burt's Bees has a bunch of skin stuff you might want to check out, also.

I believe that Cetaphil only gauratees there face wash to be safe and nothing else. Oil of Olay will not guarantee their products to be gluten-free as well due to outsourcing materials. I use Neutrogena, they can send you a big list for their gluten-free products, i still have to come across one that has Gluten in it. They have one for sensitive skin. I also use Kiss MY Face products, organic as they come. Check out their website, i think its just kissmyface.com They have a list of products that do contain gluten, but the majority of them dont. They have a great olive oil lotion.

Oh man, that is rough! I am great actually (at least I am working on convincing myself that I am great!). How are YOU? Are you getting some relief these days?

And not to get off the topic at hand, Mary Kay cosmetics are "hypo-allergenic" also. That term just means free of common allergens, and is actually thrown around a lot! LOL I have had an issue with some things at certian times, and then they didn't bother me later. My derm says that the skin is an organ, like any other, and can be super sensitive depending on the diet, time of year, time of month, etc. Just food for thought.

trying not to get too off topic, for those with multiple allergies (gluten, dairy, corn, soy, etc.) what lotions do you use for your face or body? I've never had DH so I don't have to worry about that but I figure I should look into changing a couple things I've put off since going gluten-free in January since I'm not quite getting healthy yet.. I looked at a bunch of "healthy" lotions when I was out earlier and it looked like most had suspicious ingredients for at least one of the allergens I'm avoiding... I saw lecithin listed in a couple which I'm assuming is soy lecithin since there's no other lecithin I know of...

as for the Eucerin, I got the following response from them in February regarding their Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme product:

"Although our products may not contain the above ingredients [gluten ingredients], it is always possible that one of our raw materials may contain traces of gluten because its presence is not excluded by our raw material specifications."

I'm not advising anyone not to use Eucerin by any means, just sharing the company's response, which is the same response I got from a number of companies which get raw ingredients from outside companies..

Hello,

I'm new to this board and so I hope I'm not repeating this information. Lingonberries is a gluten-free store in Vancouver, WA. My son happened to be driving through so he brought back a few things for me, including moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner. I love all three products - am having no problems with them. Now I plan to drive down and browse myself this weekend! I know you can purchase online here: http://www.lingonberriesmarket.com. The nice thing is that it appears that you can buy small sizes of personal care products and try them before a big 8 oz purchase. Do you want me to look at the bottle and see what the ingredients are?

Now, a few months ago I called Olay and asked about their SPF 15 and 30 moisturizing lotions (sensitive skin) and was told they were gluten free. Is this not the case?

Hi Fiddle Faddle

I have very sensitive skin and roseaca. I've been using Zia Moisturizing Cleanser--and find that I don't really need a daily moisturizer. At night, I use Zia Ultimate Night Renewal. My skin feels clean, yet smooth and not dry. My roseaca is also much better--only really noticeable if I've been out in the sun. I can't say enough about the stuff.

I've never heard of Zia--where do you find it?

You maybe right - my info is from the beginning of the year. It may have changed. I will double check. Thanks for that info...

Procter & Gamble makes Olay products, and they give a CYA response for all of their products, but the ingredients are fine. I think they will clearly list. At any rate, I haven't had a problem.

Im just thinking here... I thought P&G response also included that they get some of their raw materials from an outside source thats is why they cant guarantee them to be gluten-free (ie the fragrance) Same goes for the Pantene products they make.

Unless something has changed, which I will find out cause I emailed them again.

Ill let you know!!!!

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
