Hi guys. It's freezing her in Wisconsin. -2 F can you believe that? I'm cracking!

Anyways, I need a good lotion and before I was diagnosed I always used the Eucerin products like Aquaphor, etc...

They aren't open yet to call and I haven't seen anything on their site in their FAQ's.

Do you guys know if their products are gluten-free?

(For instance, right now I"m only using Cetaphil gentle cleanser because that's the only one that's gluten-free...)

I've been using "avon moisture theraphy Intensive hand cream" I emailed them and was told its safe. Its amazing stuff, my hands get so bad they would bleed, now they're so soft. I order on line, its in a white tube, blue lettering 4.2 oz.

my hubby has rosacea, nothing the dr gave him helped, he used this on his face and it all went away in 2 days!!

hope this helps :D

FYI - I was told by Eucerin today that they can't guarantee any of their products are gluten-free (incl. aquaphor).

I highly recommend Burt's Bees Hand Salve! I also use Vaselin Intensive Therapy. I have very dry skin.

I've been using ST.Ives Extreme Relief Intensive Healing Advanced Therapy Lotion. (Unscented . Hypo-Allergenic) It is one of the few lotions that feels soothing to me. Early I had posted a reply that I had received from St. Ives that listed all their products that contain gluten and this WAS NOT on that list.

I use Udderly Smooth Udder Cream on my hands. It's gluten-free, it's thick, but isn't at all greasy. http://www.uddercream.com/

For my body, I use Amlactin, which used to only be available with a prescription. You can usually find it near the pharmacy, or you can ask for it. It is gluten-free as well as corn free :)

Is this really the ONLY gluten free cleanser?

Why do we need to use gluten-fre body products? Gluten doesn't absorb through the skin does it? Is it just the risk of having it on your hands and therefore contaminating food? :huh:

No, perhaps she meant that the cleanser is the only *Cetaphil* product that is gluten-free. There are many gluten-free facial cleansers out there.

I use Zia Moisturizing Cleanser. It can be found at health food stores, Whole Foods and Wegman's Natural Marketplace.

There are also many other widely available brands.

I cook a lot, and wash my hands a lot, which doesn't help with dry skin. Rather than use hand lotion all the time, just to be quickly washed away, I keep a small container of a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil and use this generously while I'm in the kitchen. It's "food" so I feel I'm not contaminating my food with lotion ingredients (however safe) and is dirt cheap. It's nice on my lips, too.

When I'm not cooking, I use Savonnerie lotion www.gfsoap.com and Badger Balm (similar to Burt's Bee's balms). Both these products contain no gluten and no corn derivatives (which is usually in the vitamin E/C/A, etc.). Badger makes a lip balm, too, that's safe for those with corn allergies.

You're right about gluten not being absorbed through the skin. I use gluten-free lotion because I'm always putting it on may hands and sometimes I'll put my finger in my mouth to bite off a hang nail....

It's just an extra precaution.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
