hello, I have recently been diagnosed with DH. How do I get a list of safe shapoo's, conditioners, cosmetics, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been being very careful in what I eat, and still breaking out. I called Pantene today, and the said they hide gluten in thier fragrances. Now I don't know what to use. HELP :blink: Thanks

Gluten isn't supposed to cause DH outbreaks unless you swallow it. My DH has never come back from gluten on the skin.

Two things come to mind. First, DH can take months to disappear after going gluten-free. And even small mistakes can bring it back.

Second, until you heal and get rid of the Iga deposits that are triggered into outbreaks, iodine can cause them. You need to avoid iodized salt and seafood with iodine. This is not permanent. You can resume iodine after a while.

Hi,

I don't have DH but I am gluten intolerant. I used to use Nexxus

shampoo but my scalp got increasingly itchy after going gluten-free.

I tried Johnson's Baby Shampoo but I still itched. I finally

heard on this board that Garnier Fructis (sp?) is gluten-free

so I tried it this week and my itchy scalp is almost gone.

I also use Dove soap, company said it would list wheat as an

ingredient so I felt ok by using it. I used to use Estee Lauder

makeup, I noticed that my eyes felt funny after putting it on, this

is always a clue for me, I don't know if anyone else has these

symptoms. Now I am using Cover Girl with 0 problems.

Anyway don't take my word for it because ingredients can change

so please call the company first and good luck finding something that

works for you..

It's hard to find a list of gluten-free Shampoos, etc. because so many believe that you have to eat gluten to be affected by it. I think this varies from person to person. I do get DH from contact (external) with things that contain wheat. I feel like you are better off just checking ingredients. Garnier Fructis works really well for me. Cheaper shampoos seem much safer- look at Target or the grocery store instead of a salon. Salon shampoos almost always have wheat protein or HVP Hydrolized Vegetable Protein which can come from wheat. And since everyone is different, you may not even react from wheat in toiletries- it certainly won't damage your intestines unless it gets inside you! My skin is just super sensitive so I have to check everything I use (detergents, hand soaps, hair color, etc.)

Thank you for the advise, I am going to do the trial and error thing. I have been trying to do a lot more reading, and learning. Does anyone know where I can get a list that tells me what ingredients are derived from? On the cosmetics, and shampoo's etc. they have all the ingredients, but they are a foriegn language to me. I have been diagnosed with DH since july 2004. It has been a long road for me, but I am learning :D Thanks for all your support.

Do any of you dye your hair? Which products work for you? I don't have DH, but I keep having problems when I dye my hair. The gray is overwhelming and depressing. Any suggestions? I have not found any of the henna dyes in my area.

Tiny86: If you find a list of chemical names and what they mean to celiacs, can you send it to me?

Thanks!

I am a hairdresser and my opinion is you should go for highlights/lowlights. As a person ages the skin tone lightens and you should go for a lighter color for your hair. You don't have to go blonde! Highlighting/lowlighting services stay off the scalp and touch-up time is a few more weeks further in between. The price is usually adjusted for three times more than all over color (6-8 weeks touchup), and is expected to last that long (18 - 24 weeks touch up for highlights).

My hairdresser uses a brand of hair color called "Framesi" and I looked carefully at the ingredients and didn't see anything that looked like wheat protein. It is like reading a foreign language isn't it.?

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
