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.?

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
