Itchy Ears
0

4 posts in this topic

My husband has itchy weepy blister inside his ear canals. Before we figured out he had Celiac Disease (by self diagnosis) the itchy weepy blisters were also near his eyes around his tear ducts. (He was diagnosed with celiac disease as a child but his mom never kept him on a gluten-free diet.) For the last six months we've maintained a gluten-free lifestyle but occassionally are surprized to find gluten in shampoo or some other product. When we go out to eat we always stress that our food must be gluten-free but they can be careless......The first symptom he has is itchy ears, then the weepy blisters, then they crust over and block his hearing. We need a recomendation for a treatment and a doctor in the DFW area. Our whole family is gluten-free now but the DH is making my husband more miserable than giving up wheat.

Many Thanks,

Cathey

I have no suggestions as my husband is going thru almost the same thing. The skin errupts close to his ear canal (not in it thankfully). I'd sure like to know what to use that would help it (other than gluten-free diet and gluten-free skin lotions).

Cathey and Deb, I have the same problems exactly with my ears, I also have these in my nose. I was diagnosed several years ago, but this is a recent problem. I also have the weepy, itchy blisters on my knees, elbows, shoulders and occasionally on my face. The only way they will go away is to eat gluton-free. Occasionally when they are severe, my Dr. will give me a scrip for Dapsone. He's very stingy with it. I guess it can ca use more problems. Good Luck Carlena

If you break out with these blisters and dapsone takes care oif them, you have DH. And if you have DH, you also without question have celiac. According to celiac experts, you don't even need the celiac tests. You need to go gluten-free full time.
