I don't know of any creams to help your son's itch, but I'd like to let you know that I'm thinking and praying for him, and you.
I have a small patch on my ankle and it drives me almost mental when it is at it's worst.

I would ask a doctor or dermatologist for Dapsone. It will help when he has "accidents" w/gluten. He can have his blood drawn once a month for a few months to make sure he's not having the side effects. Like I said, I never had any problems with it and was much happier using the Dapsone than being totally gluten free. I would be using the Dapsone if I were not trying to get pregnant.

If your son took the dapsone only when he starts an outbreak, he'd still suffer some but not as long and not as much. The DH should cease to be a problem after he's been strictly gluten-free for a while.

I'd be willing to get the dapsone if it wasn't something he had to take all the time, but just during outbreaks. Thanks for the info, Richard! Any shortening of reaction time would be wonderful for him.
