Dial Soap
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

I switched to Dove Soap shortly after going gluten free and the rash I've had all my life on my upper back completely went away.

I ran out of Dove and found an old bar of Dial, not sure what kind because it was a 6 pack and the big package was thrown out long ago. I now have 3 huge itchy bumps that I believe must be DH. They take forever to heal and burn and itch and are worse now than I think they ever were in the past.

Is there a Dial gluten free list? I'm trying to figure out what has caused this recent breakout.

Thanks!

I don't know if Dial is safe (I'm too new to all of this), but Dial drives me crazy. Growing up, all I could use was Dove or Ivory (but Ivory dries your skin a little much for my taste), or I would be itching all over. Even if the soap isn't effecting you via gluten, some soaps have very harsh perfumes that can really affect someone with allergies. Good luck!!

I don't have DH so am only concerned with what I ingest. But, we have used Dial for decades. I like an antibacterial deoderant soap with a mild scent. Can't stand Irish Spring or Ivory type soaps, I almost can't breathe using them.

There are 17 ingredients listed on the package of Dial Clean & Refresh (rinses clean without drying skin) Spring Water. None sound like a gluten containing ingredient. Also, it's more reasonably priced than many others. "I'm glad I use Dial"! :rolleyes:

best regards, lm

It's driving me crazy right now too.Maybe it is the perfume because after using Dove for 2 days I feel a little better already.

Thank you lm. It's probably something else like the perfume in the soap. If the Pink Dove I'm using now doesn't work I'll have to try the unscented one for sensitive skin.

Joni, Get yourself some Everyday African Soap! or perhaps consider adding a Grapefruit Lime Peppermint Cleansing Bar to your cart..... :ph34r::lol:

Just kidding...I don't know anything about dial, sorry (but I've heard others complain about it here). I do like Kiss My Face olive oil soap though. It has like two ingredients. :) Hope your itchiness gets better soon.

:lol: Mango, maybe I should!

I've seen Kiss My Face mentioned- where do you get it?

You can find it at most health food stores, or if your drug store has a "natural" section, you can usually find it there (I've found it at CVS and Longs). It's seriously an awesome soap, and very inexpensive. I use it on my face and one bar lasts forever.

Ooooooh, I found Kiss My Face in Shoprite today! I knew they had a section with healthy soaps, etc and I found it there. I also found out all of Toms of Maine products are gluten free except 2! They are listed on their website and Shoprite has a rather large area with a ton of these products.

I'm doing the happy dance!!! :)

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
