Itching From Shampoo With Barley?
Posted 03 January 2005 - 03:20 PM
I have not been officially diagnosed as having celiac disease, but my endocrinologist suspects I do have it based on my history.
In the past I'd used my husbands shampoo and I remember getting itchy in my arm pits later in the day after shaving with it (yes, I use shampoo to shave with) in the morning. I'd stopped using it a year or more ago because I figured something in it gave me an allergic reaction. Now since I face the possibility of having celiac disease, I read the ingredients and it contains barley! I tried it again... this morning I shaved with it and now, this evening my legs and tops of my feet are itchy. There is no rash (even when it bothered my arm pits, there was no rash). Has anyone had this reaction?

time, no rash, just itched. After going gluten-free I read all the labels
and my shampoo (Nexxus) contained wheat. I stopped using
it and switched to Garnier Fructis and now no more itch.
The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Especially being glutenfree I am more sensitive. When I am at shows and someone spills their beer on me (and I can't go to the washroom) I get a rash on my skin, blech!
