Hi, I just wanted to add a note to this topic I found out that using jojoba

oil and almond oil works great i had a bottle of it for my cuticles, somebody mentioned tea tree oil and that stung so I tried the jojoba oil and it has worked great I don't itch very much at all now. I also notice when I do get stressed out I itch, or when I eat yeast. so now I try not to eat gluten or yeast. still having trouble giving up my wine, I did find red wine did'nt bother it as much, but beringers wine made me itch within 5 minutes. I gave up so much I know I have to give up the wine but I'm struggling hard with it. laurie anne.

I did have some terrible problems with itchy skin and blisters on my hands and buttocks, and some of it proved to be DH, but I saw an alergist and found out I have developed some food allergies that I never had before to coconut, eggs, milk, nuts, etc. Getting this undercontrol really helped. The allergist thought because I have non-responsive celiac that it might have caused or added to the allergic reaction.

;) to all of you that are having itchie problems. my family has a history of VERY DRY skin. to make a long story short, my son who has not been diagnosed yet with celiac disease has the same horrible dry skin and it would almost look like eczema. well, we/he has been gluten-free for about 4 months now and we just deal with the dry skin. the ONLY thing that works for us is pure glycerin. you have to get in the pharmacies and usually have to order it and wait for it to come in. i promise it is worth every penny spent on it.

to apply it, take a shower/bath and DO NOT dry off. rub the glycerin on you and pat yourself dry. you will feel a little sticky. but i'll take sticky any day over itchy.

hope this helps you all. let me know. i have a place i can get it cheap if anyone is having problems.

Hi everyone. I just found your messages and want to share my experience (no need to say I'm gluten-free for my celiac disease).

For skin:

KISS MY FACE. They have very good soaps, i.a. Olive & Herbal Soap, some other olive soaps. They are gluten-free though some others are not.

AVALON ORGANIC BOTANICALS. Facical Cleansing Gel (also good for shaving). Hydrating Toner. Moisture Plus Lotion with SPF 18. They have other products for other types of skin (mine is combination).

NATURE'S GATE. Fragrance-Free Moisturizing Lotion (For Sensitive Skin) with Aloe Vera, Extracts of Coffee and Wild Pansy, Safflower Oil & Organic Jojoba Oil.

For hair:

PURE & BASIC. Natural Clarifying Shampoo. Natural Lite Conditioner.

For lacerations, cuts, scrapes:

DESERT ESSENCE. Eco-Harvest Tea Tree Anti-Microbial Cream with Green Tea Extract (I have severe allergy to lots of antibiotics and iodine so can't use almost none of existing antiseptic creams and ointments).

All of those products are natural, organic, don't contain that s... acid. I finally got some relief of dry itchy skin though I don't have DH but often have skin allergy for lots of other allergens (food and in medications). I started using all of them after my last gluten accident which was really severe, when I grabbed all of my skin/cosmetic stuff, placed in a bag and gave to my girlfrien who does not have to watch gluten intake, and bought what I just listed above. That was about two months ago, and now I have no complaints regarding my new stuff.

Hope it'll help you.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
