I was diagnosed with celiac June 2006 and gut symptoms cleared up within two weeks. I was, however, experiencing non-situational depression that did not resolve gluten-free. Was told by a support group friend who was diagnosed at Mayo that she was told there that it usually takes at least 18 months gluten-free for celiac related depression to resolve (maybe leaky gut?, dunno).
I decided to try to speed up the depression process in January 2007 by eliminating casein as well in case leaky gut was slowing the depression progress (casein free didn't help my depression, btw. It took about 2 yrs totally clear). But I have seborrheic dermatitis that occurs yearly from late winter on into the July. Occurs on eyelids and is severe under arms. In 2007 while casein free, the seb derm didn't flare up at all.
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm flaring up now and about to go back casein free which I hate, hate, hate. Gluten-free is "a piece of cake " for me, but casein free is horrible due to my love for cheese and it's an additive for so many foods - even ones that don't list milk as an allergen at the end of ingredients.
If anyone else has tried and had success with seb derm and casein free?
Thanks much! -L

I went gluten-free and my scalp improved, but now that I am CF too, I only have a tiny, tiny patch on the crown of my head. When I've tested dairy, I have noticed my skin gets worse. My main reaction to dairy seems to be skin issues, acne and excema. I have not noticed the patch getting any worse,
I've had a lot of benefit from being off dairy,(skin and menstrual cycle improvements) so it has been a worthwhile change for me. If you had asked me this a year ago, I would never have thought I would do it.
Hope this helps.

Ok, ..I'm not a coeliac (hubby and son are)..but discovered my skin probs improved dramatically if I ate gluten-free........... but I noticed if I ate alot of dairy I could immediately feel 'the tingle/burn'.
I did a trial run of dairy free and ALL my skin probs disappeared..........but as you say gluten-free is a doddle but dairy UGH!!!!!
I've got to get off these steroid creams (which aren't working!)
