Help For Dry Skin/rashes

8 posts in this topic

I do not have DH but I do have terribly dry skin and problems so I thought I'd toss these out.

Johnson & Johnson First Aid Cream is what I use, almost anything else seems to irritate problem areas. It will act as a moisturizer and aids healing, and is not real greasy.

Lanacane has a similar vehicle or base, but contains something that acts like a mild anesthetic.

If the skin is only dry, with no rash or whatever I use Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion - some others seem to bother.

Minimizing contact with water can help also, chlorine acts as a drying agent, and the ph levels of water vary quite a bit - even rinsing my hair daily sends my scalp into orbit.

a friend of mine told me that her son's orthodontist told her...toothpaste has SLS - sodium lauryl sulfate in it. The ortho said that some people get ulcers or sores in their mouths because from the SLS. So switch to a toothpaste that doesn't have SLS in it and see if that helps.

You should get a biopsy of your mouth. I didn't know I had celiacs until I woke up one morning with the inside of my mouth all enflamed. Long-story-short...

They did a biopsy, discovered I had Oral Lichen Planus, which is chronic, incurable, and only occurs in people whose immune system is compromised. That promted a lot of tests which finally resulted in my being diagnosed with Celiacs. There is no cure or real treatment for either disease, but if you can get the Celiacs under control, and keep your mouth really clean, there's a chance it will go away on its own.

I have found that using normal toothpastes and mouthwashes aggravates it. Alcohol and peroxide inflame it. Sugar seems to feed it.

If you have little white veins in the lining of your cheeks, blisters, and maybe redness or roughness in places along the gum line, you probably have it, but a biopsy is necessary to rule out cancer, and two other similar diseases that are much more dangerous.

If your doctor diagnoses you with Lichen Planus, there isn't much they can do to help you. What has helped me a lot is using Tea Tree Oil toothpaste and mouthwash that I buy at the health food store. I also make sure I brush, floss and gargle several times a day, and take it easy on sweets. It has dialed it way back and seems to keep it in check. I am working on the Celiacs, and as I get better at avoiding Gluten, I think the lichen planus is losing its grip. It appears to be healing slowly, but it's very aggressive. I have to be dilligent about keeping my mouth clean and limiting my sugar intake. Not easy on a diet based on rice.

I hope you don't have it, but you should definitely see a doctor about it.

Yes do rule out mouth/tongue cancer... my brother has no mouth cancer risk factors, has never smoked and is not and has never been a alcoholic and he is battling mouth cancer right now.... it started with just a small white spot on his tongue, its certainly not common, so don't freak out.... but rule out the bad stuff.

Just as an FYI so far my brother is doing ok!

Thanks for all the messages concerning mouth blisters. For sure I will ask the Doctor about this problem on Monday.

Sometimes my blisters act like a allergy reaction, or at least during regular allergy outbreak. Come to think about it I have both everyday so this isn't really a viable thought.

Chronic :rolleyes:

    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?
      My 6 year old just got prescribed an antibiotic (keflex) and is the liquid pink stuff they give kids.  I just realized I didn't ask if it was gluten free when I picked it up from the pharmacy!  Anyone know if I should be concerned?  Does that pink stuff have gluten?
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      We suspect my 6 year old cannot tolerate gluten-free oats either... do we need to treat them just like wheat as far as CC issues?  Should I not cook oatmeal in pots that we prepare her food in?

      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it

      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
