After getting frustrated that my DH is not improving for quite awhile, although I am being very strict about the diet and CC, I googled about pink Himalayan salt, and it turns out it DOES contain iodine. I was confused because iodine is not added to it like most salt. it just occurs naturally in it. I geuss it is just very ancient sea salt! I wish I would have looked into it before!
I remember my scalp doing better when I was using no salt at all.
Yesterday I got some kosher salt which says no iodine on the package. Another setback!
The cool thing about the pink salt is it contains lots of minerals, but unfortunatly for me, iodine is in there too
goes to show, you can't be too extreme about checking and double checking everything if you want to do everything required to get better when you have celiac and DH
the only family member I have who is supportive towards me at all, my step mom, told me that she thought I was being too extreme about my diet. Ha! If only I was being extreme enough!

If your scalp calmed down without the use of salt you may want to drop it for a bit. Once you have been a while without any outbreaks you can add it back in. I know how miserable you must be and I hope things clear up for you soon.

I'm noticing a HUGE difference in less than a week after switching to the kosher salt with no iodine. I noticed a significant difference in two days!My scalp is way less itchy, Ive been taking pictures with my phone to see how it's doing, because it's mostly on the back of my head, and can't see it in the mirror. I'm so excited about this actually getting better, especially after pretty much resigning myself to dealing with this nightmare forever many times!
