Skin Problems And Cd

7 posts in this topic

I dont really know what i can and Cannot have when it comes to body care supplies. I mainly try to keep away from things that dont have any dairy or wheats in them but really I have no idea what has what in it. Is there a list somewhere?

I have some skin issues but I do not think it is terribly severe most of the time, but I have my days where i do noting but struggle fighting the urge to scratch it etc. I itch like crazy and have bumps but its not severe as in bleeding or what not. My daughter has it as well.. Should I test her for celiac disease. The doc looked at it a few years back and said it looked like exzema but that was before I knew I had celiac disease. He prescribed her with a creme. I dont use anything on mine though... Should I?

When it get into the tub it hurts where the water touches... almost stings like needles.. and itches everywhere else. Is this normal? I hate shaving because my legs break out in rashes that are terribly itchy even when i use the most expensive razors...... and when i put on clean clothes I itch as well, espically on my elbows and knees.... Is that normal?

Whats wrong with me!??! Is this all normal? Should I do something about it? :huh:

I too get this reaction with water as well as from shaving. Do you get it in the ocean? My skin really reacts to the salt water. I am usually itchy after a shower. I am trying a rice protein soap (no wheat or gluten)-- it is actually a shampoo but I have been using it as a soap too and I haven't been itchy the last few showers. The other night I used gillette shaving gel and a new blade along with only the rice shampoo. All was ok. I did not use cream no matter how much my skin needs it. I think usually when I shave I get soap on my legs that must contain something in it that bothers me. I have yet to find a cream that will soothe it, most make it worse. I get itchy bumps and everywhere I scratch the lines are red and raised. Lovely. I have been told the causes are Dermatic Graphism, seborreah (spelling?), linear iga bullous dermatosis (blistering disease), foliculitis, hypothyroidism (this can make your skin dry and itchy I am told) etc. I do not take meds for any of these "conditions" as I am trying to find a natural way to combat the itch. It was so awful a month after my first baby was born I thought I would scratch my skin off-- 6 years and two more babies-- I am still searching for a cure. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Went to the doc today.... Didnt say much other than the skin rashs are all over so its probably an allergy to something. Possibly just the weather she says. I say shes nuts. I have been like this all winter and last summer as well. Its not the weather change. Uuuugh. She says just to put some eucerin creme on it and that'll help. HELLO I ALREADY DO! lol. And she prescribed me some benedryl sorta thing for the allergies thinking that may help. Whatever?

This make sense?

I forgot to mention the change of weather thing-- I've gotten that one too. It is really dry in my house but I still get it in the humidity. I also have it all year round. I don't think it is the weather. Perhaps a chemical sensitivity. People tell me to use Dove but that makes me itch like mad. Who knows? I'll let you know how this rice protein shampoo goes.

Please do because I could use anything to stop this itching. Most soaps irritate so if this is gross im sorry but I dont use it except on my privates. Otherwise I just break out and feel yucky. I just try to use water and wash myself down at least once a day. Also I wash my hair and let the shampooey (lol) water run down me to that helps a little. Maybe it sounds gross but I dont stink and I get better results.

I do the same thing! I never (unless absolutely necessary) scrub my skin with soap. Usually just the necessary areas. The shampoo is really nice. When I get a second I will post the name.

Hey ladies i find only soaps I can use weithout itching is dove white or sensitive skin, and any of the bath n body works shower gels! Now shave creams forget it! I have tried them all and all give me itchy bumps all up and down legs and I have itched those until I have bled in my sleep ack! I use the bath n body works gel on my legs and newest thing I have been using is my daughters gerber or johnsons baby washes! I read somewhere else on here that celiacs should not cause you unable to use wheat/gluten containing shampoo, soaps,lotions so may be something else in them causing the itchies. Although who knows there are different severities correct?

    • 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 in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from 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! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
