It would be a good idea to add a good gluten free multivitamin to the B12. What are you eating? Mostly whole unprocessed foods will help you heal and absorb more from your food. Are you using topical products with gluten ingredients? If so you may want to avoid them for a bit and see if that helps your skin clear up.

Hi!Once I read somewhere online that brittle nails with ridges in them are the sign of iron deficiency. I had brittle nail and I was iron deficient. Maybe you can check that.
Before I went gluten free I had trouble with acne for 5 years. I found out what was causing mine. It was milk. I reduced the intake of milk product rapidly. Soon I ate somothing with milk in it, next day I had big acne on my face. Milk was my trigger for acne. I don't eat nothing with casein in it and my face is clean again.
I also had trouble with gas and .... after I drank milk or ate ice cream. I tought that I'm milk intolerant. In July 2010 I had test for milk allergy. I tested positive for milk(casein).
Try to abvoid lactose and casein for maybe two months and you might see the improvement. Anyway we should avoid lactose, or milk when we go gluten free.

Me too. If I consume dairy, my face will break out the next day.
