and i know i've been gluten-free for 9 months but been still around on fingers and slowly spreading. Maybe from being a waiter touching gluten all day?
Thanks for the help

It's more likely that if you're touching gluten all day, you're accidentally getting small amounts into your mouth. I'm sure it's impossible for you to wash your hands every time you touch it.
Some people have reported being soothed somewhat by anti-itch creams or aloe, but the only thing that will heal the sores is being gluten-free or taking dapsone.

I do not use the dapsone, but I take warm baths with Shaklee's Basic H as a bubble bath. I also will add 1 tsp clorox to the water to kill any bacteria in the sores. I keep mine soft and moist using either Clindamycin gel from the dermatologist or a petrocarb gel from Watkins. When I am out of that, I just use Vaseline. Anything to keep them moist and not get that extra itch from the tightness and stretching. I keep Vistaril around for my true allergic reactions. It also seems to help some with the itch so Benedryl might.
9 yrs gluten-free
