Took Chlorophyll
0

8 posts in this topic

My chiropractor, who is excellent, sold me some chlorophyll for a burn. Well, I took one pill after already covering my burn with it topically, and I was a sick puppy. Several days later, the burn is still not healed, looks like it might scar, and I have a bumpy red rash still on my chest.

I've been using Neosporin Plus, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Anyone know what I should do to clear up the rash?

Do you mean that the chlorophyll tablet had gluten somewhere in it? If your rash was DH, there's not much to do but wait for it to go away.

For the burn, try lavender oil. It's one of the few essential oils that's safe to apply directly to your skin and works wonders on burns.

This is the only thing that relieves the burning sensation so far. Thanks.

If the rash is DH as the other poster said it will go away in time.

How large and deep was the burn? If it was larger than a quarter and blistered it might be a good idea to have your GP look at it.

As for the Neosporin Plus can you get plain neosporin instead? I haven't called on it recently but a while back when I called the company they said the Vitamin E may be sourced from wheat germ oil and advised me to get the plain form instead.

Thank you. I had not though of that, but it could be the reason because the hives have gotten bigger, redder, and burn more and more.

I went to the doctor today. He told me to take Benedryl and did not give me anything to apply on it. Just said Neosporin if I wanted to keep it moist. I took a Benedry. It is still burning.

Thanks for the Neosporin update. I will start back using Bacitracin.

I have problems with Neosporin. Regular and also the one with Pramoxin (topical pain reliever) in it. I have heard that many people are sensitive to the neomycin. It makes my lesions more itchy.

I use Polysporin instead and avoid all products with Pramoxine. The Polysporin is an ointment so it works to keep the lesion moist.

Thank you. I may try that. The Bacitracin is having no affect whatsoever. Still itchy and painful and red as the dickens.

    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
