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.

    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms

      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Maybe check if they have any local gluten free/ Celiac Facebook groups?  Someone just posted on ours for this same thing and got some responses.

      Maybe not true for you....but that doesn't mean all Celiacs can't eat it.  Does it?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
