Steroid And Antifungal Cream
0

10 posts in this topic

Have had rash since July and GP thought it was shingles. In Sept I we t to dermatologist who barely looked at it and said "dermatitis with some fungal thrown in for good measure. He gave me steroid cream and antifungal cream. The first 2 days the rashes improved then was kind of neutral for a bit. Now the part where the rash has always been is paler pink and the new edges (it has expanded) are darker pink. Any ideas anyone?

You're gluten-free, right?

Try a low iodine diet and see if it helps. If it does, that's a good indicator of DH. I saw results in a few days...stayed strict for 2 weeks and have been adding iodine back. So far so good. Occasional irritated patch but no big breakout like before low iodine.

Yes, I have been gluten free for almost 3 weeks. An odd thing is that, other than dairy & legumes, protein sources have all begun to taste like yucky fish. I am already worried about the decrease in protein in my diet. Does all dairy have iodine?

Apparently, yes, due to feed and cleaning methods.

You can try cutting down vs. eliminating. Pay attention to salt (use non iodized), eggs can have huge amounts of iodine... I found carageenan (seaweed used as thickener) to be a top offender for me as well as potato chips. Eliminate what you can, see what happens.

Thx for the info. Don't have to worry about eggs because all of a sudden they taste disgusting to me. I will go ahead and reduce iodine where I can.

Since you have been a wealth of knowledge I have another question for you...

What is the celiac/gluten free stance on legumes? I have always thought that legumes are a great source of protein and fiber. The MS "best bet" diet says that legumes shouldn't be eaten unless sprouted.

I have no idea. I've assumed they are safe as long as no added gluten (such as in canned seasoned beans). Some people may have problems digesting them at first, or may have an intolerance (like milk,eggs). Some super sensitive people may run into dry bulk beans that have been processed in gluten facilities, and have problems.

Also, check your skin care products. Especially for seaweed!!

I will reread the article and let you know what I figure out. In thinking back it may have said that it is best to be gluten free and remove legumes from your diet as 2 seperate things. Somehow linking the protein in legumes with leaky gut.

It is the Paleolithic Diet that I was reading about. It is gluten free and then some.

I love beans. I've never understood the aversion to them unless someone is intolerant. They're cheap, full of nutrients, and have fiber that meat lacks. I love em.

I also am very sensitive to iodine. Even before I knew about celiac, I gave up dairy and my skin cleared SO MUCH. if only I'd known about gluten sooner!! That was the last piece of the puzzle. Now I think it was more the iodine in dairy bothering me rather than the milk itself. (although milk makes it hard to breathe so I'm good with staying away.)

My husband has a clarifying shampoo with sea kelp and it caused the worst flareup when I used it, plus little flareups if I sleep on him after a shower. It doesn't take much iodine to react apparently!
