Emu Oil- Work For Anyone Else?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have yet to be tested for DH although I definitely have some kind of gluten related autoimmune skin problem which sounds like DH. I'll be seeing a naturopath recommended by someone on this forum, so I'm crossing my fingers I get some clarity on what is going on. In the meantime, I'm curious if any of you have had luck using emu oil on your rash? I started using it last week and have had amazing results. So I'm posting in case it will help someone else, and also to see if other's DH responds to it, then it might help determine that this is what I have.

Hi Bubbleye - I'm curious about the emu oil. Are you using it when you first see an eruption of DH or does it work on the scabbed over ones?

Also, where do you buy emu oil? Which brand are you using?

Thank you!

I have tried Emu oil & it has not made a bit of difference for me as to helping to stop the itching. So my question would be the same as PDB*DH above.

I'm using100% emu oil by a company called Laid in Montana. I got it from the homeopathic pharmacy here in Santa Monica, but you can also buy it online: http://www.montanaemuranch.com/100-pure-montana-emu-oil/

I started using it on a bad break out (on my face) about a week ago and immediately the sting and itch went away and the little blisters are dry and almost flaked off. I've been using it all over my face twice/day since. I've felt the tingle of new eruption but they haven't materialized. Either this stuff is a miracle for me, or I would have gone into remission anyway. Hard to tell but I know I'm way more comfortable since using it. Hope it works for someone else. I went to Dr. today (really great one) who is also convinced it is in fact DH that I have.

An update after using the emu oil for a couple of weeks now: I have gotten new blisters, but the emu oil seems to help my skin overall feel more comfortable and the breakouts seem more contained.

I have found moisturizing DH lesions, especially while healing, speeds healing and discomfort. And keeping skin happy and healthy seems to ease discomfort and reaction overall.

The benefit to Emu oil may be that it's animal fat - thus probably low in salicylates and I assume additives (perfumes, etc. that sometimes irritates rashes). So, it would probably be better than a fruit or nut oil for salicylate sensitive DH sufferers.

BTW I'd been using almond oil/Shea salve on the DH on my hand and it starting inflaming it. I stopped and just used Vanicream and now it's almost healed. Sometimes we do stupid things - should have known better.

Whatever I have on my neck, I have some Barleans organic coconut oil and slathered some on my neck last night and whatever it is looks so much better today.

    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
