Wheat In Body Products

02 July 2007 - 05:22 AM

Hey all. Its been a while! HA! Anywho, I was wondering if any of you could tell me some of the names of the ingrediants that are in lotions, shampoos, body washes, etc that have wheat in them. I had a list and lost it. And now Victoria's Secret is having a sale on body products and I want to go nuts but can't remember the names of the ingrediants that are in them to make them unusable by us, good ol' celiac folks. I appreciate any information that you could send my way! Thanks all.

Aveeno Body Wash Has Gluten

28 April 2007 - 02:15 PM

Hey all! Well turns out that I use Aveeno body wash and guess what...it has wheat in it!! SO I was pretty much just rubbing wheat right on my DH! Great eh! hahaha I have stopped using it and my DH has improved immensly in two days! I also recieved an email and it told me to look for these four things in my body products:

1. TRITICUM VULGARE (wheat bran)
2. SECALE CEREALE (rye seed extract)
3. HORDEUM VULGARE (barley)
4. AVENA SATIVA (oat bran)

I went through all of my products and had to get rid of 9 lotions and shampoo's and conditioners. So becareful when you get new bath products. I was completley surprised to see that most of my lotion had avena sativa, :blink: so be sure and check out your stuff if you have DH and it doesn't seem to want to go away! Good luck all.

Formotab

25 April 2007 - 04:29 PM

I was playing around on the internet the other day and found this medication called Formotab. I think its made in Scotland, but not too sure. I think if u just throw a .com after the name it should come right up. Has anyone heard of this? Used it? Did it work?? I am pretty much at the end of my sanity and I think if someone told me to rub celery or something on my DH I would probably do it! hahaha so let me know. thanks all...

Dh And My Sanity!

25 April 2007 - 04:14 PM

Hi, I guess a little background since this is my first post EVER on any thing like this. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005 and never really stuck to the diet until about a few months ago. About a year ago I started getting these rashes on the creases of my elbows and on my thighs. I didn't think about it, but long story short, it turned out to be DH. I have been going to the dr. and at first he gave me tetracycline and I had an allergic reaction to that, my neck swelled up and was extremely itchy to the point of pain. Then the Dr. gave me Dapsone only 50mg a day and two days ago the left side of my neck swelled a little, not to the level that it did before but is stil itchy and painful. My legs are covered in DH spots and rashes. I can't take this stupid itching anymore, I have been staying on a strict gluten free diet for about two months and it has only gotten worse. I was also perscribed a lotion triamcinolone acetonide and its pretty much worthless.I have tried almost every anit itch creame on the market and nothing is helping. I am about to lose my mind!! HA! Someone please give some advice or something. Thank you so much. By the way I am so excited that I found this site, I knew I wasnt the only person with this but i don't know anyone else and this place makes me feel not so alone in dealing with this! Thanks again.
