In Topic: Contact Dermatitis

07 April 2005 - 05:42 AM

Don't know about anybody else, but besides the DH (which is much better after 3 years gluten-free) I also get contact dermatitis from stuff I touch. We are redoing our floors and a lot of our stuff needs refurbishing. So a couple of days ago I began taking old velcro off of geode slices that were on the wall. I was using Goo Gone and about 6 hours later my hands began to itch and the next day they were completely red, sore and itchy. It is now subsiding, but my hands feel like sandpaper now. That's what I get for not using surgical gloves. Shirley

Hello, I'm a newbie, and it's nice to know I'm not going crazy. I used a new liquid orange pledge the other day, and blistered the next day. If I forget to put gloves on, and clean up bread crumbs I blister. I thought I was super sensitive, and others would say that touching gluten does not affect you. It does me.

I have DH along with the other symptoms but one that hasn't been addressed by anyone else is mouth and back of the throat blisters. Do any of the readers have this exrtreme problem. Chronic

Yes have gotten them in my mouth. They are miserable :( . Not sure what to do about them once I get them.

In Topic: Newly Gluten Free - Need Input

For severe DH flare ups, I soak in Aveeno Oatmeal baths. It really helps me. I use a steroid ointment for flare ups also. I have been Gluten Free for about 8 months. My DH symptoms were always worse than my GI symptoms, but it was worth going gluten-free to get rid of the rash. My rash disappeared completely just a few weeks after I went gluten-free. I have had a few flare ups, but I can always trace them to something I ate. I never went on Dapsone, but I will if I need it in the future. Good Luck. With years of gluten inside you, it may take a while to rid your system!

Hello, I'm a newbie, but I was wondering how you could take an oatmeal bath if that is one of the things us DH people are supposed to avoid?? <_<

I am a newbie, and have had to wear gloves when I clean up crumbs from my kids. Also shampoos & Conditioners are killing me. Make up too. I have been diagnosed with DH since July 2004. Contact reaction is a definate for me.

Thank you for the advise, I am going to do the trial and error thing. I have been trying to do a lot more reading, and learning. Does anyone know where I can get a list that tells me what ingredients are derived from? On the cosmetics, and shampoo's etc. they have all the ingredients, but they are a foriegn language to me. I have been diagnosed with DH since july 2004. It has been a long road for me, but I am learning :D Thanks for all your support.
