I have been gluten free for four years , I still have DH outbreaks but they are not as extensive as they used to be.  I do still wake up every nite with terrible itching which causes scratching to excess. The hot humid weather of summer makes it all the worse.  My worst areas are buttocks and forearms.  I have not had clear skin for at least 7 years.  I figure this had been building for so many years that it will take many years to disappear.  It does not seem to matter what I apply to my skin, nothing really helps.  I have never taken dapsone.

In Topic: Help Me With Pie Crusts!

I don't remember where I got this recipe but I have used it a couple times and it seems to work ok.  I changed a couple ingredients, this is exactly what I used.

1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

6 Tbsp cold lard

1 egg

2 tsp lemon juice

mix all dry ingredients & butter until crumbly, then add egg & lemon juice.  Mix until it all holds together.

Shape into a ball , put between 2 pieces of wax paper, roll to desired thickness, remove 1 sheet wax paper, flip into pie plate, remove other sheet of wax paper & shape as needed.

It worked fine. I have not made a pie with a top crust using this recipe.  I made a pumpkin and pecan pie  using this recipe.

Good luck!

I am self diagnosed DH. The only 2 places I have NOT had a breakout are the palms of my hand and the soles of my feet. I tend to break out the worst in the same areas.  My worst areas are the underside of my lower arms and the backside of my upper legs.  I do get scattered break outs in other places, but the ones I mentioned are the worst.

In Topic: Protopic Cream For Dh

Yes, it's only on prescription. But it's a good alternative to steroid creams and for me it really works on the eczema and dry parts of the skin, though I'm not sure if it works for the blisters/lesions yet. 

Have you ever used emu oil on your skin? Reason I ask is I bought a container of "blue goo" today.  It is for cracked heels and hand. The 2 advertised ingredients are emu oil & beeswax. I have never used emu oil before & thought my skin can't get worse using it so I bought some. I just applied some so have no idea how it will work. I'll give it a few days and see what happens.

In Topic: Best Home Made gluten-free Flour Mixes For Baking

13 March 2014 - 03:44 PM

I don't do much baking, but what I have done is cookies, quick breads, muffins.  I don't have many choices living in a small town w/1 grocery store.  I have used Bobs redmill all purpose baking flour.  That has seemed to be ok for those.  I have not tried bread and have never been a bread fan so I don't know how it would be for that.
