Gluten-Free one month - Skin Issues

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am new to the glutten-free diet FOR ABOUT 6 WEEKS because I am trying to find a way to clear up my seborrheic dermatitis that I have since I was a teenager. Recently, it is all over my face as well, usually after light sun exposure. The dandruff is annoying and I was checking to see if it because of gluten. I really do not notice any difference with my skin. It has not helped. Should I give it more time?

Is 6 weeks enough time to start seeing results?

I don't want to be on any medicines. Shampoo's help, but not with my face. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

I too have the sd and have not seen relief from it after being gluten-free for 9 years. It has gotten better, but never quite goes away.  I think there are some others who have the same issue. It may be more linked to milk products, cow milk specifically. I gave up cow milk for the first year being gluten-free as I couldn't tolerate it. I still use ketaconozole for my hair and the cream which I can't recall the name, is it desonide? several times per week, and they do help. I got these by prescription from a dermatologist.

Hi!  Skin problems often are related to vitamin deficiencies.

I found this article helpful.  

Pellagra is a deficiency in niacin.  One symptom is a rash when exposed to sunlight.  You might be nutrient deficient.  A good B complex vitamin may help.

G'day and welcome :)

Going gluten free helped but it didn't get rid of the SD. The best shampoo was Nizoral due to the Ketonacazole active ingredient. I also find dairy, especially milk is really not good for my skin. Check this thread out too: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/75943-seborrheic-dermatitis/#comment-977173
