What's The Difference Between Dh And Dandruff On Head

Recommended Posts

HI,

I used Salsun Blue today to help with an itch head I 've been having. It's worse tonight then it's been this week. I've been itching it all day and I noticed tonight that it's a bit bloody on top. I get these patches of itches and bumps. Of course I itch them and the bumps get wet. I was wondering what the difference is between dh on the head and dandruff.

I used to have dandruff but now that I am gluten-free, it went away. It does come back if I use certain hair products. Definitely ones that have wheat in them but also ones that I suspect must have some gluten in them. So I am wondering if what I had was really DH or a wheat allergy.

When I did have it, I discovered that using vinegar on my head got rid of the itching for a few weeks. I put vinegar on my scalp, let it sit for 20 - 30 minutes and then washed my hair as usual. Sometimes, I had to do it again in a few days, but most of the time, it lasted for weeks.

Also, if you haven't tried them, there are products that you can use during the day to put on the itchy spots that help. I think Head and Shoulders makes one but there is another one, too. I am not sure if these are gluten-free.

Hi, this is my post today to an issue raised under a differnet section. It might help. The mix I happened up on is pure bliss!!! It sounds like you have exactly what I had on the scalp. If I get back on the gluten/gliadin it erupts every three weeks.

Hi there,

I was diagnosed with psoriasis 30 years ago but I always refused to believe I had it. Anyway after a LOOOOONG time I determined that I had Dermatitis Herpetiformis, and so when I went of Gluten/gliadin. I now have no problems. I tried just about everything to help myself as I was just having to pour Betnovate all over my scalp every three weeks. I also had problems on my face (cheeks, eyebrows, folds of the nose and in my ears). Eventually (until I worked out what the real problem was) I used to get full relief from a 50/50 mixture of organic apple cider vinegar and isopropyl alcohol. Some mixed in honey also worked (but not on the scalp!!!). I still use the mix as an aftershave. Checkout ACV on WWW. Also, try giving Green Tea a go as a wash.
