Might Be A Stupid Question...

Recommended Posts

i am kinda new to this... so if you don't have the skin form of this disease... then are you less likely to have to watch your shampoos and lotions?? i have been using my same shampoo and lotion and maybe thats why i'm still sick... is there a list of mainstream shampoos and such that are safe??

While you may be less likely to notice a glutening from skin/hair care products, internal damage would still be occurring AFAIK. As for a list of mainstream gluten-free products, I believe the member named NoGluGirl has one, which a search would hopefully turn up.

<EDIT>

Here's a post with the list I was referring to:

I use Dove shampoo, conditioner and styling gel, and the horrible itchiness I used to get on my scalp is usually gone now (and I don't think I have DH).

No. The reason is simple, if your lotion has gluten in it, and you put it on your hands, then you pick up a gluten-free food item... you see where this is going? You just added gluten to your gluten-free food. Same with shampoo. Its well know that you never get it all out of your hair, so during the day if you ever touch your gluten covered hair, then food, bam! Glutened again. 1001 other ways these could be a problem... thats just to give you an idea.

You want EVERYTHING to be gluten free. No exceptions, ever.

Yep, you've got to wash your hands.

The best thing to do is to get into the habit of washing your hands before you eat or put them anywhere near your mouth.
