How Careful Do I Have To Be?

Recommended Posts

I recently went to see a dr in a dermatologists office (he wasn't a derm) about all the itchy spots I have been getting since going gluten-free. He said it wasn't DH, but it was related to gluten. Then I took my 22m old dd to an allergist and we were discussing various symptoms, and i mentioned my itchy spots. He said it was most likely DH and I should get a biopsy. So I plan on making an appt w/ the derm dr on Monday (it will take 3+ months to get in to see her!)

So my question is, how careful do I have to be? We have been making sure my youngest has been eating gluten (so we can test her for celiac disease). Is it safe to touch her and clean her up after she has had gluten? She is only 12m, so she gets messy when she eats. And are there any other "restrictions" like bandaids, iodine, etc?? I can't find any info out on this.

Thanks,

ptkds

Obviously you are going to have to handle your baby. There is no way around that. The nature of babies is a very hands on. Besides they learn by being touched, that is how they develop. Poor baby if she has got to eat gluten for such a long time. I can understand your delimma, maybe wear gloves and protective clothing. Judy

It might be a lotion or soap that you are using, you can phone the companies directly and ask them. The suggestion for gloves was a good one too.

I hope the testing is over soon and you have the answers you need.
