Itching From Shampoo With Barley?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever become itchy after using a shampoo with wheat or barley in it?

I have not been officially diagnosed as having celiac disease, but my endocrinologist suspects I do have it based on my history.

In the past I'd used my husbands shampoo and I remember getting itchy in my arm pits later in the day after shaving with it (yes, I use shampoo to shave with) in the morning. I'd stopped using it a year or more ago because I figured something in it gave me an allergic reaction. Now since I face the possibility of having celiac disease, I read the ingredients and it contains barley! I tried it again... this morning I shaved with it and now, this evening my legs and tops of my feet are itchy. There is no rash (even when it bothered my arm pits, there was no rash). Has anyone had this reaction?

Thanks!

Lisa

Before going gluten-free the skin on my scalp itched all the

time, no rash, just itched. After going gluten-free I read all the labels

and my shampoo (Nexxus) contained wheat. I stopped using

it and switched to Garnier Fructis and now no more itch.

I get a rash and itchy scalp, too, when I use Aussie shampoo (wheat clearly labled on the back).

Especially being glutenfree I am more sensitive. When I am at shows and someone spills their beer on me (and I can't go to the washroom) I get a rash on my skin, blech!
