Does anyone else have dry skin as a result of being on the diet. It took nearly three years for my diagnosis and I used to have horrible skin as a result, especially on my scalp. Since being on the diet, it got better but I notice that when I over-exert myself that it gets agitated again.

Does anyone have any suggestions to help me clear this issue up?

;) yup--that's just one of the symptoms of celiacs, at least many of us have this problem---lotions that are gluten free of course and drink lots of water--just about all we can do--i always put lotion on after my shower and sometimes during the day if needed---my hands are the worst, they crack and bleed sometimes, especially in winter :( deb

I was recently diagnosed in Sept and have been gluten-free since then. I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about this stuff, and a reoccuring theme is that we can't absorb essential fatty acids along with everything else. I began taking fish oil and flax seed. I had a terribly dry scalp. My skin was so dry that my clothes would rub terrible places on it during the winter. My scalp and skin have both cleared up. Only thing that I have noticed is that since going gluten-free, if I get a tiny whiff of gluten, I react....and now I think my makeup has it in it. So I am throwing the lot out and getting more. I think Clinique is supposed to be gluten-free.

Try pure shea butter and/or Pure Lanolin - incredible results without all the junk
