Dry Palms And Fingers

Recommended Posts

I always seem to have dry palms. I went on a two week glutening, just to see. All the classic symptoms came, but I noticed that my hands went crazy dry too. Does anyone else have this??

Only when I use a hand lotion that is not gluten free.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

My palms were itchy and dry before I went gluten-free - something terrible!

I used lotion but I still scratched my palms to the color red and then it seemed to be between my fingers too and I was going nuts!

It didn't happen all the time - mostly in spurts.

Is it because I'm touching gluten products or is it coming from my insides? I don't know.

Being gluten-free, that has subsided a great deal! Now they're just dry from constantly washing my hands as to NOT pick up any germs from flu or colds.......don't think my immune system is ready yet.


Take everything away from me - food, habits...take it all! But don't touch my bacon! You can NOT have my bacon!

You know I didn't think about it until you said it. I used to have dry hands too. I kept Bag Balm in my shop because it was the only thing that helped. My skin would crack on my thumbs close to the corners of the nail. I don't see that problem now. Even though my hands are in water just as much with the flowers and coffee bar. Actually more now because I do more of that work myself. My skin is in better shape! Thanks for the reminder. I have another thing to be thankful for!
