I have always had an 'allergy' to soap. I've never had it checked out. Every time I bathe, I get this itchy rash all over, mostly legs arms and belly. The absolute worst is dial bar soap. That is so bad that if I shower after it has been used I practically scratch my skin off. Could this be a gluten thing? If so, what ingredients should I be weary of?

I don't know as I haven't used Dial for years. Even if it's not gluten, it might contain an ingredient that is irritating your skin.

I find Soft Soap works well for me and I use it in my shower and at all the sinks, too. I use Dawn dishwashing liquid in the kitchen for those things that need to be hand washed.

Dial can be a little rough on your skin just because it has always seemed to be a little bit of a more abrasive soap. Maybe try something a little more gentle like Dove?
