Is Eczema Often A Symptom?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My friend's 12 yr old has dealt with pretty bad eczema over the years. He is severely allergic to peanuts and milk and other things but hasn't figured out what the reason for his eczema is. She's wondering if maybe doing a trial of gluten free could help him. If it was the gluten causing him to break out does anyone have an idea of how long it might possibly take for it to clear up going gluten free?

Are there people here who had eczema that cleared up gluten free?

I am wondering this too! I have had eczema since I can remember and in the last 4 years began having bad hand eczema. I am hoping that blood tests and a gluten-free diet will help with all the symptoms that seem to be pointing me in this direction!

BB, is the stuff on your hands on your PALMS, and does it look the same as the rash in other places on your body? I ask because I have palmoplantar pustular psoriasis. It is on my palms and on my feet. You could look up pictures and see if yours looks the same.

My psoriasis started clearing up in a matter of days, once I started the diet. Unfortunately, I have found out that I am also corn intolerant, and corn DEFINITELY causes the psoriasis to come back. And now, after it was completely healed, it is flaring again. I haven't been into anything with corn or gluten, so I'm thinking it might be the Blue Diamond almonds I ate a couple of days ago. :angry: It's going to take forever to figure out what else I'm intolerant to at this rate!

Yes, eczema and psoriasis are often listed as associated Celiac symptoms--and that makes sense, as they are both autoimmune conditions, too.

While I do not suffer from either of those, I did have rashes, blisters on my scalp and in my mouth, and acne --- and now they are gone. :)

Certainly worth trying a gluten-free diet to see if it helps.
