Hi guys,

I just wanted to ask all the DH succeeded out there wether or not your DH flares up on contact with gluten, Wethersfield it straight forward bread or a cosmetic cream/ lotion etc?

For myself I find this is the case- I don't have to digest gluten to get a reaction.

My medical team keep trying to tell me this doesn't happen--- what's your opinion guys??!

Thanks in advance

J xx

Gluten just has to come into contact with a mucous membrane to cause a reaction. Any thing on your skin or hair has the possibility of being transfered by rubbing your eyes, nose or eating something with a lotion residue on your hands. While gluten is not thought to pass through intact skin if you have active DH lesions your skin is not intact.

I avoid gluten in all topicals, there are a few of us who don't need to though. Generally if in doubt leave it out for a bit and see if things improve. Also with DH you need to avoid iodine. Iodine will keep the antibodies active in your skin.
