Gluten-Free And My Eczema Is Back?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've only been gluten free for two weeks now. Well, technically a week if I include my accidental glutening at a restaurant last week. But I've noticed my eczema is back on my fingers and it's SO annoying and painful! I haven't had an eczema outbreak in a reallllly long time and I'm kind of surprised it's back since going gluten-free.

Anyone have any ideas and/or similar reactions to going gluten-free? Is my body just going through a detox and this is part of the process?

If you were glutened last week that may explain why it is back. It takes a while to heal and you haven't been gluten free for very long. It seems to take the antibodies a while to leave the skin and any glutening you get for a while may bring it back. I hope it resolves soon for you and make sure you check your topicals for gluten ingredients as that can be an issue.

When I first went gluten free, my symptoms seemed to get worse before they got better...maybe it was a type of detox process. But I think my skin problems aren't just about gluten - I seem to react to almost all carbs. For the last couple weeks, I've been trying to stay away from even gluten-free breads, baked goods, etc, and my skin has cleared up again. I think when you first remove gluten from your diet, your body goes into overdrive trying to repair itself. I would say to be really careful for a couple weeks, try not to eat too many gluten-free processed alternatives (stick to whole, basic foods) and see how your skin reacts. After you get everything to calm down a bit, you can start introducing foods back and watch for a reaction. Hope you feel better soon!

I didn't develop psoriasis until AFTER I went gluten-free.
