Ceranwrap?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am on rash breakout #2 since going gluten free...this time is by far the worse. I thought it was better than the other times because I saw less initial bumps...but boy was I wrong.

Anyways, has anyone tried wrapping themselves in ceranwrap?

Mine is on my pinky, and as of now I am up to 25% of my pinky is all peeled off looks like I am going to make it to 50% soon very soon, and it hurts pretty much from my top knuckle down to the base all day, putting lotion on it seems to soothe it for 1 second....I was thinking maybe if I lathered it up, then wrapped it in ceranwrap like a burn and kept the air from it, I could keep the pain away a little longer.

I have used those gel burn dressings on my legs. I cut the dressing (a little messy)then covered with waterproof tape. It felt really good. I think you can get smaller ones that are "all-in-one" on a bandaid type thing.

I tried the wrap on my legs, but what I did was place wet gauze first, then the saran wrap. A nurse I know said not to put any kind of lotion or steroid cream under the wrap.

Good luck.

Funny you should ask...

I have a weird thing on my pinkie.

I find covering it helps, even a simple band-aid. I put a bit of Shea butter/olive oil salve on the band aid and it helps even more. I bought some latex kitchen gloves the other day for washing dishes since that seems to aggrivate it.

The waterproof bandages work great if I can get them to stick. If I get the salve on the sticky part or if my hand is wet it won't. Band-aids are easier.

Hadn't thought of Saran wrap, but why not. I'd try it - just change it frequently and let it air out.

I use gloves whenever I can - washing up, cleaning at home, hard-on-the-hands jobs at work (cotton gloves). I could tell everyone thought I looked weird wearing the white cotton gloves but now I am working easier and faster. No more hand damage.

I strongly recommend you have a think about what you do during you normal day and think about what gloves could help. Avoid "powdered" - they are often gluten-ed. Buy the powder free type.

I keep bandaids in my pocket all day.

I wouldn't wrap with Saranwrap. Your skin needs to breathe. I used to use non-latex fabric bandaids with a bit of neosporin. The glove advice is also good. I use thrift store cotton or real thin leather when I am working with stuff and non-latex unpowdered when doing wet things. I get the non-powdered disposables in my local pharmacey.
