  1. I too have the problems with my scalp - though mine dont really ooze, but itch. I have celiac disease and was wondering if I had DH. My skin would breakout after ingesting gluten, but not necessarily symmetrical. Ever since Dec I have had severe skin problems, I had eaten gluten, but have been checking my food much carefully and have not knowingly ingested gluten. but still the skin problems persist and they seem to be 2 different types of problems - the itchy bumps and symetrical on my hands and upper back and a scaly rash on my neck and my breast, maybe some type of excema or psorisas. I wondered if my bath products may be the cause and was informed by Pantene - that gluten in these products would not cause a reaction; but cant gluten agents be asborbed thru the skin? Either way I am looking to find toiletries that are gluten free and welcome any suggestions. I am currently using the Whole foods line for shampoo, contioner and shower gel, not seeing much of a difference. Previously I used Melaluca products (natural and contained tea tree oil) and had no problems until around december. I also notice a loss of hair around the front. I also touch wheat bread regularly - making food for my family - could it come from handling gluten? Just started to really find some resolution or control of these problems.
