  1. Is Dh Relieved With Antihistamines?

    I have noticed that when I take regular OTC Claratin that a break out will clear up in a couple days. I have to agree that meds aren't the best cure for this, but it does help in an emergency.
  2. Dapsone - Occasional Use

    I did use dapsone in that fashion for a while, however the side effects are absolutely horrible and it seemed like they kicked in almost right away. Its been almost 15 years so my memory may be fuzzy on that one. I would not recommend using it at all, but if you use it sparingly. That said, its kinda like heroin - even tho the side effects suck, it is really hard to quit. I have found that regular OTC Claratin does help me. I don't know if it works for anyone else, but I do feel better if I have a break out.
  3. I have definitely noticed that if I don't use gluten-free shampoo I do end up paying for it. It may be coincidence but I've taken every opportunity to avoid anything with gluten from crossing the door into the house.
  4. Can Dh Be Mild?

    I've had the biopsy test and all of that happy stuff and diagnosed with DH / Celiacs via biopsy. I know that if I get "glutened" my guts get all torn up and I will break out with blisters - usually a couple days later. The worse I end up getting glutened the worse I break out.
  5. I've more or less given up on store purchased sauces and now make my own. Since going gluten-free I'm now a fairly good cook. BBQ sauce is fairly easy, even from scratch. Lots of recipes suggest using ketchup as a base, but I'm not a fan of the flavor. I make a tomato sauce then start adding "A little of this, a little of that" then add some liquid smoke, molasses & a tiny bit of vinegar. If I'm feeling froggy I'll add some smoked jalapenos or habanero peppers to add some kick (My wife prefers I add those after I jar the first 2/3's and then I'll let the sauce simmer some more) Only problem with making my own BBQ sauce is I do it "low and slow" and it makes the entire house just smell way too good and my stomach grumbles in protest as it knows it'll be hours before it gets any =)
