  1. I'd recommend YummyEarth Organic Hot Chili Lollipops, smashed with a grinding stone or mallet into bits to be sprinkled. They have the spice and the colour without gluten or dye. Amazon carries them: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/yummy-earth-organic-hot-chili-lollipops-15-ct?SourceCode=INTL140
  2. Never heard of it, but I do know celiac and psoriasis go hand-in-hand. I get blister-like spots and the more typical plaques if I've been glutened. It goes on for some time, too, and is maddening, esp. on the scalp. Per my allergy dr the same psoraisis tar-lotion that you can use for the hair/scalp, can be applied to the skin elsewhere for symptomatic relief. The other thing that works for me is a mix of aloe gel and tea-tree oil. It stings at first, but then soothes the itch.
  3. Promethazine?

    The easiest thing for you to do would be to call a 24 hr pharmacy in your area and tell the pharmacist you have coeliac and cannot have medication with gluten and are concerned about [give them name/brand of the medication]. Could they advise you? Then as soon as you are able, inform your regular pharmacist of your condition. They will place it in their database and thereafter, they will inform you (and your doctor) if any medications contain gluten.
