  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I am taking Dapsone too...it took a few days to help. I needed somethng for immediate relief as well and benedry and zrytec ...all that kind of stuff did nothing! I would wake up in the morning with blood under my fingernails from scratching so much. My Dermatologist gave me a topical creme called "Elocon" It is a GOD SEND!!! Any Dermatologist should have a free sample your friend could try! It brings relief within kust a few minutes! I break out if I am stressed or accidentally ingest gluten, usually within hours. Usually my first sign of accidental ingestion! Have your friend try it!!!! I am sure it will help!!! Good luck! I know how it feels...trust me!!!

  3. I am new to this board too...just posted for the first time a few weeks ago. Thanks for all the info and help. I have been celiac for about 5 years and also thought we (8 yr old daughter and myself) we doing pretty good. I have had a rash on my leg for 2+ years now and have gone to the Dr. about 4 times because it bothered me so much. Well, I finally just this week got it diagnosed as DH. It was my suspicion all along but could not get any Dr. to agree. Finally I got to see a specialist and had the biopsy done on Tuesday. He has put me on Dapsone...just wondering if anyone is or has taken it and what I need to watch for as far as side effects! I am taking 100mg once a day. I am very anxious about taking it. Had the pills since Tues and just took the first one last night! We have been gluten free for so long I really hoped I would not have to worry about DH too. Sniff sniff. Kinda overwhelming sometimes!!! Anyway....let me know if anyone has had problems with dapsone! Thanks, Lynette
  4. Are you guys serious??? A gluten free brownie? I am going there tonight if that is the case!!! Maybe my celiac daughter and I (also celiac) will go on a girl date tonight!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am! I am brand spanking new to this board...but 8 yr old daughter and me are gluten free for about 5-6 yrs now! It is hard still but having somewhere to go and get goodies will be a nice change! We always to to Mcdonalds cuz they have a designated fryer for their fries. Also...we do pretty good with most Mexican resteraunts. We get nachos which we both love!!! I just double check ingredients and almost always can't have the sour cream and guacamole (usually has sour cream in it). Every now and then you find a place that makes their own from fresh avacados and YUMMY!!! Thanks so much for the Outback tip!!! Can't wait...(did I mention that I was excited to go try it!!!!!!!!!!)
