Hello,

I switched to Dove Soap shortly after going gluten free and the rash I've had all my life on my upper back completely went away.

I ran out of Dove and found an old bar of Dial, not sure what kind because it was a 6 pack and the big package was thrown out long ago. I now have 3 huge itchy bumps that I believe must be DH. They take forever to heal and burn and itch and are worse now than I think they ever were in the past.

Is there a Dial gluten free list? I'm trying to figure out what has caused this recent breakout.

Thanks!

I don't know if Dial is safe (I'm too new to all of this), but Dial drives me crazy. Growing up, all I could use was Dove or Ivory (but Ivory dries your skin a little much for my taste), or I would be itching all over. Even if the soap isn't effecting you via gluten, some soaps have very harsh perfumes that can really affect someone with allergies. Good luck!!

I don't have DH so am only concerned with what I ingest. But, we have used Dial for decades. I like an antibacterial deoderant soap with a mild scent. Can't stand Irish Spring or Ivory type soaps, I almost can't breathe using them.

There are 17 ingredients listed on the package of Dial Clean & Refresh (rinses clean without drying skin) Spring Water. None sound like a gluten containing ingredient. Also, it's more reasonably priced than many others. "I'm glad I use Dial"! :rolleyes:

best regards, lm

It's driving me crazy right now too.Maybe it is the perfume because after using Dove for 2 days I feel a little better already.

Thank you lm. It's probably something else like the perfume in the soap. If the Pink Dove I'm using now doesn't work I'll have to try the unscented one for sensitive skin.

Joni, Get yourself some Everyday African Soap! or perhaps consider adding a Grapefruit Lime Peppermint Cleansing Bar to your cart..... :ph34r::lol:

Just kidding...I don't know anything about dial, sorry (but I've heard others complain about it here). I do like Kiss My Face olive oil soap though. It has like two ingredients. :) Hope your itchiness gets better soon.

:lol: Mango, maybe I should!

I've seen Kiss My Face mentioned- where do you get it?

You can find it at most health food stores, or if your drug store has a "natural" section, you can usually find it there (I've found it at CVS and Longs). It's seriously an awesome soap, and very inexpensive. I use it on my face and one bar lasts forever.

Ooooooh, I found Kiss My Face in Shoprite today! I knew they had a section with healthy soaps, etc and I found it there. I also found out all of Toms of Maine products are gluten free except 2! They are listed on their website and Shoprite has a rather large area with a ton of these products.

I'm doing the happy dance!!! :)

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
