Hi, I just wanted to add a note to this topic I found out that using jojoba

oil and almond oil works great i had a bottle of it for my cuticles, somebody mentioned tea tree oil and that stung so I tried the jojoba oil and it has worked great I don't itch very much at all now. I also notice when I do get stressed out I itch, or when I eat yeast. so now I try not to eat gluten or yeast. still having trouble giving up my wine, I did find red wine did'nt bother it as much, but beringers wine made me itch within 5 minutes. I gave up so much I know I have to give up the wine but I'm struggling hard with it. laurie anne.

I did have some terrible problems with itchy skin and blisters on my hands and buttocks, and some of it proved to be DH, but I saw an alergist and found out I have developed some food allergies that I never had before to coconut, eggs, milk, nuts, etc. Getting this undercontrol really helped. The allergist thought because I have non-responsive celiac that it might have caused or added to the allergic reaction.

;) to all of you that are having itchie problems. my family has a history of VERY DRY skin. to make a long story short, my son who has not been diagnosed yet with celiac disease has the same horrible dry skin and it would almost look like eczema. well, we/he has been gluten-free for about 4 months now and we just deal with the dry skin. the ONLY thing that works for us is pure glycerin. you have to get in the pharmacies and usually have to order it and wait for it to come in. i promise it is worth every penny spent on it.

to apply it, take a shower/bath and DO NOT dry off. rub the glycerin on you and pat yourself dry. you will feel a little sticky. but i'll take sticky any day over itchy.

hope this helps you all. let me know. i have a place i can get it cheap if anyone is having problems.

Hi everyone. I just found your messages and want to share my experience (no need to say I'm gluten-free for my celiac disease).

For skin:

KISS MY FACE. They have very good soaps, i.a. Olive & Herbal Soap, some other olive soaps. They are gluten-free though some others are not.

AVALON ORGANIC BOTANICALS. Facical Cleansing Gel (also good for shaving). Hydrating Toner. Moisture Plus Lotion with SPF 18. They have other products for other types of skin (mine is combination).

NATURE'S GATE. Fragrance-Free Moisturizing Lotion (For Sensitive Skin) with Aloe Vera, Extracts of Coffee and Wild Pansy, Safflower Oil & Organic Jojoba Oil.

For hair:

PURE & BASIC. Natural Clarifying Shampoo. Natural Lite Conditioner.

For lacerations, cuts, scrapes:

DESERT ESSENCE. Eco-Harvest Tea Tree Anti-Microbial Cream with Green Tea Extract (I have severe allergy to lots of antibiotics and iodine so can't use almost none of existing antiseptic creams and ointments).

All of those products are natural, organic, don't contain that s... acid. I finally got some relief of dry itchy skin though I don't have DH but often have skin allergy for lots of other allergens (food and in medications). I started using all of them after my last gluten accident which was really severe, when I grabbed all of my skin/cosmetic stuff, placed in a bag and gave to my girlfrien who does not have to watch gluten intake, and bought what I just listed above. That was about two months ago, and now I have no complaints regarding my new stuff.

Hope it'll help you.

    • I have seen info that children's antibodies can drop very quickly.  The lucky little guys!
    • I think if you search through this section of the forum, you will find that many children see a quick drop in their antibodies.  Recovery can come fast or slow  in both kids and adults.  We are all different!   I can tell you that my antibodies are still high, yet I had a repeat biopsy done last week showing healthy villi (Marsh Stage IIIB at diagnosis five years ago).  So, here I was beating myself up for having elevated antibodies which made it look as if I was not diet compliant, and I was actually healed.  Researchers  have not done a lot of studies about repeating the antibodies tests after diagnosis to monitor progress (lack of funding for sure).  Repeat antibodies testing is not perfect, but it is the only tool in the box right now.   We suspect my antibodies (DGP IgA only positive on the panel ever)  are up for other reasons (e.g. my Hashimoto’s, another AI issue, residuals from a previous gluten exposure).   I do have symptoms but these were attributed to other  things including chronic gastritis which, since I do not have active celiac disease, h. Pylori, drink alcohol, and am allergic to NSAIDs and other meds, is probable autoimmune.   Great job on keeping him safe!  I am glad he is feeling better.  He is seeing results from the diet which helps confirm the diagnosis.    Systemic issues can take longer to heal, so just keep moving forward.  
    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
    • Our 6 year olds Iga test came back over >100 last May. We had him tested because he was thin, had dropped down in his weight charts and was losing his hair! He was also suffering from miscellaneous aches and pains. We immediately eliminated gluten and with only a few screw ups, 6 months later his level was 4! The doctor is astonished at how rapidly it decreased, and is questioning whether he has celiac or not. (has not had a biopsy, as they are so invasive and the testing is so accurate these days.) His hair is thicker and he has gone up in weight 5%, and doesn't complain as much about leg pains or aches.  Has anyone else's child recovered this fast? Could something else be going on? His thyroid tests are normal, so the plan for now is to keep doing what we are doing and re-test both Iga and thyroid in the spring.  thanks for any help!!
