Seborrheic Dermatitis

If so, has anything helped. Has anyone tried casein free and had success?

I was diagnosed with celiac June 2006 and gut symptoms cleared up within two weeks. I was, however, experiencing non-situational depression that did not resolve gluten-free. Was told by a support group friend who was diagnosed at Mayo that she was told there that it usually takes at least 18 months gluten-free for celiac related depression to resolve (maybe leaky gut?, dunno).

I decided to try to speed up the depression process in January 2007 by eliminating casein as well in case leaky gut was slowing the depression progress (casein free didn't help my depression, btw. It took about 2 yrs totally clear). But I have seborrheic dermatitis that occurs yearly from late winter on into the July. Occurs on eyelids and is severe under arms. In 2007 while casein free, the seb derm didn't flare up at all.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm flaring up now and about to go back casein free which I hate, hate, hate. Gluten-free is "a piece of cake :) " for me, but casein free is horrible due to my love for cheese and it's an additive for so many foods - even ones that don't list milk as an allergen at the end of ingredients.

If anyone else has tried and had success with seb derm and casein free?

Thanks much! -L

I am just gluten intolerant. My Seb. Derm is nowhere near as severe as yours although one summer I had it behind my ears and I thought they might fall off!

I went gluten-free and my scalp improved, but now that I am CF too, I only have a tiny, tiny patch on the crown of my head. When I've tested dairy, I have noticed my skin gets worse. My main reaction to dairy seems to be skin issues, acne and excema. I have not noticed the patch getting any worse,

I've had a lot of benefit from being off dairy,(skin and menstrual cycle improvements) so it has been a worthwhile change for me. If you had asked me this a year ago, I would never have thought I would do it.

Hope this helps.

I get this, all around my hairline <_< ....AND eczema and am about to go dairy free again to clear it 'cos it's raging out of control :angry:

Ok, ..I'm not a coeliac (hubby and son are)..but discovered my skin probs improved dramatically if I ate gluten-free........... but I noticed if I ate alot of dairy I could immediately feel 'the tingle/burn'.

I did a trial run of dairy free and ALL my skin probs disappeared..........but as you say gluten-free is a doddle but dairy <_< UGH!!!!!

I've got to get off these steroid creams (which aren't working!)

I get this pretty badly off and on--I sometimes scratch till I bleed without noticing (until I see the blood under my fingernails. I've never even associated it casein, but I also don't really care to go casein free with all of my other food intolerances. It's definitely the worst for me when I'm approacing ovulation, so there's definitely a hormonal component for me. Nothing I've done has really helped all that much, so I just live with it...begrudgingly.

On this website, I read someone recommend "oil pulling" for dermatitis/skin problems. I took the advice for myself and have been doing it ever since. It has been working really well for me. Just google "oil pull" for complete instructions. Essentially, it is just using oil as a mouthwash (only for 15-20 minutes instead of 5). There are a lot of theories behind it, but basically what it does is clean out the bacteria and toxins that accumulate in the mouth (toxins exit the body through glands in the mouth). For some reason eliminating this extra toxic burden from the body clears up skin rashes. I have been using extra virgin olive oil, but I have heard cold-pressed sesame and sunflower oil are the best.

    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!

    • Hope it proves of use  The Umberto Volta interview is particularly interesting and the case study from England also...
    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson
