My daughter was diagnosed in 2006 with Celiac disease. She's been doing well until just a few months ago. Part of the problem is her deodorant...she's getting swollen red, tremendously itchy rashes with solid white deodorants/antiperspirants but gels don't seem to bother her ... yet. What's the difference? What's a recommended gel/roll-on brand that doesn't cause rashes? She has trouble with lotions as well. I'm not sure what ingredient I should be looking for that isn't obviously labeled "wheat..."? Hmmm....?!!

Just a thought--I react to many deodorants, but I don't think it's because of gluten. I've become more sensitive all the way around since going gluten-free, and this includes my skin.

What works very well for me is a crystal deodorant. I've been using it now for probably 3 years, and I've not had any itching or anything. The brand I use is Thai. It's widely available and a stick lasts for a very long time.

I noticed that a gluten free company Savonnerie makes deodorant. I haven't used it or anything so I'm not endorsing it. I just noticed it when I was ordering their lotion.

I have a large number of allergies, along with skin (and "normal") gluten reactions. I also had pretty bad reactions to every "normal" antiperspirant and deodorant i tried.

First, I tried the Savonnerie one, and of course like all Sav products it is safe.. but powders are not so good for just everyone, as it gets on your cloths. I didn't like it, so I kept looking.

The Most perfect things I could find : Nutribiotic brand deodorant sticks/solids. It doesn't stop sweat, but it leaves you smelling great, and contains aloe, so it really helped my skin heal.The whole "you still sweat" concept.. Not a down side once I found out that regular antiperspirants only prevent sweating by clogging your pores with something gross.

I also have that problem with deodorants. I used to use Almay, but it is hard to find in some places. I have recently started using Dove unscented deodorant and it works great. I have not had any itchiness or break outs.

I also use the deodorant crystal. Not an antipersperant (but sweat is a good thing, honestly), but forms a barrier that prevents the bacteria which cause BO from growing in any quantity for about 24 hours. Works great for me. (You do have to wet the stick or skin before applying it.)

I'm guessing this is more a specific-to-me thing than a celiac thing in general, but for what it's worth:

I couldn't tolerate deodorants/antiperspirants (except the mineral salt kind) for several years - by trial, error and luck I discovered that if I have 'too much' vitamin C (like the amount in a regular multivitamin) I would get hive-like reactions to deodorant/antiperspirant (roll-on or stick, even if fragrance free). Once I readjusted my vitamin line-up, I could tolerate fragrance free deodorant/antiperspirant.

As a kid I once got hives from too much Tang in one weekend!

Good luck, hopefully you will solve the puzzle with your daughter.

My brother's doc told him to try milk of magnesia. I thought it sounded gross, but I was getting itchy rashes under my arms as well. It stops all odor. There may still be some wetness, but I haven't noticed that so far. Take a cotton ball and just dab a tiny bit under each arm. I promise it works and my rash is gone. I don't smell either! Good luck.

    • Are doctors even getting close to diagnosing the actual number of cases of celiac disease? Or are they missing the vast majority? Researchers have said for some time that there are far more people with celiac disease than are being diagnosed, and that the vast majority of case go undiagnosed. If a new study by Canadian nutrition researchers is any indication, most cases of celiac disease remain undiagnosed. View the full article
    • Thanks for your input, everyone!  I will get tested soon enough for this condition, and I will definitely update you all when the results finally come in.
    • Have you had a sleep study? I have severe sleep apnea and used to sleep 12 hours a night and still was exhausted. Falling asleep at a stoplight exhausted. I do not fit the typical male and overweight stereotype either! But my cpap keeps me more well rested and alive. A sleep study is easy and it's the cost of an office copay. 
    • Have you ruled out the common Keratosis Pilaris (KP) also know as chicken skin?   https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/bumps-and-growths/keratosis-pilaris
    • Squirmingitch brought up the macaroon idea, I find Zsweet, and Swerve Sugar Free sweeteners do not throw me out of keto and I use them to make my "treats" You might sub it in these if your like that idea. I personally just use coconut and almond meal in my baked goods with high fat nuts like walnuts and pecans (Walnuts and pecans have so much oil in them you can butter then in a blender or food processes into a pour able sauce that can be used as a dressing or mixed with eggs and coconut flour into a dough)

      Also brought up batch beans....bad idea for keto, but to integrate a keto version, try cooking a roast in a crock pot, or a whole bunch of chicken breast. You can eat on it for a week just serve it over greens. Or Miracle Rice (zero carb rice) Batch cooking will become a life saver. (works with some foods) and meal preps give you time to just grab a pre fixed meal out of the fridge and go if you need to do something later in the day. First year I was gluten free I did this daily for myself before meat became a issue (I look forward to doing it again).
        CB brings up the issue of selenium and melotonin. YES this is a huge thing and completely evaded my thoughts. I consume massive amounts of seeds, like pumpkin, sancha inchi, hemp all high in these in addition to flax and chia. I tend to rotate my seeds to prevent intolerance issues and only the roasted ones. Look up GERBS allergen friendly foods for pumpkin, hemp, flax, and chia.  I suggest the ground flax under meals as the seeds I notice have issues, I personally always have to cook my chia, and flax seeds into egg dishes or I can not eat them. If you blend them in with the eggs  1-2tbsp seed meal to 1 1/2 cups eggs -1/2 cup almond milk 2tbsp coconut flour and some almond butter and stevia to taste let it set up 5-10mins then blend again you have a batter for pancakes/waffles/doughnuts/breading batter. >.> something like this I whim it as a chef.

      I was thinking of another think I like to snack on. Rythem Super foods roasted kale and the kale chips in moderation. I also crush the kale chips up and sprinkle over eggs as a condiment, Adds plenty of vitamins and the ranch flavor for this is amazing.
