Help For Dry Skin/rashes

I do not have DH but I do have terribly dry skin and problems so I thought I'd toss these out.

Johnson & Johnson First Aid Cream is what I use, almost anything else seems to irritate problem areas. It will act as a moisturizer and aids healing, and is not real greasy.

Lanacane has a similar vehicle or base, but contains something that acts like a mild anesthetic.

If the skin is only dry, with no rash or whatever I use Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion - some others seem to bother.

Minimizing contact with water can help also, chlorine acts as a drying agent, and the ph levels of water vary quite a bit - even rinsing my hair daily sends my scalp into orbit.

a friend of mine told me that her son's orthodontist told her...toothpaste has SLS - sodium lauryl sulfate in it. The ortho said that some people get ulcers or sores in their mouths because from the SLS. So switch to a toothpaste that doesn't have SLS in it and see if that helps.

You should get a biopsy of your mouth. I didn't know I had celiacs until I woke up one morning with the inside of my mouth all enflamed. Long-story-short...

They did a biopsy, discovered I had Oral Lichen Planus, which is chronic, incurable, and only occurs in people whose immune system is compromised. That promted a lot of tests which finally resulted in my being diagnosed with Celiacs. There is no cure or real treatment for either disease, but if you can get the Celiacs under control, and keep your mouth really clean, there's a chance it will go away on its own.

I have found that using normal toothpastes and mouthwashes aggravates it. Alcohol and peroxide inflame it. Sugar seems to feed it.

If you have little white veins in the lining of your cheeks, blisters, and maybe redness or roughness in places along the gum line, you probably have it, but a biopsy is necessary to rule out cancer, and two other similar diseases that are much more dangerous.

If your doctor diagnoses you with Lichen Planus, there isn't much they can do to help you. What has helped me a lot is using Tea Tree Oil toothpaste and mouthwash that I buy at the health food store. I also make sure I brush, floss and gargle several times a day, and take it easy on sweets. It has dialed it way back and seems to keep it in check. I am working on the Celiacs, and as I get better at avoiding Gluten, I think the lichen planus is losing its grip. It appears to be healing slowly, but it's very aggressive. I have to be dilligent about keeping my mouth clean and limiting my sugar intake. Not easy on a diet based on rice.

I hope you don't have it, but you should definitely see a doctor about it.

Yes do rule out mouth/tongue cancer... my brother has no mouth cancer risk factors, has never smoked and is not and has never been a alcoholic and he is battling mouth cancer right now.... it started with just a small white spot on his tongue, its certainly not common, so don't freak out.... but rule out the bad stuff.

Just as an FYI so far my brother is doing ok!

Thanks for all the messages concerning mouth blisters. For sure I will ask the Doctor about this problem on Monday.

Sometimes my blisters act like a allergy reaction, or at least during regular allergy outbreak. Come to think about it I have both everyday so this isn't really a viable thought.

Chronic :rolleyes:

    • There seems to be a new auto word change that changes all instances of  "gluten-free" to gluten-free in case it does it to this post G F without a space gets changed to gluten-free. I was trying to reference a brand name and it kept on changing it to this and messing me up and drove my OCD mad. If your here and do not know what G F means then you probably do not belong here.
    • ....OK ADMIN just delete this one just another slap in the face article. " After demand from the neighborhood, they will soon add gluten-free options, though these crepes will be prepared on the same griddle, so they're intended for those with mild celiac disease or those who just prefer to eat gluten-free. " 

      Sorry Numskull but "mild celiac" FFS there is no such thing, bloody residue smaller then crumbs and you get months of heighten antibodies an damage. This is very misleading and can lead to people newly diagnosed hurting themselves. NOW if you have no problem with gluten free oats, you can make a crepe like batter very easy, it is a bit fluffier like a hybrid between pancakes and crepes but try this one.
      I used to use gluten-free Harvest oat flour to make these but as I have adverse reactions to any kind of oats I gave this up. 50g Oat Flour
      1/4 tsp Salt
      1/2 tsp Cinnamon
      1 tbsp Maple syrup
      1/2 cup water
      2 tbsp applesauce
      Mix all ingredients togehter then let sit for 10mins for the it to thicken up before pouring in the pan. I used to cook them like pancakes but can be used for crepes due to the texture.
    • I’m so sorry you feel you must steal, that must be awful. The only thing I might consider is that it can become a habit, especially the self-justification part. Not that I'm recommending it right now for you , but with a ketogenic diet, the body goes into ketosis, not ketoacidosis, which is something that people with Type I diabetes can go into: in addition to their bodies burning fat, they also have insanely high levels of glucose in their blood. There’s no risk of ketoacidosis on a ketogenic diet, and in fact in the old days before insulin, one of the remedies was a ketogenic diet. It’s still often used for seizures as well. Plumbago
    • Hi Mary Anne, They take the skin biopsy from adjacent to a "lesion".  There are many possible symptoms of celiac disease.  DH is the skin rash symptom of celiac disease. It can take a year for itching to go away from what I've read.  Reducing iodine intake during symptoms may help reduce their duration.  You have to be gluten-free for symptoms to subside as DH is an immune reaction caused by celiac disease. A good place top start looking for knowledgable doctors is in a local support group.
