Handcream

What's your favorite gluten free hand cream? I wash my hands 10-20 times during the day and need a good handcream, especially for the winter but even now in the summer, my hands are dry and rough. I prefer one that is not too oily once it is on.

I have a job that requires a lot of hand-washing (I'm a vet tech). I like Aquaphor for when my hands are really in a bad way, since it stays on even through repeated washings, but I personally prefer not to use petroleum-based products unless I really have to. The rest of the time, I use pure jojoba oil (the closest plant oil to human skin oils. Trader Joe's carries this) or pure shea butter (naturally anti-microbial. Organic Essence is a good brand). Both ae safe to use on lips as well as skin. You can also just use a dab of olive oil or coconut butter, too, in a pinch. If you get the pure oil/butter, you can be certain there are no gluten-containing additives, no potentially-irritating fragrances, and no fillers. Look for oils/butters preserved with rosemary extract rather than vitamin e/tocopherol/tocopherol acetate, as these anti-oxidants can be extracted from wheat germ oil.

Does your skin feel oily after using the jojoba oil or shea butter? How do you keep the palms of your hands from being to greasy? Do you just use this once or twice a day and not re-apply during the day?I appreciate everyone's help.

    • Just recently I've had a lot of soreness in my mouth. I have small apthous ulcers on the underside of my tongue (even when I'm well I find I can get them by just eating salty potato chips).  I also have had to have a lump removed from my mouth which turned out to be benign.  Most of this I put down to stress, not enough sleep and I'm badly anemic at the moment - women's stuff.  I have just started to supplement B12 and ferrous glucanate again which has helped in the past.  My consultant tells me that often celiacs with blood iron under 50 can suffer from these sores and if I have an infusion it should sort out the problem. Silly of me but I've just made things far worse, I believe, by consuming a few pure (i.e. gluten free) oat cookies in the last couple of days. I've avoided oats for a long while now but thought I'd give them a try again and my mouth is tremendously sore this evening.
    • No, I won't swallow it! Right now, the wound is not really open, and cold relieves the pain more than warmth, so I'm not sure how much good salt water will do. I guess I get to anticipate the day when it does open, if it does. O goody. The pain is incredible. And I'm very hungry because I'm not eating enough. This really sucks, I must say. Thanks for your other words. Yeah, it was the citrus, and the stress, and some sugary things probably did not help either. Ugh.
    • If your blood tests do come out as negative, and they might, you can ask for genetic testing to rule out celiac and an endoscopy to check for damage.  I was in a similar situation years ago. I was gradually getting more and more tummy problems, a friend suggested cutting back on gluten and bam, I felt better when I did. So, when I finally was able to find a doctor who was willing to believe I didn't just have IBS, I already knew that if I ate gluten I had major diarrhea problems and pain... so went basically gluten free. I told that to the doc and he didn't believe me... but my blood tests all came back negative. Then he did the genetic tests to rule out celiac... they came back positive. Then he did an endoscopy and found damage and diagnosed me... and sent me to a dietitian who knew less about going gluten free than I did. I've been extremely careful since then. 
    • Weak positive means you should have an endoscopy done (with several biopsies) to see if you definitely have celiac. You have to continue eating gluten until the testing is done. If the biopsies don't confirm celiac you can always try a strict gluten free diet for a couple of months to see if you feel better.
    • They offer gluten free buns at $2 a pop.   I get the grilled chicken sandwich w/gluten-free bun and apple slices.  I only put lettuce, tomato, and onions on it.   Tough keeping the bun from falling apart.   I don't have severe symptoms so can't say for sure if I ate all gluten-free.
