Hi,good morning!

I'm looking for a concealer that will not make the problem worse. (Fair skin tone). Better with some healing essential oils and without spirits.

I've been dealing with DH for the past seven months--it won't go away because there's iodine in my thyroid medication (ugh!). So, in order to hide the very prominent purple and red sores/scars, I've used Dior's Air Flash. Although it was developed to actually spray directly on a person's face, I spray a little into the palm of my hand and then use a small cosmetic brush to apply it only where I need coverage. My friends swear they can't see that my skin is at all damaged. This stuff is the best I've ever found. You can find it at Macy's, and they'll let you sample it right there. I also use the fairest shade. I have to admit, though, that it's a bit pricey; however, I've used the same can for over two years on nearly a daily basis.

I also use this product on scars on my lower leg--I'm finally able to wear shorts again. You really can't distinguish it from real skin--it doesn't look cakey or fake at all.

Thank You very much for the advice! We are in shortage of cosmetic brands. I was absolutely pleased with Shiseido Concealer Stick Nr.1 but now they discontinued. It's allright with the price,I need it not in so much amounts (but every day). Especially I liked it for staying on face while swimming. So I'm looking for smth similar,in a form of stick and with beeswack. Just to put it on the object and forget. I have tried Body Shop concealer but it's visible as a patch and not the right tone. Some other brands made the dermatitis worse (the creamy consistence and with brush).

FernW,have You tried essentional oils on the skin (Chamomelis,Tea Tee,Cinnamon etc)? Take a good base oil and mix in small amount of ess.oils,very calming :) . From the ready made I like Darphin,it's a wonder. My legs itch like hell,I have psoriase type patches and often wake up in the mornings scratching my legs. So the elbows,I had to buy some extra cashmere jumpers because I could't wear lambs wool (I'm from North,our winters are terribly cold). I got rid of my elbow patches just by putting there Darphin oil mix and vaselin containing cream. Where have I been earlier??

    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
    • The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.
