I do have eczema and have since I was a teen. If possible (and not embarrassing) I would try to get a few pics or maybe just check out what you can find in the DH forums. You want to be sure you aren't confusing eczema for DH. I'm special.... I have both! <_<

I was advised by my dermatologist when I was first diagnosed with eczema to use Eucerin lotion. I find that this is by far still the most helpful for me. If I ever have an especially bad flair I'll go with Aquaphor instead. They also make a body wash that is the only thing that keeps me sane. I have no idea what the ingredients are to be honest and that's really high on my list of I don't rightly care. If you are after the body wash and can't find it, Aquaphor also has one but it is marketed as for babies so you may have luck finding it in the baby section. It says it is baby wash and shampoo so I suppose it could be used as both to help with the scalp stuff. I'm far too stuck up about my hair to try it.

I have had a type of rash for about 8 years on my scalp, went to a few Derm Doctors and no one could figure out quite what it is. Was diagnosed with Sjorgren's Syndrome and then Gluten Sensitivity a year later, since going gluten free (3 months) the rash is almost gone, and no itching. laenie

Dermatitis Herpetiformis - the skin condition associated with Celiac. Not everyone has it. There is a section on this forum about it.

I had exzema throughout my teens and early twenties. It went away. I did several things that might have helped. I did not know that I had celiac at the time. I began a supplement program as recommended by a chiropractor. I covered my hands with rabbit fur gloves as soon as the weather cooled in fall. I learned how to make homemade soap. Now, I won't go anywhere without my homemade soap..

I know eczema is itchy and keeps coming back. I remembering dispair set in when a dermatologist had no good answer for what caused it. They also had the only treatment anyone could figure out: hydrocortisone cream. It could make my sores go away, but they seemed to come back with fury. It is also dangerous for kidneys my pharmacist said.

I'm really hoping someone can explain to me WHY I got Eczema when I stopped the gluten...?? I've never had it before now. I was just diagnosed w Celiac in October, and in November I developed Eczema all over my chin, upper lip, nose , and part of my forehead :(. Does anyone know why? AND, will it go away???

    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!  
    • I am sorry too.  I did not mean to imply that you have a sugar issue (though it may contribute to our obesity problem, but that is another debate).  I do not think that is the cause of your symptoms.  I brought it up because the American Academy of Pediatrics just issued this on juice for infants, toddlers and adolescents: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/05/18/peds.2017-0967 We all have unique intolerances.  My kid can not drink orange juice beyond a 1/2 cup.  That is about the equivalent of two oranges.  Too much juice and she gets an allergic reaction -- itchy hives all over her body.  Yet, she can eat two oranges in her lunch everyday -- just not a full cup of orange juice, processed or fresh.   Me?  I tolerate it just fine, if only I could tolerate garlic!!!!!! i hope you feel better soon.
