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???

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
