FYI...Are yous eating RAGWEED? Fruits/vegetables that produce or contain seeds?

It seems impossible not to eat these items right?
Ha...try avoiding said items for 3 weeks. Give yourself a week to eliminate ragweed then go 2 weeks without it.

All cabbages, cauliflowers, leafy vegetables.
No swiss chard nor spinach, celery, carrots.

I have no outbreaks, fevers, hives, teary eyes, nor swollen tongue or esophagus.

Gluten free? No yeast. emoticon

Yo ticker! Thank you for moving down:)

I am eating gluten free which does help but i still have really bad reactions mostly when I am at work. I actually developed DH AFTER i found out that i had CD and had already been gluten free. I started getting the rashes while shampooing people's hair so i started looking at the ingredients of the shampoos I was using and they all had 1 thing (wheat protein) in common. so now i wear gloves ALL the time and im taking zyrtec everyday which seems to help with the itching.

Thank you all for your recommendations im going to look up that cream and probably go see a dermatologist...

I have thought about finding a salon where they use more natural products but alot of natural products still have the wheat in it and i think finding a salon that is GF is going to be almost impossible.

Nothing but being gluten free helped mine and, before I knew what it was, I found nothing that controlled the extreme itching, particularly at night.

You might try gojo barrier lotion. It is USDA approved for people who work with meat and poultry products so it should have any effects on people's hair. I get it at work so I don't know where you would buy it. It says #8144 on my tube.

GoJo Barrier Lotion is to help protect skin against water based irritants like coolants, plating solutions, paints, detergents, salts, alkalies, dyes and mild acids.

Good luck.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know itís me.

Hi, The cream which I was prescribed, which does not cause drying is Betamethasone Dipropionate USP 0.05%.
I have also found that when I have flare up of DH antihistamines are some help.
I hope you find something that helps you.
Carol

ouch, you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. For me I had to go completely GF including beauty products for mine to clear up and even then I will come home from shopping and find some of the blisters on my fingers.
I hate to suggest it but there is a medication(pill) but it can cause liver damage and since CD damages all the intestines the last thing you want to do is add medication that does more damage, but maybe ask your Dr about it.
Other than that all I can suggest is a different job or a different salon that will allow you to use all GF products if yours won't.

Right now I can't think of the cream because I am out of it, but I use a cream that has coal tar in it. You can buy it over the counter. Is your not eating GF helping? An outbreak is how I know I have had gluten as I don't have the other symptoms very often.

Ok so Ive been suffering from this on my hands and forearms for almost a year now and its getting really bad.

I am hairstylist and i even have to wear gloves to shampoo hair but sometimes water gets in my gloves with some of it or the fumes from the hair color irritate it. (almost alll hair products in that we use in the salon has wheat protein) i try my best to avoid but sometimes it still gets in there.

My doctor prescribed me a cream triamcinolone .1% which helps with the itching but it dries out my skin so severely that my skin cracks and peels. so i am in a battle all the time between my skin breaking out in sores and cracking so badly to the point of bleeding.

besides a GF diet how do you treat yours??

Btw if this is a repeat feel free to link me to other posts but i got tired of looking through them all and it didnt really come up in my search
