I'll let my mom know she isn't crazy. emoticon

I don't react the same way when coming into contact with gluten. She's more instant and for me it sits and stews in my system for a couple days and then makes me sick.

I have now experienced a reaction to 3M Nexcare bandages. My skin turned red and even now after a month, the area that was red is now all dry.

I went through this exact same thing, and everyone told me I was crazy...I made pizza dough for everyone in my family. They are not celiac but I am. I went beet red, and started to immediately get bitchy and irritated.( those are my most prevelant symptoms, and are immediate) I had to immediatly wash my hands with gluten free soap, and lotion with gluten free body lotion. I repeated every 10 minutes, until it stopped. It was really wierd. Needless to say I haven't done it since. I home make my own pizza, but everyone elses is store bought!
I went to a celiac event, and asked the same questions that you did, and was told by Shelly Case that this is not a factor and they are not related, but my hands beg to differ. I also loose my hair, and have dry patches, and feel sick when I use ANY product with gluten in it.

If you check out the posting entitled "Make up" I posted about some products and sources to get them.

Good luck!

Update -- too funny.

I called my parents over the weekend to find out my dad was baking! That is definitely a first. But it goes to show how much he likes his cookies.

HikingChic - I've been talking to a woman from OH who runs a support group and I mentioned to her your question about red hands and this is what she wrote back:

Funny you ask about red hands. I have a friend in Florida whose father was a baker and always had red hands. She suspected he had bowel problems. She tried to do the diet without diagnosis, and she did feel better, but she didn't stick with it. Too bad. But I suppose anything is possible. A fellow who just joined our group had neuropathy and the bottom of his feet would get beet red.

I'll keep asking!

The local support group I joined hasn't had a meeting in a while. I think to recoop from the holidays, we'll be meeting in a few weeks though. I was going to check with them to see if anyone there had experienced anything similiar.

I've been finding to always expect the unexpected in regards to celiac!

I vaguely remember someone at our last celiac support meeting saying that happened to them. I'll have to think more and ask around again.

My mom got the red hands from baking, not my dad. He was the recipient of the cookies though. Fortunately for her, the redness went away after a day.

Regardless, it is quite funny to imagine my dad baking.

HikingChic,
Yes, you may be right that it's time for your dad to hang up his flour-dusted apron. emoticon

As I look back, my first sign of CD was itching and
big blisters on my hands and feet. My mom took me to a doctor and I had to use the "black" ointment. I was so embarassed. No one knew what Celiac was back then.

Most of the posts I have seen on listservs are related to symptoms of DH. Her hands were only red, not with itching or blisters. I'm just curious if any one has experienced this.

This may be a sign for my dad to do his own baking.

Hi HIKINGCHIC,
skin sensitivity to gluten is not something i have experienced. Have you asked this question on the US celiac listserv or looked it up in their archives?

Hi all -- my mom just asked me a question. She is new to the GF diet. We both have celiac (her blood test was neg, positive biopsy). However we are very different in how we react. She tended to immediately react when eating out before, where as my reaction is more delayed, so I think she has a gluten sensitivity besides celiac. Over the weekend she made my dad some cookies from pre-mixed dough and after forming the cookies, her hands turned red! I haven't had problems touching gluteny things, but I understand it is possible to have skin reactions when coming in contact with gluten. She also has more sensitive skin than I do as she has psorasis. She said the psorasis has improved though.

So, has anyone else experienced redness after skin contact with gluten?

thanks!
