    Gluten sensitivity is a common cause of psoriasis and other forms of skin disease and rashes.

    Eczema, dermatitis herpetiformis, folliculitis, etc

    Did going gluten free clear up your skin disorder?  If so, please share your story…

    Thanks!

    Dr. O, first, thanks for your honest approach to medicine, addressing the underlying cause of disease. I have had hand eczema for 5 years and I’ve been truly gluten free for a week. I do feel a little bit better, and my eczema looks a little different. I’ll be sure to share my progress on this post, and other posts on your site.

    I have eczema, acne, and seborrheic dermatitis. I’ve been gluten free for over 5 years, dairy & egg free for about a year, and grain and rice free for about 10 months. My eczema has improved greatly through the years, but I’ll sometimes get a break out, but they usually go away quickly except for this breakout that I have on my left middle finger that I’m sure is a type of eczema that I’ve been trying to get rid of for over 2 years. Sadly, my acne and seborrheic dermatitis haven’t improved much even though I’m taking probiotics, supplements, digestive enzymes, etc. I was hoping that quitting all those foods would be the answer to all of it, but so far it hasn’t been.

    Lonnie,

    You need to consider the possibility of additional food reactions and undiagnosed nutritional deficiencies.  Zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, and biotin deficiencies (to name only a few) can all cause persistent skin problems.  Ask your doc to run a Spectracell lab test on you so that you can target your supplementation.

    All the best,

    Dr. O Smile
