Celiac husband with body acne: could GF shampoos and soaps be the answer?

Question by Derp: Celiac husband with body acne: could GF shampoos and soaps be the answer?
Hubby is on a gluten-free diet and uses Proactiv and has noticed a slight change in his body acne. Could using gluten-free shampoo, conditioner, and body wash finally rid him of this acne?
We’re TTC – accutane is out of the question.

You don’t say if your husband just started the gluten-free diet or how long he has been on it. External gluten usually doesn’t have an affect on a celiac but if he has dermititis herpetiformis which is also a gluten intolerance, his skin could be reacting to the gluten.

If he just started the gluten-free diet, it could be his body getting better and the skin changing as part of that. If he is just starting out, he may want to try a gluten free multivitamin, an omega 3-6-9 capsules and possibly a vitamin D3 capsule if you live in the northern areas and/or he doesn’t get outside much in the daylight.

And good luck on TTC.
