      I never worry about deodorant.  The only things you really need to worry about are things that might get in your mouth.  I get shampoo in my mouth so I read the ingredients.  They will say if they have wheat germ oil in them.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/will-my-skin-breakout-if-i-use-topical-products-like-shampooslotions-that-have-gluten-in-them   "Gluten must be ingested to be cause for concern for someone with celiac disease. We still recommend those with celiac disease avoid contact with gluten, especially with products that have the potential to be ingested. Small amounts of gluten can be found in many cosmetics, lotions and shampoos. Avoid product ingredients that literally say “wheat,” “rye,” “malt” or “barley.”  "

      Most toiletry products are fine even if they have wheat/gluten in them.  The main issue is not to ingest them!  Many folks with celiac disease are careful with shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, lipstick, lip gloss, hair products,  and sunscreen because they could be accidentally swallowed (if you chew on your nails, etc.).   I have used Crystal Deodorant for 20 years now.  It can last for years!  Seriously!  It is pretty effective but not as effective for a teenager.   My entire family uses it, but my teen uses regular antiperspirant too.  You can find it at Whole Foods, Sprouts, healthfood stores, and even a "roll" on version at CVS.  Of course, Amazon carries it too and the price is comparable to the stores.   I found some mini travel versions at Marshalls (but that is hit or miss).  I like the solid crystal option the best.  I really like Gabriel Lipstick found at Sprouts.  I buy it on sale.  It is certified gluten-free, so I never have to worry!  I hear that Red Apple (sold online) is very good too and is certified.   I hope this helps!  
    • Anyone Else Feel A "lump" In Their Stomach?
      Hi chinup,  I know it's been a while, but I was wondering if what was the diagnosis.. Please let us know.  Thank you! 
    • Tests done, waiting for CT Scan and Biopsy appointments
      Hello, I have been reading a lot of posts while waiting for some of my test results to come back.  So thankful for the information I have found so far! I have completed my blood tests and other lab work.  Complete allergy tests came back positive for all in the bread/cereal profile.   One of the gene tests for Celiac came back positive and one other test came back high, even though I was not eating Gluten at the time of my lab work.  Back eating a small amount of gluten daily and have CT Scan and biopsy appointments scheduled for the near future.   I was wondering if anyone else is where I am as far as the testing.  I have had quite a few symptoms return quickly after going back to eating gluten.  The next day I had a migraine headache for the entire day, went to sleep and woke up with another headache that wasn't quite as bad.  Prior to my appointment,  I was only gluten free for 2 months and was really starting to feel great.  Three days into eating gluten stomach cramps returned.  Also on a Low FODMAP diet.  Unfortunately had to go back to eating it for the biopsy test.   Please reply if you are in the same spot as me as far as testing for Celiac.  Thanks, Sheila
