Sores In My Nose
0

7 posts in this topic

I just received my Dx last week and have been gluten-free for 7 days . . . thankfully, the pain in my gut has subsided.  However, i noticed one of the symptoms of celiac is mouth sores.  I don't have these, but i have been having chronic sores in my nose for months.  Does anyone else have this?  Do these issues resolve themselves as the body heals?  In the meantime, how do you treat?

I used to have those when I was eating gluten. I never even thought about it being gluten connected, and I never even consciously noticed that they have gone away now, but they have. I had issues with mouth sores AFTER going gluten-free for a while. Those have stopped now too. I would say just give it time.

Like bartfull, I get mouth sores more often than the nose ones... but I do get them once in a while.  I'm not sure if they were from celiac or something else though... it's one of those really common symptoms it seems.

It's my understanding that a person absorbes 70% of your fluid intake in your small intestines.  If the intestines are damaged..no absorption.  Hydrate yourself as much as possible, and in time, you may feel better. ;)

Nose is lined with mucous membrane, makes sense to me that it could be celiac connected. I have issues with mouth sores. I think a lot of my issues are from vitamin deficiencies, but I also had what I think was a gluten reaction and my mouth was immediately burny, like I had small sores over it and then decided to swish lemon juice around, when I ate the food.

Look into all the vitamin deficiencies that cause mouth sores, (I think that's most of them...) dose up on them for awhile and see if it gets better. And the usual, make sure you're not ingesting gluten where you think it isn't.

keep an eye on it.  The human nose is a really "dirty" spot.  make sure they don't get infected.

Thank you all for your responses.  I had to go to the dr. yesterday because I have the respiratory crud.  I mentioned the sores in my nose to her and she said they could be celiac-related.  She told me to use neosporin just inside the nostril, which I am starting.  I am a bit anxious to see what the antibiotic she prescribed does to my tummy over the course of treatment.  It seems that anything that will affect a person's tummy affects mine way more intensely . . .

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
    • A negative result from a biopsy that is.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
