Kissing...does This Happen To Anyone Else?
0

19 posts in this topic

It's so annoying! When I go on a date and/or kiss someone who has ingested gluten (even if they drank beer), my lips end up getting horribly chapped, dry, crack, peel and get canker soars for weeks! Does this happen to anyone else, or am I alone on this one?

No, and I figured so, but you don't really carry a toothbrush on a date and sometimes the moment is just there and you end up kissing. It would be rather odd if I told everyone I went on a date with/hook up with to make sure they bring a toothbrush and tooth paste to the date just in case they get lucky enough to kiss me, haha. :P

That could explain the years of horribly chapped lips!! But I've got my boyfriend trained that if he doesn't wash up after eating gluten, no good bye kisses. It's kinda sad sometimes, but getting sick from a snog is worse!

I'm getting better at enforcing my no kissing after gluten rule. I can't say I've ever gotten glutened, but it's worth being careful. Of course, he makes just as much of a fuss if I've been eating meat, so it evens out. Stick to the cheek until teeths have been brushed.

If your (potential) significant other can't handle it, then it's probably not going to work out.

(My lips are also ridiculously dry lately, but I put that up more to it being winter and dry in general)

I've always been really uptight about no gluten kissyface. I'm just now

starting a new relationship, and made it very clear upfront about the need

for toothbrushing (and beard washing :D ) and he was fine with it. The

gluten thing has definitely kept me from being as free with my kisses as I

might like to be, but I just am not willing to risk it. Nothing with gluten on

it goes in or near my mouth, and that includes someone else's mouth. If

they're all gluteny they can kiss my neck, I like that fine! ;)

I wish I had the will power to say no, lol. When I had a BF I made sure he brushed before we kissed, but being single and just being in the moment, I just don't have to will power of telling the guy "no" when I really just want to maul them. Haha!

I suppose you could always go and brush yourself, after. Although, to be

honest, I did just fine 'mauling' my new guy without having to kiss him...

on the mouth. :D

I know it isn't brush brushing, but you could carry those Wisp thingers (if they are gluten free) and offer him one after a meal out and you both go use one. I may seem a little presumptive but at some point the gluten thing will come up and and can just be very matter of fact, no big deal about it and you're prepped and ready to go make kissy faces.

My boyfriend avoids eating gluten at least 8 hours before we see each other because I've been glutened before due to that:-(

No you are not alone. My hsuband of 33 years mostly can only kiss me on the cheek if he has eaten gluten. Which he does everyday.

Sadly even if your partner brushes teeth and uses mouthwash a night of romance will make you sick.

It is very annoying!!

My hub brushes and flosses and rinses and he doesn't make me sick! Unless being with your husband just makes you sick even without gluten?

Drives me up a freakin wall, but I have had to make sure my husband's toothpaste is gluten free because he refuses to switch to my Earthpaste.  <_< But if your partner is brushing with a toothpaste or using a mouthwash with gluten in it, then all they are doing is brushing and swishing around the gluten with more gluten!

In the US, what toothpaste or mouthwash has gluten?

None that I know of, but I check anyway and recheck things once a year just to keep on top. I'd hate to start getting sick and not know why and it was from stupid random thing like that. I've said it before, but I am the most paranoid person I know. :ph34r: I'd still just feel better if he used what I use, it is chemical free.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
