I am undiagnosed, but gave up gluten just a few weeks ago. I messed up one night and ate something I tthought was safe and wasn't and broke out in an itchy hive-like rash. As we speak I am getting a pedicure...as soon as she put the lotion on my legs they immediately start itching like crazy and I have a rash/hives. This never happened prior to giving up the gluten. Could their be gluten in the lotion and now I am more sensitive from giving it up? Thank you all for your help!

 There are many things in lotions that a person can be allergic to. It is very possible that since giving up gluten, other allergies decided to rear their heads (an example of this would be how i found out about my tomato allergy after going gluten free).

 

I would find out what the lotion was, and try to find out what was in it.

Thank you! I tried to read the bottle but all they say is "For professional use only." I didn't realize other things could rear up like that. Crazy! I will try to research the ingrediants online. I appreciate your help!

I am in the same spot.  Gave it up last summer, but since then, I am very sensitive to many things, and the least bit of gluten sets me off.  I am having a bad week this week, because of a piece of birthday cake last week.  Still paying for it.

I have a long list of physical ailments that were being grouped into age/gender by doctors.

Began Gluten Free and Casein Free after an Allergy Test trying to find answers to health problems that the doctors just were not answering well enough. Looking back through history, I have a lifetime of allergies and gastro issues.

It is so strange! I have never had reactions like this before, and to so many things. To me it is just an indicator that I made the right decision to give it up. Obviously my body does not appreciate it! So glad I found this website and I am able to talk to people with the same issues :)
