I'm sure that I can not be the ONLY person that gets these things. It is like an out of control taste bud. It swells up and turns white/clear and HURTS like crazy! Anyone know what causes these? Mineral defiency/food allergy/dehydration/crazyness :lol: ? Any ideas.....thoughts....anybody share the pain?

I get these from time to time too, but I have never figured out why. At one point I thought it was from walnuts, but I eat those all the time now and so far so good. And I thought they were from eating too much citrus, but I haven't retested that one.

But, they do hurt. I used orajel in the past and tried to leave it alone until it healed. Usually only takes a couple of days. But, I'm not sure if orajel is gluten free. I'm not that savy yet. :)

It is probably an infected taste bud. I have gotten them from time to time too. I usually make sure to rinse with Listerine a few extra times a day to help speed healing.

Yep lol and when you have one of those little buggers it sure seems to be the ONLY thing you can concentrate on. It rubs on your teeth, rubs on your lips....rubs everywhere to make it sting! Geesh lol

I did find a little info on them...they are sometimes called "lie bumps" supposedly mom's used to tell their kids that if they lied...then that is what the result would be...... :lol:

Here are a couple of links of info....the people there didn't really come to any conclusion, but presented some interesting info.

I get them sometimes as well.. don't know if I really used to get them before going gluten free (too many things/symptoms to try and recall), but I want to say that I occasionally did.. I certainly have been getting them in the past month or 2 though... more frequently than I ever remember getting them

I didn't think of connecting them to food until I saw something in a post here (I think it was the long corn post by Rachel)... I looked them up on the net a couple weeks ago, and it seems that any one of a number of things could cause them (food related or not)... don't know if mine is a food trigger (I'm thinking maybe something acidic like tomato sauce but I don't know)..

I have had those for 7 or 8 years, better now. first was diagnosed/ lichen planus by dental surgeon, then to dermatologist / diagnosis of citricidal pemphigoid, he sent the swab to Mayo clinic. Dapsone has kept me more comfortable for several years, after going gluten free for almost 6 months & cutting out several foods I have been able to cut down the dosage considerably but still have to get liver panel evry few months. will see him wed. and will probably need to get tested then. Maybe he will order my thyroid test too, time for that again. No, I will get that order from my reg. Dr & get it all done @ same time!! so from my reading this could have been a warning for gluten intolernce (mouth sores is one of the symptoms) but I did not know it
and no one told me (none of my many Dr's, too many). Did none of you/ mouth sores (tongue, gum & cheeks not have these before gluten problems? :( <_< evie

Have you called your toothpaste and mouthwash companies to find out if their products contain gluten, corn soy or anything you know you are intolerant of?

I was shocked the other day to find out that Arm & Hammer Baking Soda toothpaste has gluten in it.

I used to get these all the time, but I haven't had any in years, since long before going gluten-free. The only thing I can think is that maybe brushing with peroxide and baking soda has had something to do with it.

When I first started doing it, my method was to dip the brush in a 50:50 peroxide:water mix, flick off the excess, then touch it to dry baking soda. Some time ago I switched to making a paste of coconut oil mashed with as much baking soda as it will hold instead of using dry baking soda.

This is highly economical, but the taste takes a little getting used to if you are used to the taste of toothpaste.

I've gotten those from time to time to. ...In my case, usually when I was eating a lot of candy or sweets. Mouth washes have helped speed healing, reduce pain.

I get these all the time. For me, too many sweets or spicy foods can cause it. I heard dipping a q-tip in witch hazel and dotting it on the swollen taste bud can help. Also, I've heard b-12 deficiency can make u more susceptible..not sure if its true or not.


BTW, I also get weird bumps at the back of my tongue, on the sides..especially if im coming down with a virus or if ive eaten something irritating...
