Pistachio Pudding Was Not A Good Idea.

4 posts in this topic

So I ate some sour starbursts on Thursday I think, and my mouth broke out in all kinds of irritation, those famous celiac mouth sores. I have clusters of mouth ulcers between my lip and gum, under my tongue, on my soft palate, and I think even on my throat. Even my tongue hurts. That was mistake number one, though I've never had that kind of reaction to sour starburst before.

I also have an oral allergy to tree nuts. I'm eating some pistachio pudding, and my mouth hurts worse. That was mistake number two. It's weird though, because pistachios aren't tree nuts, they're in the cashew family with mangoes. The cashew family doesn't count as tree nuts...what gives? I don't think I've had any problems with pistachios before, though it's been ages since I've had them so who knows.

Hi, Penguin!

Mouth sores this time of year might not necessarily be a food intolerance or allergy. The only time I ever had mouth and throat sores was when we all came down with the Cocksackie Virus, when Son #2 started daycare. It's extremely contagious, and seems to be everywhere right after the kids go back to school (and then the moms carry it to places like the supermarket shopping cart handles, etc). None of us had fevers, colds, or any other sign of illness--just those extrememly uncomfortable sores on the throat, in the mouth, and even some on our hands--ugh.

Either way, I hope you feel better very soon!

Thanks! You know what, I'm sure that's it. I haven't had sores in a LONG TIME and they never did the whole mouth thing. I feel like I have a cold and that explains it. There was a toddler in my office a few days ago, I bet that's where it came from. It's refreshing to have a virus for a change! :rolleyes:

Oh, well, the good news is the whole thing is 3-5 days and then you're done. Lots and lots of hot chicken soup and hot licorice tea (very soothing for the sore throat) and hot lemonade (after the sores start to heal , so the acid from the lemonade doesn't sting). Pee those germs out and flush'em down the toilet! :lol:

    • 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'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.😞
