Pistachio Pudding Was Not A Good Idea.
0

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.

Ideas?

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:
