For those of you who get mouth sores as symptom of gluten ingestion -- what exactly are they like? I've been getting these blister looking things in the back of my throat mainly, but have also popped up a couple of other places in my mouth. They will "go away", but as soon as I eat, they flair up (enlarge) for a while, then will go back down. I've read that mouth sores are a symptom of Celiac, but wasn't sure if it was more the cold sore type mouth sores or something like I am experiencing. Just wondering if it's related to gluten or something entirely different. I'm still ingesting gluten, unfortunately, am feeling worse and worse, but my EGD isn't until Aug. 23rd -- so two more weeks! Anwyays -- if anybody has any experience w/ this, please share.
Thanks in advance!!!

I usualyy get moth sores when I eat gluten and they can appear anywhere from an hour or two to the next morning. They are always on my cheeks, they feel like a bad cheek bite. Before diagnosis, when I was eating a lot of gluten- they were also on the roof of the mouth- toward the back- almost felt like a burn.
Sometimes I rinse with warm salt water, but they usually go away in a day or so.
I would avoid any alcohol-based mouthwashes when they are present, because it irritates it further.
