Strange question, but I keep getting blood blisters and canker sores in my mouth. Is this a sign of being glutened??

Thanks :-P

It certainly could be. I always get a canker sore when glutened and before I was diagnosed, I would frequently get them and sometimes a blood blister, too.

I never get the blisters anymore. :)

Thanks. I never really thought of it until now. I used to have them all the time, and then went gluten free, and now today I am not feeling hot and noticed I have a few blood blisters.....

Hrrrrmmmm....wonder what it was that got me?!?!?

I got a really nasty one at the back of my throat after eating flavoured crisps. It started to choke me a bit but then fortunately popped leaving me with a mouth full of blood. Nice!

I got one at the weekend from Free From biscuits, which are really hard and crunchy, so maybe it's because the food scratches the cheek and lets a foreign substance enter the bloodstream? Maybe the body creates a blister to isolate it or wash it away?

The blood blisters in my mouth are the direct result of eating foods that are either cooked or stored in aluminum. Aluminum contamination is the worst but I also can get them from foods cooked in poor quality stainless steel and other metals. A week ago I ate a small box of baked crackers that were packaged in aluminum foil and had an unusually severe blister reaction. I have resorted to using only glass cook ware and will buy only crackers, etc. packaged in paper or plastic. This is an easy hypothesis to prove for yourself through simple avoidance.... My dentist several years ago put me through a rather expensive test to determine my sensitivity to dental materials which included a test for sensitivity to metals..... Aluminum, copper and moledneum topped the list of toxics for me.... Harry
