Small Clear Mouth Blisters
0

10 posts in this topic

Could this be a sign of a gluten or wheat intolerance?

I get small pimple sized blisters inside the bottom lip, full of what appears to be a clear fluid, gradually appear and then disapper over a 24 hour period.

I have noticed they appear after eating white bread. I am not sure if it is a coincidence or not???

I googled mouth blisters and celiac and found posts mainly about blood blisters and ulcers. Has anyone got these small clear blisters? Any ideas?

I have gotten these since I was a kid. I don't know what causes them, but I don't think it is necessarily gluten related. My husband gets them alot as well.

It is funny that you posted this. I woke up this morning with one! I was like what the heck is this? I thought maybe I was biting my cheeks or something. I dont know what they are from. I googled them and people mostly said they were nothing. Since going gluten free Ive had some weird symptoms. I never had a skin rash until gluten-free and Ive had cold sores but I dont remember having blisters in my mouth. Maybe its a digestive issue. Anyone know?

I used to get them and also canker sores on gums and inside cheeks - but they all disappeared when I went gluten free.

My brother had the same experience - and they only come back if we eat gluten.

Actually, when we(celiacs) eat gluten, we get mal-absorption/ mal-nutrition which is what causes the mouth and tongue sores, blisters, rashes breakouts, headaches, diarrhea(we all know), easy bruising, hair loss, muscle loss, itching and can slow the healing of cuts . These are also the symptoms of mal-nutrition/ mal-absorption For me, it only takes a very small drop of gluten. I will be sick for 3-4 weeks and very very tired. This is what a lot of us experience. Having gluten can also lower our resistance to the flu and colds. I know a lot of you know this but there are a few that don't so i thought I'd let them know.

I hope this helps :)

I get one of those, on the roof of my mouth (soft palate) about once a month. I haven't bothered to keep track of whether it is caused by anything, though. It pops up in the same place every time. i just pop it and go on with my day.

I agree, I just pop it with a sterilized pin. I know it might not be the best thing but, chewing on it and rubbing my tongue over it aren't good either. My dentist once told me they are trapped saliva bubles. I had an infected saliva gland once, under my tongue and it felt a lot like these bubbles.

I just read an article that said that mouth sores can be a sign of gluten sensitivity. I found this post because I just got a mouth sore randomly after I ate a corn tortilla processed in a factory that also uses wheat. (Forgot to read the label... :huh: )

Mine was not a bubble. It was more like a white pit, cavern or depression - surrounded by red inflammation. I think I have had the bubble variety too. But there is no way to pop this one, and it has been seriously painful for the past several days. Hoping it will go away soon. (And very sad that I can't eat my favorite brand's corn tortillas.)

I guess it could be something else I ate as well, but the reaction was pretty immediate after eating said tortilla.

Same thing happened to me yesterday. I am usually gluten free but thought maybe once won't matter. So I ate something with gluten and today I have tiny clear blisters in my cheek. They don't pop either.

I haven't gotten glutened, but for the past couple of weeks I've been getting them too. I get the canker sores on my gums, and the blisters on the roof of my mouth. I'm not sure, but I THINK it might be because I have been eating more ice cream lately. I have lost so much weight and am still losing, I thought if I ate more ice cream I could stay at my current weight which is exactly where I want to be. Bad idea I guess. I'm going to go off ice cream for a few weeks and see if they go away.

    • Based on the information you have posted today, the most likely probable reason for your being ill is that you are getting glutened!  Here is a biggie....does your hubby brush his teeth prior to kissing you?  Seriously, it can happen, but going out to eat a lot.....that is just as bad!  
    • I got glutened last summer.  Heck, I do not even know what glutened me, but I suspect two products that my gluten-free hubby never consumed (he is my canary).  My symptoms were so different from when I was diagnosed (just had anemia then).  My GI thought I had SIBO or something else, but I asked for a celiac panel.  Yep, I had been Glutened!  Took me three months to recover and another three to regain lost weight.  Yeah, I picked up another health issue on the way (hives, rashes, swelling, itching, ab pain, vomiting, and fainting.)   I did not eat out for one year!  Only this summer, I did.  Was it worth the risk?  You bet!  Three weeks in Europe.  Fortunately,  7 days was on a cruise and Celebrity did a great job.  Italy was so celiac-savvy and I did my research and found places recommended by other celiacs in Spain, France and Poland.  If not, we bought cold food at the market and had a picnic.   I am home.  Will I eat out?  Probably not.  I have a busy Fall ahead of me (High School....football, marching band, volunteer positions, house projects, and work).  I can not afford to be sick.   Ah, I will eat out this Thanksgiving break.  My favorite restaurant is 100% gluten free in Tucson, AZ.   Maybe I will discover another gluten-free restaurant closer to home! 
    • I do est out occasionally - but not indiscriminately.  I am careful to choose places that under stand gluten free.  And places that the food is naturally gluten-free, helps, too.  Celiacs can't just eat something that should be gluten-free and hope it is.  We have to use some common sense and ask questions.  
    • You are right that the next step is an endoscopy, which still is the "gold standard" in diagnosing celiac disease.   However, for various reasons the endoscopy is not done because financial contraints  or long wait times (up to a year!), or too ill to proceed.   You have two positives.  You only need one positive to move forward.    The TTg tests  do not need to be positive for a diagnosis (which requires a positive on an antibodies test which you had and an endoscopy).  My TTg tests were negative and I only had a positive on the DGP IGA, yet biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Unless your PCP is a celiac expert (unlikely), I would insist on a GI consult.   Please find one who is celiac-savvy.   keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete (biopsies done).  You never know if lab results are going to get lost.  Besides any celiac testing requires the patient to be on a gluten diet.  In the meantime, keep on researching.  Only YOU can be your best health advocate!  
    • I'm having some issues, that I didn't really even know I was having until the blood work showed them. Retracing my steps, I eat very strictly gluten free at home. I eat too much dairy (which is not only a problem for many celiacs, it is also not an anti-inflammatory). The husband and I have eaten out a lot over the last three years of my diagnosis. I guess I have not been overly cautious as I should have been, which I'm guessing could be my problems (although I am seeing the GI doctor tomorrow). So, I'm wondering if anyone here no longer eats out ever? Were you eating out and realized you were still doing yourself damage?
