Flushed Face, Too?
0

7 posts in this topic

Thanks again everyone! I'm now trying to figure out my red flushed face. It comes and goes and now has happened after the "lasagna" incident. But here it is 5 days later and eating (not every meal ) will bring out a red flushed burning face and lips........of course like an allergic reaction? Can't link it to dairy cause I skipped that today, too......help!!!

I used to get that when I would have sugary drinks and it was before I was diagnosed. For me it was when I also had bad bacteria in my stomach and I think the sugar would make it react. Maybe try to keep track of when it happens also wouldnt hurt to do a cycle of some anti-bacterials like raw garlic, oil of oregano type of thing. once i got rid of the bad bacteria red face stopped.

Rosacea can do that also--- another autoimmune disorder! Nightshade vegetables have caused some irritations of the skin .

For me at times I can eat a food my itself but when I add another food with it something weird happens & I have a terrible reaction..... go figure exept I'm very sensitive to planet earth......

I get a different kind of flushed face (just a feeling of heat) which I can't figure out either, but I've been reading up, and here are the results of that research. Don't be alarmed; I'm not suggesting that any or all of these apply to you. They're just possibilities.

Niacin overdose (last paragraph; seems unlikely): http://www.merck.com/mmpe/sec01/ch004/ch004d.html

Hypoglycemia (more likely me than you): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactive_hypoglycemia

Burning mouth (hope this isn't it): http://mayoclinic.com/health/burning-mouth...ECTION=symptoms

Suspect that one of the suggestions already posted probably is right, but just wanted you to see these. I like to think that none of them are likely culprits, but you never know. Good luck.

Oh, I know this one!

This is a food allergy reaction to MSG, sulfites/ sulfates and nitrates/nitrites-- in my case at least. There may be other things that do this to you guys in particular, but for me these are the culprits. It can actually feel like a sunburn and it shows up roughly 20-40 minutes after eating whatever it was. It might last a couple of hours.

This can actually be the beginnnings of a serious allergic reaction and it will get worse. I would put in a serous effort to figure out what it is you are reacting to so you can eliminate it. These things are in processed foods.

Go to about.com and check out these three allergies-- they have a list of common foods these things are in.

Well, you have to figure out which chemical is the culprit.

Start with msg. You can buy it (the actually sell it as a flavor enhancer) or you can get a soup or a fish sauce that has it in it and eat a little bit. If you get the reaction, then you know.

The same for nitrates and sulfites. If you go to the about.com site for food allergies and search these, it gives you a list of the foods that have them in it.

Nitrates are in most lunch meats, for example. Sulfites and in vineagar, wine, dried fruit, etc.

You might have more than one-- I have the holy trinity. Of the three, sulfites are probably the most dangerous, but msg is pretty bad too.

Good luck figuring it out!

    • 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 longer....well...it'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.😞
