Hey, so on completely gluten free diet and really trying hard to avoid CC. I have seen my girlfriend twice this week and both times i feel gluten-ed after a short time with her. Is her makeup or any of her products really affecting me? I got the name of all her products and have been searching them havnt found any answers though im sure her mascara and maybe powder has gluten but would this affect me?? thx

Could it be that she's kissing you right after eating gluten? That could do it.

She needs to brush her teeth and whatnot before kissing you.

I think this may have been been the case last week when she had a packet of quavers think i spelt that wrong, anyway crisp that had gluten in them. So what about the make up? Ive basically made her check everything she wears and told her to change it if it has gluten. Do we not think it on my face would cause a reaction? Thx for your replys

Any makeup you might ingest. Lipstick might be a concern. You would get it on your mouth. Mascara shouldn't make a difference unless you chew on her eyelashes. :o

Well, I expect "reactions" from him, but they do not involve gluten. ;)

The minuscule amount of wheat that may possibly (read as : remotely) be in a fleck of mascara or eye makeup would not concern me or my hubs at all.

Lipstick is the biggest concern for gluten CC in makeup.

And the people who live with WEs and swap spit regularly say BRUSH YOUR TEETH before smooching.

I am sure this is what is happening.

I (briefly) dated a guy in high school who had an anaphalactic allergy to dairy. Literally, if we kissed soon after I ate dairy he was in BIG trouble.

It sounds to me like you are very careful on your own, but if you are THAT sensitive you must be coming in contact with it somewhere.

Anything put on our skin hits our bloodstream in 30 seconds.

It sounds like it is time for a real heart to heart with her to explain the seriousness of your condition and teach her how to be more cautious for your protection.

This is not true. If this were true everything we touched would go into our bodies. There are a very few things that are small enough to go through skin. An example is a nicotine patch which is specially made to be small enought to go through. But not the whole patch, just some cells on the patch.

Not sure where you read that information, but I do not think that is quite true, hon.

If this were the case, we'd be soaking up any number of high levels of chemicals, etc.when taking showers, swimming in pools, splashing paint or gasoline on ourselves accidentally or swimming in the ocean.

And I could probably rub a loaf of Wonderbread on my legs and nothing would happen to me as I do not have a wheat allergy in addition to celiac and it would not somehow get into my blood..

I hear she has her hub's rub his legs with Wonderbread... kinky! :D

Gotta agree with the things not soaking into skin. Some things may do that, but for the most part we don't have a big problem there with everyday items.

Deals88, is it possible you are reacting to a perfume? Some people are sensitive to odors. like perfumes.

    • 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.😞
