Hi there
Wasn't sure where to put this but just lately, about last week, I have found myself itching roof of mouth with tongue - very itchy. I have had this in the past but had forgotten all about it. Now it's back.
Have been having some chocolate lately (which I can't eat) so although no gluten ingredients, guess I'm getting cc'd.

Battled candida for ten years in the past (thought my celiac was candida :wacko: ) but now I'm wondering.
Not wishing to muddy the waters with another theory but anyone else get this itchy mouth?

(PS. Get itchy inner ears sometimes too but believe this to be associated with thyroid).

Yes, definitely allergy symptom. I get that with many of my food allergies. It is often the first symptom when I develop a new one. I have a chocolate allergy but there are other ingredients in chocolate that can be allergens as well, soy and dairy. You should consider reporting it to an allergist. Look for one who is used to running large panels for foods and belives in elimination even if you don't have anaphylaxis. Many mainstream allergist don't really bother with foods and won't recommend elimination/avoidance unless someone has a severe reaction. I find that I get big payoff by avoiding my "milder" food allergies.

Think you could be right.
Have noticed today itchy lumps back of roof of mouth and these are where the itch is coming from. Also some itchy face around mouth.
Well, I shouldn't be eating choc anyway as have big issues with soy - don't know what I'm thinking this week :blink: . (Just rubbed my face then)!

I have an unfriendly soy allergy. There are chocolates with no soy out there. I could have no soy, no dairy and had to watch the sugar carefully for a while and I still found a couple options...until I ended up allergic to the chocolate itself. I have been abe to gain back a few foods after long avoidance but my allergist has a protocol I follow for re-introduction and a different protocol for foods that are riskier for me. I am currently enjoying a little chocolate again-soy and dairy-free ;) on an occasional basis, after maybe a year avoidance.

Wanna know something funny? My allergy to tomatos mainly shows up as burning on my head neck and sholders, like a really bad sunburn without the redness. Though i once had it turn part of my tounge numb. Took it to my allergist and he said yep (along with the positive skin test, one of the biggest hives he's seen on it)
