In Topic: Does Anyone Else Experience This?

I am 100% off of gluten. I have made sure that I don't have any contact at all if I can help it. I still break out in these rashes. I don't know what could be causing it. The doctor says it's allergies. I am off gluten, chocolate, and anything with dyes or colors. It doesn't seem possible to live without breaking out in a rash. Sometimes I just wished I lived in a bubble. Does anyone else feel like that?

Raising hands & jumping up & down here! Me, me, me, me, me --- where's my bubble? :lol:

Me too!! I definitely need a bubble!!

Been tested, and mine is gluten related! I've had to cut back on body washes and hair care products. I'm still learning...

In Topic: Myths About Gluten In Everyday Non Edible Objects?

03 February 2013 - 09:35 AM

There is no scientific evidence to back this but I find it interesting that when I have used products with gluten, they cause problems . Not typical problems found when ingesting gluten, but other issues... For example....

Suntan lotion w G = very red sun burn, gluten-free= nice tan
Hand and body lotion w G= sticky skin, gluten-free lotion= soft, silky skin
Shampoo w G= frizzy hair, GFshampoo =soft, silky hair
G mascara= red, itchy eyes, lash breakage, gluten-free mascara = long, lush eyelashes
G eye shadow = red eyes, loses color, gluten-free eyeshadow = clear eyes, longer lasting
Make up w G = pimples, gluten-free make up, clear skin
G soap = dry flaky skin or sticky residue, gluten-free soap normal skin
G laundry soap = itchy clothes or sheets

Does anyone else see weird reactions similar to these?


In Topic: Gluten Binges... Help

Oh yes, drink plenty of water - I find processed food, choc and of course, gluten are totally dehydrating and I once read somewhere that you can mistakenly think of eating when in fact you are thirsty - so have a glass of water first, just in case!

I have noticed that when I drink water/crystal light - I am less likely to binge eat!! Thanks for the advice Lady Eowyn!!

In Topic: Interesting, Gluten Topicals Reaction? :o

03 February 2013 - 09:22 AM

From the best of my understanding it doesn't absorb into your bloodstream, the more likely option is that you used these products and then put your hands/fingers near your mouth and thats how the culprit got in. Or, as you were washing the shampoo/body wash off, some ran over your lips and you may have licked your lips afterwards - it only takes a small amount... :( Feel better!!!

I had a similar issue with shampoo and body wash! I had been getting a slight rash for awhile, but didn't think anything about it! It wasn't until after I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in early January and I cut out all gluten that the reactions got worse. I got out of the shower one Sunday afternoon and was completely covered in red splotches!! I immediately bought new shampoo (Garnier Fructis) and body wash (Dove). I completely understand how you felt. I have had issues with lotions and makeup as well and I am still figuring things out. It's gonna be trial and error for a while.

I do hope you are feeling better!!

In Topic: Possible Sudden Increase In Sensitivity?

03 February 2013 - 09:06 AM

I am a newly diagnosed Celiac - diagnosed in early January of this year. I went almost two weeks without getting glutened. When it did happen I had lots f sneezing, scratchy throat, bloating, horrible gas, and uncontrollable diarrhea. It took me a few day for me to figure out what caused the reaction. I found out through a friend that it was Miracle Whip - the modified food starch is what got me.
