Hi guys! My doc recently prescribed to me Voltaren Gel 1%.... For joint pain because I'm still in the healing process. I can't seem to find much info about it, and I do feel sorta funny after applying it, anyone have any idea? 


Would it even matter if it had gluten in it given it's a gel?

You must ingest gluten to get a Celiac reaction .   


The gluten protein molecule is too large to absorb thru the skin

I have used Voltaren before, and I experienced that little rush afterward.

I never had any reaction to it, and I can't even use makeup that has wheat germ oil in it. I have also had some fairly violent reactions to other medications.

That little rush faded after a while, but after an increase in the strength of the gel I did feel it again for a day or two.

So from my perspective, it should be ok.
