Kissing someone drinking beer

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm newly diagnosed with Celiac and i have zero symptoms except dermatitis - and now starting to develop a few other symptoms but nothing like the dermatitis.  Having said that, I'm being SUPER CONSCIOUS of eliminating all gluten but my friends ask if I kiss someone that is drinking beer is that considered "cross-contamination" and could cause me to obtain gluten by kissing?  What's your thoughts?

I make sure I don't kiss my S.O. Unless he's brushed his teeth. Food from his glutinous meals could cross contaminate me. I don't share straws or drinks with anyone eating or drinking gluten. I'm extremely paranoid about being glutened and I'm pretty sensitive to it so it's best to be on the safe side.

I second that, no kissing until teeth are brushed with gluten free toothpaste and mouthwash. Also if kissing a woman make sure lipstick, gloss, balm are gluten free. My S.O. treats it like a severe food allergy and our home is gluten free.

Yeah this is a common issue it was discussed you should not kiss anyone that has eaten gluten in 24-36hours. I forgot where the article on this was but I was thinking there was some thing from a study done. -_-  I do not think brushing would be enough. I would also be afraid of reintroduction of gluten to the mouth with a contaminated tooth brush but I could be paranoid I always get a new one after a issue with a gluten CC.
