The Dr's say its a contact allergy, but I stopped everything found in my allergy tests and the symptoms are still there.  I do not have stomach pain but do have constipation issues and bloating. This is all mostly on my face but the skin on my body is sensitive and tingles a bit. My face has swelled up bright burning red a few times in the last several months.  Itching started then but I don't remember itching when this first started with my lips over 4 months ago.  Does this sound like just an allergy or could it be a gluten allergy?

There isn't really a " gluten allergy".  Sometimes people use that term for Celiac,  but it isn't an allergy to gluten.  The allergy would be to wheat or barley or rye, but not " gluten".
