Laundry Detergent

Recommended Posts

On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I was in the ER for a severe allergic reaction to "something". I had bad, bad hives, terrible itching, and my heart rate was almost 170 bpm. It was never figured out what the problem was but I think it was my laundry detergent~ GAIN brand.

Is there a tie between Celiac and detergent that you know of? Maybe some ingredient in it?

Has anyone else experience this?

When I travel or sleep at someone elses house when I wake up I always have a rash all over my tummy. It doesn't hurt but I have always gotten it since I was young. When I go on big long trips I take my own sheets and usually don't get the rash until the end if the trip.

Don't know of a connection and don't know of a detergent that has gluten. And allergic reactions have nothing to do with celiac, which is not an allergy. The symptoms you describe don't sound like celiac.
