Is This Possible?

Recommended Posts

TI do not get sick by walking pass a bakery, but the odors do make me feel ill. I no longer can stand the smell. Also, when I walk pass them, I do pay special attention to my breathing, and move by quickly.

lol...i hold my breath :P not that it would be effective...

For the sake of summation --feel free to post after me if I incorrectly sum-- we decided...

-Gluten can be inhaled and swallowed, thus causing a reaction

-Gluten can get on your fingers and into your mouth (hangnails, said hair on tongue, small children)

-Wheat can irritate your skin if you have a wheat allergy

-And you may have skin sensitivities to other things, possibly acidic liquids like vinegar and citrus juice

-Also, gluten itself does not cause reactions through the skin in Celiacs without a wheat allergy

most informative :P

Yup Rya, very well put. Like my mom always says: Never say never! That which effects one person, does not always effect another, AND, just because it doesn't effect one, does not mean it isn't so!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Yeah, I went back to work as a breakfast attendant/concierge, and I was wearing this one ring I love, and after a little while I realized I was getting a horrible bumpy itchy rash (just like when I had DH) under the ring, where I'm assuming crumbs would get caught. No more rings.... sigh....
