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!

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....
