so, i was wondering if using face soaps and makeup with oats or gluten in them really cause symptoms. because it seems to me that since it's applied on the face and you're not ingesting it, it wouldn't cause problems. <_< if it does cause problems, let me know how severe they are please. i would like to know which soaps and makeups you use that are gluten-free, or that don't cause problems. :)

thanks!

I have found with me that if I do use "questionable products" that its just extrememly important if i dont get it anywhere near my mouth. I have had this problem with shampoo making its way to get on my lips or tounge. That is just me though, and I am pretty sensitive to gluten and oats. But yep, if you would like to play it safe that is always good, or else just try to advoide the mouth! Best of wishes!

I would just steer clear of skin/hair products with oats and gluten. Pretty mmuch anything you 'apply' to yourself you put on with your hands, then you touch your food, ect. In my case I also break out in hives if I use a lotion or something with gluten/oats in it so I have to be extra careful. Anyway, it's always good to be on the safe side.

Gluten cannot normally be absorbed through the skin. However, you cannot use those products on your FACE. It's too close to the lips; you could actually ingest some of it. Don't use them on your hands either. You touch everything, including your face and lips more often than you think. Also, if you are going to school, and doing stuff in the laboratory don't use them at all. Some of the chemicals in the lab can make it so you absorb gluten through your skin, DMSO for example. I don't use anything like that, but that's because I'm studying to be a chemist. Otherwise there shouldn't be a problem, unless you develop a skin allergy to them. That is possible and more likely if you already have Celiac's. It's not too hard to develop a second autoimmune disorder in regards to a certain substance when you already have one.
