Ok, I am sure you are all getting tired of my posts but I have so many questions that are popping up as I read others posts.

If my husband has a regular beer or sandwich do I need to avoid kissing him?

Is it true if someone uses a knife in the peanut butter and then spreads it on their bread and then back in to the jar I need to avoid that jar?

This all just seems so crazy! :o I am waiting for someone to say if you look at wheat now you will get sick! :P Alright, JK. It just amazes me how careful you have to be. :(

My husband says I don't have to worry about my hair products if they contain wheat, is this true?

Nope--not tired of your posts at all, ask away! :D

If your husband has eaten or drank gluten, ask him to brush his teeth and rinse well before kissing you.

Yes--you would need to avoid a jar that was contaminated by someone using a knife on wheat bread and then putting that knife back into the jar. It's best to have separate jars for things like peanut butter--you can use squeeze containers for ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc to make it simpler.

As for the personal care products--that's a personal decision. I stick with gluten-free hair care and soaps--others do fine to use products with wheat or oats. If you continue to have reactions while using them, try switching to a gluten-free brand and see if it makes a difference for you.

The gluten doesn't go through the skin, but there's a good chance you could get a small amount in your mouth, and for some of us thats enough to cause a reaction.

Thanks! Great song by Kenny. Just saw him in concert in Tampa, FL :)

Think of gluten as raw chicken. You can't necessarily see the raw chicken juices, but if you wiped a knife on a raw chicken, then stuck it in a jar of peanut butter, would you really want that peanut butter?

I avoid kissing my husband right after he's had gluten, as he may have trace amounts on his lips, and could certainly have some in between his teeth, which the amylase (enzyme) in the mouth is not going to break down.

And I avoid personal products with wheat/oats because I don't want to have to be careful about my hands going near my mouth after I've put on lotion, or hair going in my mouth after I've conditioned it. (Toothpaste, you certainly have to be careful of. I would say the same with chapstick/lip balm and anything else that goes in/on the mouth.) (I don't wear makeup - despite being female - so I haven't even had to think about that one. ;) )

:D Sounds great--I've not seen him in concert yet, but would love to.

If you do go and see Kenny, spend the money to get up front. He is that good and next time we will spend two to three hundred per ticket. We don't go to many concerts but this one is worth it!
