Sores In My Nose

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received my Dx last week and have been gluten-free for 7 days . . . thankfully, the pain in my gut has subsided.  However, i noticed one of the symptoms of celiac is mouth sores.  I don't have these, but i have been having chronic sores in my nose for months.  Does anyone else have this?  Do these issues resolve themselves as the body heals?  In the meantime, how do you treat?

I used to have those when I was eating gluten. I never even thought about it being gluten connected, and I never even consciously noticed that they have gone away now, but they have. I had issues with mouth sores AFTER going gluten-free for a while. Those have stopped now too. I would say just give it time.

Like bartfull, I get mouth sores more often than the nose ones... but I do get them once in a while.  I'm not sure if they were from celiac or something else though... it's one of those really common symptoms it seems.

It's my understanding that a person absorbes 70% of your fluid intake in your small intestines.  If the intestines are damaged..no absorption.  Hydrate yourself as much as possible, and in time, you may feel better. ;)

Nose is lined with mucous membrane, makes sense to me that it could be celiac connected. I have issues with mouth sores. I think a lot of my issues are from vitamin deficiencies, but I also had what I think was a gluten reaction and my mouth was immediately burny, like I had small sores over it and then decided to swish lemon juice around, when I ate the food.

Look into all the vitamin deficiencies that cause mouth sores, (I think that's most of them...) dose up on them for awhile and see if it gets better. And the usual, make sure you're not ingesting gluten where you think it isn't.

keep an eye on it.  The human nose is a really "dirty" spot.  make sure they don't get infected.

Thank you all for your responses.  I had to go to the dr. yesterday because I have the respiratory crud.  I mentioned the sores in my nose to her and she said they could be celiac-related.  She told me to use neosporin just inside the nostril, which I am starting.  I am a bit anxious to see what the antibiotic she prescribed does to my tummy over the course of treatment.  It seems that anything that will affect a person's tummy affects mine way more intensely . . .

    • Respected consumer advocacy group Public Citizen is calling for the FDA to ban the sale Benicar, due to the potential for side effects to which Public Citizen refers as "life-threatening." According to Public Citizen, olmesartans risks outweigh any benefits. Should Benicar be banned? View the full article
    • The thing is.  They didn't have to say anything about gluten free food.  They didn't have to put that mean-spirited dig in there at all.  They could have just showed the awesome thing for serving food.  People with food sensitivities would have just substituted gluten-free or peanut free food in their minds.  Just like anyone would have said - I hate cucumbers - so my party tray won't have that on it.
    • Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that it is gluten making me sick, I don’t want to eat it anymore. Kind of nice I got a “farewell to gluten” tour but so happy it’s over. Unfortunately, there is only one office here in Asheville, NC and it’s renowned for being awful (just look at the reviews!!) I’m on Nashville a lot for work, so maybe I can look for a good doctor there instead. 
    • So PC is not celiac pc? I'm sure fictitious  "Tina" in the ad will discard her "immature anti celiac ad friends" like used napkins and find new friends that are less grossed out by her autoimmune disease.  Or perhaps fictitious "Tina " will patiently educate the baffon friends in the ad. Tina's choice. Another company made a bad choice to join the gluten dude list of celiac bashing in the public media  Hey PC want to attempt to get out of dog house ? contact me for where to send my check For your next marketing idea/ script for your commercial  Your next commercial show two tables one designated gluten-free and one non gluten-free show 2 different color coded themes one gluten-free and non gluten-free example red for gluten-free and black non gluten-free ( whatever game day team colors- catch my drift) showing gluten-free cake served on red plate and non gluten-free cake on other table on black plate. Yo support celiac awareness and safety. this marketing tip per AWOL  contact me for my royalty checks  👍  
    • .....damn I thought I had run into stupid doctors on my own, yours flip flop more then a ADHD kid and I should know that one. Yep celiac and gluten-free for life....get copies of all your POSITIVE test and compile them in a folder, write the others off as doctor stupid was tripping on acid. Get copies of all your medical records and personally take them to a new doctor....might want to look through them first and make sure the idiot did not put anything in there wrong. Well if you can anyway......
      Congrats on the diagnosis and sorry you found one of the idiots, you get those a lot in life just sucks when it is someone in charge of your well-being and health like that. I take it you have already been through the newbie 101 thread and gone to a whole foods diet to boost up the healing, cleaned out the kitchen and set for the haul.
