Flushed Face, Too?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks again everyone! I'm now trying to figure out my red flushed face. It comes and goes and now has happened after the "lasagna" incident. But here it is 5 days later and eating (not every meal ) will bring out a red flushed burning face and lips........of course like an allergic reaction? Can't link it to dairy cause I skipped that today, too......help!!!

I used to get that when I would have sugary drinks and it was before I was diagnosed. For me it was when I also had bad bacteria in my stomach and I think the sugar would make it react. Maybe try to keep track of when it happens also wouldnt hurt to do a cycle of some anti-bacterials like raw garlic, oil of oregano type of thing. once i got rid of the bad bacteria red face stopped.

Rosacea can do that also--- another autoimmune disorder! Nightshade vegetables have caused some irritations of the skin .

For me at times I can eat a food my itself but when I add another food with it something weird happens & I have a terrible reaction..... go figure exept I'm very sensitive to planet earth......

I get a different kind of flushed face (just a feeling of heat) which I can't figure out either, but I've been reading up, and here are the results of that research. Don't be alarmed; I'm not suggesting that any or all of these apply to you. They're just possibilities.

Niacin overdose (last paragraph; seems unlikely): http://www.merck.com/mmpe/sec01/ch004/ch004d.html

Hypoglycemia (more likely me than you): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactive_hypoglycemia

Burning mouth (hope this isn't it): http://mayoclinic.com/health/burning-mouth...ECTION=symptoms

Suspect that one of the suggestions already posted probably is right, but just wanted you to see these. I like to think that none of them are likely culprits, but you never know. Good luck.

Oh, I know this one!

This is a food allergy reaction to MSG, sulfites/ sulfates and nitrates/nitrites-- in my case at least. There may be other things that do this to you guys in particular, but for me these are the culprits. It can actually feel like a sunburn and it shows up roughly 20-40 minutes after eating whatever it was. It might last a couple of hours.

This can actually be the beginnnings of a serious allergic reaction and it will get worse. I would put in a serous effort to figure out what it is you are reacting to so you can eliminate it. These things are in processed foods.

Go to about.com and check out these three allergies-- they have a list of common foods these things are in.

Well, you have to figure out which chemical is the culprit.

Start with msg. You can buy it (the actually sell it as a flavor enhancer) or you can get a soup or a fish sauce that has it in it and eat a little bit. If you get the reaction, then you know.

The same for nitrates and sulfites. If you go to the about.com site for food allergies and search these, it gives you a list of the foods that have them in it.

Nitrates are in most lunch meats, for example. Sulfites and in vineagar, wine, dried fruit, etc.

You might have more than one-- I have the holy trinity. Of the three, sulfites are probably the most dangerous, but msg is pretty bad too.

Good luck figuring it out!

    • More and more, people are adopting a gluten-free diet due to perceived health and weight-loss benefits. A team of researchers recently set out to ask people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity about their views on the health effects of gluten, and safety of vaccines and gluten-free food products.

    • Welcome!   Get that follow-up testing.  At least help  confirm that you are compliant with the diet and that celiac disease is not the root cause of your brain fog and anxiety.  Once ruled out, your doctors can focus on other possible AI issues that are beyond your control (unlike celiac disease).  For now, you can focus on a good healthy diet.  Consider a modified AIP diet.  I just read a study involving this diet and IBD (autoimmune) done by Scripps in San Diego.  There was a 77% remissions rate.  Amazing!  This can (in theory)  be applied to other autoimmune issues.  It helps to validate that diet can heal.   http://journals.lww.com/ibdjournal/Pages/ArticleViewer.aspx?year=2017&issue=11000&article=00021&type=Fulltext here are some follow-up guidelines: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ Hang in there.  Consider Ennis’ tips too, but I prefer and do well without supplements.  My doctor has checked me for deficiencies and so should yours.  You need to really  figure out what is best for you (food, supplements, etc.) 
    • I have seen info that children's antibodies can drop very quickly.  The lucky little guys!
    • I think if you search through this section of the forum, you will find that many children see a quick drop in their antibodies.  Recovery can come fast or slow  in both kids and adults.  We are all different!   I can tell you that my antibodies are still high, yet I had a repeat biopsy done last week showing healthy villi (Marsh Stage IIIB at diagnosis five years ago).  So, here I was beating myself up for having elevated antibodies which made it look as if I was not diet compliant, and I was actually healed.  Researchers  have not done a lot of studies about repeating the antibodies tests after diagnosis to monitor progress (lack of funding for sure).  Repeat antibodies testing is not perfect, but it is the only tool in the box right now.   We suspect my antibodies (DGP IgA only positive on the panel ever)  are up for other reasons (e.g. my Hashimoto’s, another AI issue, residuals from a previous gluten exposure).   I do have symptoms but these were attributed to other  things including chronic gastritis which, since I do not have active celiac disease, h. Pylori, drink alcohol, and am allergic to NSAIDs and other meds, is probable autoimmune.   Great job on keeping him safe!  I am glad he is feeling better.  He is seeing results from the diet which helps confirm the diagnosis.    Systemic issues can take longer to heal, so just keep moving forward.  
    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
