I could swear my Immune system is just a system that has been overtaken by a devious, laughing hyena. I am now crazy allergic to vinyl gloves. Really? That's what people wear so they Don't have allergic reactions! Ohhhh Me. I wonder if I am the only one with all kinds of goofy allergies. Well I always wanted to be unique but now I just feel like I should call up Newt Gingrich and ask if he could shoot a little higher and attempt to send me to Mars. I have this deep feeling that I belong there and it was meant to be.

OUCH! Have you reacted to any other vinyl? Like wearing shorts and sitting on the seat in your car? (Double ouch!) There is vinyl everywhere! I'm wondering (and I really have no idea) if those gloves have corn in them. I know the hard plastics do but maybe they're using it in soft plastic now too?

You are not the only one with goofy allergies -- although I call all mine intolerance as I have had multiple allergy tests over the years and am only allergic to dust.

This past year I developed reaction to laytex gloves -- now have to answer yes to that pesky question at every doc appt. Once health and healed I am going to try them again just to make sure it wasn't a one/well three off.

Try Nitrile gloves? If you still have reaction...are you wearing for long periods of time? I am still not certain that my latex glove reaction was not a heat reaction as I am severely intolerant of heat.

I noticed a few years ago that I was breaking out in a rash whenever I used latex gloves. Then I was got a job in a restaurant that used latex gloves and omg, it took about 2 seconds for me to be ripping that thing back off me! I thought I put my hand in a beehive. I keep the nitrile ones at home myself for when I clean, I don't think I've ever tried vinyl but that sounds like a weird thing to have a reaction to.

If it makes you feel any better though I have those days. Suddenly I'll have a weird reaction or something will go wrong or whatever and I'll be like yup... only I could possibly be this screwed up. Then I laugh about it because if I don't I'd have to cry about it.

I have no idea either but it happened once before at another clients home. I remember they were the clear gloves. They had powder in them though so i figured that was why. These gloves today did not. It was the same thing. My hands feel like burning and itching and i happened to wipe my nose qith the bottom of the glove and my nose and lips are on fire. Never had a problem with car interiors so it beats me.

I will be sure to use the beautiful purple nitrile gloves from now on. Who cares if i look like Barney. I wore them for about ten minutes. There it goes I am not the only one defying science. We are getting enough for a small colony now.

You think that until you get back on this forum and talk to all these other people. Oh well we are special. Literally one in a million.

Yes. That is the only way I survive most definitely. I have had plenty frustrating moments...like the day i made hot sauce and that just washing my hands would do just fine. I couldnt wear my contacts for three days. Funny thing is that the recipe mentioned to only prepare in a well ventilated area but didnt mention the acid stays in your skin for a week. Oh the joys of being young and "homemade ignorant". Gonna go buy myself some nitrile gloves just to be safe if a client does not have any.

The purple gloves seem to fit better anyway. And don't think of them as Barney gloves. Think of them as orchid gloves. They really are pretty. :)

I feel like I am falling apart..I was diagnosed w/ celiac disease almost 2 years ago and if anything everything else is falling apart..arthritis, bronchitis, asthma, etc..and now allergies are taking over my life. If I go outside I get lesions; In fact, I get them everywhere..Im wondering if its my laundry soap, shampoo, etc..I have heard people say if you dont ingest it, it wont hurt..Im very careful to eat gluton free, but no matter what I do, my body looks like I have measles. Now I hear corn contains gluton, as well as rice..so now Im trying that..drives me nuts!

Honey, I went through the same confusion. Just to help you understand, sometimes the word "gluten" is used as a broad term to refer to any kind of grain protein. Celiacs do not react to these other proteins like maize or proteins in rice unless they have a leaky gut that caused other allergies. Anyway celiacs react to gliadin. Only in wheat, rye, and barley, and things derived from them often times. Yes, all of your products should be gluten free. Many on here react to gluten when it passes through their nasal passages and then is ultimately swallowed. You can sometimes also have a regular allergy to gluten too. Some people have skin reactions and so on.

Point is that uncontaminated rice and corn is completely safe unless you developed reactions to them because of proteins leaching into your bloodstream from your damaged gut. You can still be getting glutened from cross contamination or from, say your shampoo residue entering your mouth. It can take just a microscopic amount. Hand soaps should be checked. Absolutely everything. You can learn a lot on this forum. It may make you feel a little less hopeless if you share your frustrations and also browse and learn about what other problems you may be having.

Good luck!

    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Celiac after having dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, and a variety of other things. The blood test and biopsy both came back positive so I have been following a strict gluten free diet.  I have been experiencing muscle spasms, frequent face redness all over, and as of lately my toes and fingers have been turning different colours. The most concerning would be my toes as they will go purple. Each toe looks like it has a bruise on it. Is this symptomatic of celiac? I followed up with my family doctor but his only suggestion was to see a dietician, and out I went.  My antibody came back positive, and the titre was high and speckled. Is this related to the celiac? Not much has been explained to me, and I am just trying to understand further! If anyone has any advice, or comments I would be glad to read them!    Thank you  
    • You should get the lymph nodes checked. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet to get the best & most accurate results for celiac disease.
    • try ragu double cheddar sauce
