Was This An Allergic Reaction To Gluten?

5 posts in this topic

ive cut out gluten for awhile, and yesterday I used shampoo body wash and conditioner that contained it. right after i showered i felt sick the whole day. later in the day when i was laying bed, i realized my right side of my tongue was swollen, and when i swallowed it was difficult. today my neck is sore, my throat is scratchy, and still a little hard to swallow. anyway, could i have accidentally ingested a small amount from the products? would it cause the same reaction even if it was just a little bit. im new to this please help me :) :[

If you ingested gluten from the shampoo or body wash, even a little bit accidentally, then yes, it could cause a reaction. Plus, you might not be over your reaction from the glutening by the pumpkin seeds just a couple of days ago...it can take a while for the reaction to gluten to subside. Having said that, throat swelling and difficulty breathing are signs of a serious allergic reaction. If you didn't have difficulty breathing, it might just be a gluten reaction as I have seen people report sore throat from gluten contamination, even though it might not be common.

How are you feeling now? Did the reaction subside fairly quickly?

I only ask when I was thinking that the reaction you mentioned might possibly be a sign of coming down with a nasty case of influenza, too - it often has sudden onset and can cause those symptoms, too. :-(

Have you been tested for an allergy to wheat, rye, or barley? If you haven't been, and the reaction was an allergic one and was enough to cause problems in your throat and mouth like that, I would really encourage you to get tested and get an epipen.

The amount of wheat in a shampoo or conditioner is not much, and to cause this? It's a good bet that bigger hit with wheat could put your life in danger. An epipen sounds like a real necessity.
