Lips Hurting

So, I've been gluten free since April, but my lips are still flaring up. Cracking at the corners and puffy and hurting. Is it possible that since my boyfriend works at an Italian restaurant and eating gluten, that when he kisses me, he is accidentally glutening me? If so, what could I do to prevent this?

I have seen a lot about other people reacting to gluten from kisses. But other allergies are common as well and should be a consideration. I have the exact same reaction to corn and high salicylate containing items.

Already have been to the allergist and tested for everything. Unless he has been rubbing his lips with fresh cut grass, it's gotta be the gluten. :P

When he comes home have him wash his face with soap and water and brush his teeth. Works for my husband...And since he works in flour I'd suggest a shower or at least an arm wash/clothing change. He's a walking flour bomb, probably.

I did think I got glutened once after kissing hubs (he drank beer, brushed teeth, and we kissed all within 30 minutes)...but now I'm pretty sure I was glutened 24 hours prior by sushi - was my first 24 hour symptom delay).

Thank you, I'll have to break it to him tonight. I just really hate that I'm having to inconvenience him and my loved ones even more than I already had to. >.<

Soooo my lips are also burning, and I don't have a BF or anyone kissing me! This just started 2 days ago, out of nowhere. Completely random, and rather uncomfortable.

Have you made sure none of your lip balms/gloss have gluten in them?

You may need B vitamins! I have had this issue for years, cracking/soreness on corners of lips- I will heal it and then it starts again in just a few days. My dentist even told me it was lack of B or C vitamins- this was before I knew I had celiac, after I found out and started supplementing with a B complex, the sore lips never returned. What I take is Country Life Coenzyme B complex. I don't take extra C, but need to begin now that it's sick season. I also use pure lanolin on my lips before bed, and it makes a huge huge difference.

Good luck!

    • I'm glad you have a diagnosis.  Fibromyalgia is recognized by western medicine, FDA has even approved several drugs for its treatment.  This article from the NIH is interesting, saying that not all doctors are familiar with it ( those are probably the ones who minimize it).   I hope your health improves now that you know what you have and can begin to do something for it. https://www.niams.nih.gov/health_info/fibromyalgia/#c
    • Hi Casy and welcome! I say welcome, you've been here before! Welcome back then You probably know already that you tick a lot of the celiac boxes (so answer to a) is no you're not crazy ). It's a bugger to diagnose however and you have to be eating gluten for the tests to work. So your previous test when the mess hall diet was eggs rice and chicken may not have been accurate.  I collected some faqs on the diagnosis process sometime ago. They're here along with a couple of links that may be of use in regard to the second question about the tests available:  There's also the board FAQ stickied above of course: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/  If I were you I'd be tempted to try cutting gluten. My advice would be not to do that at least just yet - if the test comes back positive they may want to run an endoscopy or other blood test. It's not pleasant to go back on it if its a problem for you, the 'gluten challenge' in other words.  One final point, I don't know what a positive diagnosis would do for your military career prospects. Maybe thats something you should think about or discuss with someone in confidence? The diagnosis can't do much for you practically, treatment is to not consume gluten. So you may be able to not pursue the diagnosis and just do your own test with avoiding gluten. Although I don't know how practical that is with MRE's etc... There may be others here who can help with that question.  Oh and theres a genetic element, so your son's GI issues may also be related... Best of luck! Matt  
    • Perhaps you were run down and your immune system was compromised? Here's a good paper on the subject: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579488/ Not much definitive, but this for instance is interesting: In my own case I know that under gluten I lived for years with an impaired immune system. Any cold going around I got it and kept it for longer than everyone else. I was often 'under the weather' and I had unexplained urinary infections etc. The skin issues were one part of that and the SD the most visible. So many things resolved when going gluten free that I was upset that the SD, whilst improving, didn't also disappear.  I saw a consultant dermatologist and he diagnosed it and said that Nizoral had the best chance of impacting on it - in fact its the active ingredient: ketoconazole that you need to look for: I only use the shampoo now if its bad and it isn't too bad at all, I think because I'm broadly healthy, eating well and strict on the diet. I have an itchy scalp and occasional spots at bottom of scalp but I can always go back to the shampoo if needed. Like you I have a couple of others sat around for an alternative.  My research has suggested its a case of treating symptoms and staying well, but its control rather than cure.  Sorry!  
    • Yours looks safe I was using paleo pro back then and the company changed from gluten free to manufactured in the same facility as.
    • Hello all! Does anyone take the Claritin non drowsy reditabs for indoor and outdoor allergies? Its the dissolvable ones. I was prescribed loratadine as prescription but pharmacist told me the pill form had gluten in its ingredients and that this Claritin reditabs were gluten free. I will call manufacture company as well just wanted to see if my fellow celiacs took this or what type of allergy medicine do you guys take? Any advice is helpful. Also for my post nasal drip I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray. I have yet to use this as it is the generic equivalent for Flonase. Anyone know if it is gluten free? The manufacturing company said they could not state if it was free of gluten because they do not test it but she did say nothing in the inactive ingredients looks like it contains gluten???? I really  need to you a nasal spray as I cannot breathe or swallow due to allergies in the air.
