Could it be that she's kissing you right after eating gluten? That could do it.

I think this may have been been the case last week when she had a packet of quavers think i spelt that wrong, anyway crisp that had gluten in them. So what about the make up? Ive basically made her check everything she wears and told her to change it if it has gluten. Do we not think it on my face would cause a reaction? Thx for your replys

Any makeup you might ingest. Lipstick might be a concern. You would get it on your mouth. Mascara shouldn't make a difference unless you chew on her eyelashes. :o

Well, I expect "reactions" from him, but they do not involve gluten. ;)

The minuscule amount of wheat that may possibly (read as : remotely) be in a fleck of mascara or eye makeup would not concern me or my hubs at all.

Lipstick is the biggest concern for gluten CC in makeup.

And the people who live with WEs and swap spit regularly say BRUSH YOUR TEETH before smooching.

I am sure this is what is happening.

I (briefly) dated a guy in high school who had an anaphalactic allergy to dairy. Literally, if we kissed soon after I ate dairy he was in BIG trouble.

It sounds to me like you are very careful on your own, but if you are THAT sensitive you must be coming in contact with it somewhere.

Anything put on our skin hits our bloodstream in 30 seconds.

It sounds like it is time for a real heart to heart with her to explain the seriousness of your condition and teach her how to be more cautious for your protection.

This is not true. If this were true everything we touched would go into our bodies. There are a very few things that are small enough to go through skin. An example is a nicotine patch which is specially made to be small enought to go through. But not the whole patch, just some cells on the patch.

Not sure where you read that information, but I do not think that is quite true, hon.

If this were the case, we'd be soaking up any number of high levels of chemicals, etc.when taking showers, swimming in pools, splashing paint or gasoline on ourselves accidentally or swimming in the ocean.

And I could probably rub a loaf of Wonderbread on my legs and nothing would happen to me as I do not have a wheat allergy in addition to celiac and it would not somehow get into my blood..

I hear she has her hub's rub his legs with Wonderbread... kinky! :D

Gotta agree with the things not soaking into skin. Some things may do that, but for the most part we don't have a big problem there with everyday items.

Deals88, is it possible you are reacting to a perfume? Some people are sensitive to odors. like perfumes.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
