    Could it be the lotion?

    Eucerin lotion has gluten in it. She needs to use products that are gluten free. You have to think how many times a day a kid will touch their lips or pick something up to eat. If that body product has gluten in it, she will end up ingesting it somehow. Same thing applies with lipgloss/lip balm. Also something to think about since the school year is starting up. -make sure she has her own gluten-free soap to wash her hands before lunch. -cleaning supplies for her desk. -gluten free snacks to keep on hand so she's not left out during treat time. -make sure her art supplies are gluten free (paints, glues, etc) -I always ask for a list of ingredients they will use in projects and provide my children with gluten-free versions. -Airborn gluten is an issue too, mine can't be in class if they have gluten flying around in the air. -

    Could it be the lotion?

    My kids and I use Everyone Lotion. It's Certified Gluten Free. I've been able to find it at my local Wal Mart and have ordered it from the site below. I second what Ennis said about calling/emailing the manufacturers. Also, Gabriel Cosmetics and ZuZu Luxe have certified products. My daughter and myself use their line of makeup. https://www.eoproducts.com/everyone/everyone-body/everyone-lotion.html https://gabrielcosmeticsinc.com/
  3. Both sets are made on shared lines. That was the point of my response. Many people have gotten sick from Gluten free products from Frito Lay.
  4. I understand the link. I’ve gotten sick from Frito products that are labeled gluten free. I called and spoke with them on their processes, they “clean” the lines. I won’t buy products that are ran on shared lines/“cleaned”. It’s not worth it.
  5. The issue with Frito is they use the same lines with gluten containing products. Even though they clean them there is still a chance in cross contamination.

    Gluten Free, but is it Really?!?!

    I had edited my comment earlier to show that I was talking about regular Rice Krispies. My eyes skipped over the "BROWN" in the post.

Ingredients: Rice, sugar, salt, corn and barley malt extract, Vitamins and minerals: iron, niacinamide, thiamine hydrochloride, cholecalciferol (vitamin d3), pyridoxine hydrochloride, d-calcium pantothenate, folic acid. http://www.kelloggs.ca/en_CA/rice-krispies-cereal-product.html

    Celiac Prevention

    My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes. I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease. I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in life. My kids are thriving, they have normal lives, they are smart and have gained knowledge about food that they can carry with them throughout their life. They really don't let anything stop them from living a normal life. I think you'll have the upper hand if you choose to have kids. You'll have the knowledge of what to do to keep them safe if they do have Celiac Disease. You'll be able to relate since you were young when you were diagnosed. How was it for you growing up?
  11. My 7 year old son has this happen. I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry. It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves.... The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell. Sleep helps, along with lots of water the following day. The next day we talk about everything and try to figure out what could have glutened him. We've had talks with our school and teachers letting them know that our son is to not eat anything unless we bring it. I think the last time this happened to him was from using shared supplies after a treat party. Now he's very cautious of putting his hands to his lips or mouth. Now as far as chips, my kids stick with Kettle Brand Chips. They are certified. Potatoes aren't my friend so I can't really say if they taste great.

    Gluten Free Coffee

    Awesome! I've given up coffee since my husband contaminated our Keurig. I'm going to have to go out and buy my own old school coffee pot so I can try these out. I'm super excited.

    Gluten Free, but is it Really?!?!

    Companies get so sneaky with labeling. I stick with the companies that are dedicated gluten free if I am buying processed foods. Most will have a website with a section under Frequent Q&A's. If they don't, email or call to get clarification as to how the item is processed. I know that my family can't eat anything that has been made on a shared line and then cleaned. Good Luck....

    Has anyone found anything that works?

    I get it on the back of my right leg and right elbow. I have no idea why it's just limited to the right side of my body. My family care doctor prescribed me a steroid and steroid cream. The oral steroid has only made me grouchy and fat! I'm probably going to stop taking it since it hasn't helped the rash much. Good luck getting rid of yours!
