Anyone have Celiac Disease and a wheat allergy?
Does anyone have cd and a wheat allergy? I have cd (newly diagnosed) but about 13 years ago (when my issues first started)I tested negative for a wheat allergy. Could I now be allergic since it’s been so long?
The reason I ask is the the only time I break out a rash, (it looks and seems like hives because they fade away after a few hours and antihistamine help to very slim extent), is at work. I work at Cracker Barrel and there is flour all over from making the homemade biscuits, cornbread, dumping, and everything else. By the end of my shift I am covered in all sorts of food and flour. I break out in a rash every time I work, it’s the ONLY time I get it. They usually start after an hour or so into my shift.
I don’t think it’s my cd because I’m not ingesting it? I do not eat anything at work or even bring food to eat there. I drink water out of my own bottles from home. I try to wash my hands as often as possible but I guess I could still be cross contaminating myself?
