Technically, topical gluten does not cause reactions - according to the experts. However, those of us living with it know differently. I have to watch all skincare products for my kids and myself as we will break out in itchy hives (my kids have had showers at 2 am in morning cos they are reacting to something). I also don't wear makeup because of the reactions to the gluten in it.
I also know of someone with celiac who worked in a bakery and had to quit due to the reactions of the airborne gluten.
Personally, I think there is so many aspects to celiac/gluten intolerance that just isn't fully understood yet. Basically, if you are reacting to something then you need to remove yourself from whatever it is.
