Hello there! When I was little I used to have iron deficiency, cuts behind my ears, really bad headaches, bloody nose, eczema all over my legs, and scratch my knees and elbows till bleeding. Finally after 20 years of this, they told me I was Gluten allergic. I have been on the diet for 1 year now and its been great, I don't itch anymore and my knees and elbows are back to normal, my eczema on my legs is gone, no more headaches and such.

Here is the problem though... I thought I could drink rum (bacardi) and coke so that's what ive been doing when I've gone out. Lately though, everytime I drink rum and coke I wake up in the morning with my hands and my lips swallowing, and my skin just feels really weird.. idk I can "feel" something is not right. Any suggestions??? No more rum and coke?
