Symptom #2: Nasal Congestion

It was long thought that nasal congestion was a result of a build-up of nasal mucus (snot) in the nose. We now know, however, that while excess snot can be a cause, congestion is usually down to inflammation. With the delicate internal tissues of the nostrils irritated, they can become inflamed and swollen, blocking the passageway.

An allergic reaction to wheat can cause this swelling, causing nasal congestion. There can also be more nasal mucus than usual due to the irritation, and as part of the body’s attempt to remove allergens from the body. Antihistamines may be able to help reduce this inflammation and relieve the congestion.
