So pleased I found your comment. I strongly suspect gluten intolerance for the weeping behind my ears. I have eaten gluten free for 30 years. On rare occassions I eat a little gluten food at social functions to indulge in the food I love and test how the gluten affects me. This time I didn't get the usual symptoms, but I did get weeping behind the ears. It happened on the previous occassion too, but never before that. I will now avoid the gluten and hope that it clears up in a week or too. I'm sad that the gluten affects me this way, but pleased that I have probably found the solution. Gluten can affect us in so many different ways.View Thread
