What non-food items can trigger wheat allergy?

ANSWER

Wreaths and garlands may include wheat or wheat products as decorations. Some children's play dough also has wheat in it. Other non-food items shampoos and conditioners, lotions, and cosmetics may, too. You’re not going to eat them, obviously, but ask your doctor if you need to avoid touching them.
