Please provide at least the output of "iptables -nvL", only -L isn't
enough. Or you may send the output of "iptables-save ...".

Although no interfaces are shown, I can't see any rule, that could allow
lo. Seems to me that you are missing rules like these:
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -o lo -j ACCEPT
Have a nice time,
