Another differential is alcohol intolerance and its symptoms include headache, rapid heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, warm/red/itchy skin, abdominal pain and runny nose.

Dr Rockoff, most of my life I suffered with red itchy skin and scalp, red "dry skin", "weeping" redness behind my ears and hairline, itchy and watery eyes, and what seemed to be non-stop sinus infections. As my problems increased over the years, I became depressed and housebound. I avoided going outdoors, embarassed by the way my skin looked and made me behave.

My skin becomes very itchy and “burny” and I become generally just very tired. These symptoms persist for up to a day and a half. This allergy has absolutely taken over my life and I'm desperate to get some help and advice.
It could also be due to new soap, talcum powder, clothes etc. You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Fungal infections like tinea corporis and tinea cruris too cause whole body itching along with genital itching. Liver problems too can cause generalized itching. If the itch is only in the exposed part, it can also be due to sun allergy. Pubic and body lice can be another cause.
Applying a moisturizer and using only soaps that are gentle on the skin is helpful in this case. Hypothyroidism too causes dry skin. Please get your thyroid function checked. It could also be due to overuse of AC and heaters. If you have blisters at tip of fingers and dry skin then you need to rule out certain conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and malnutrition.
Hello, From the symptoms it is clear that the dry itchy skin that you have can be due to eczema or atopic dermatitis after coming in contact with an allergen. What is the allergen needs to be found out. It is usually not the alcohol that produces the allergic reaction to the wine or beer. The other ingredients in the alcohol, such as yeast, sulfur dioxide, and additives are often the culprits.
I can't tell at all if this is an allergic reaction to something I touched or something like dust mite is doing this to my skin all over my body. As far as I know, I'm only allergic to alcohol (itchy sking) and heavy dust (nose and eyes), and this started only yesterday after I took a nap on that old couch in the living room, which has almost never gave me problems except on 2 occasions (nose and eyes).
But then out of nowhere i felt an itch, i started to scratch it then damn it grew again but now they were on my arms. My skin started to form blood dots on my skin and rashes too.

My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Nicotine allergy may present with swelling of the mouth, lips, throat and tongue, itchy skin, skin swelling, mouth ulcers, inflammation of the lining of the mouth and difficulty breathing.

Alcohol can cause a variety of immediate adverse effects on the body, including headache, rapid heartbeat, nausea or vomiting, heartburn, abdominal pain, nasal congestion, or warm, red, itchy skin. Many people of Asian descent experience an unusual flushing reaction after drinking alcohol — even in very small amounts. This is caused by a genetic disorder in which the body is unable to break down alcohol completely.
Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Dry skin usually results from environmental factors that you can wholly or partially control. These include hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
Are you taking any supplements or medications? An allergy skin testing as well as evaluation of Vit B6 or B12 levels may help. A thyroid function test to assess hormones may also be helpful just to rule any underlying systemic cause of your symptoms.
For that pls consult an allergy specialist and get skin ***** tests and blood tests for allergy done. If the skin testing is negative, it is likely that you are intolerant to wine and beer. If the skin testing is positive, you should avoid food and drink that contain that specific ingredient. Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries.
I'm getting worried that it looks like non-itchy hives, since it seems to be everywhere, or some type of anaphylaxis. The skin is not raised, but it is red and hot.
I've had minor reactions to Tegaderm before, but my skin reacted in such a way that no doubt that this is an allergic reaction to Tegaderm that I suffered last night when the ER put in an IV port. I have an obvious burn from this material that is used to hold the IV port in place. I didn't know what it was called, so I called the ER department to ask them what it was called, so I could add it to my list of medication allergies.
This is due to a genetic disorder in which the body is unable to break down alcohol completely. An allergy to alcohol is unlikely. Allergy pertains to the immune system which produces antibodies when exposed to a specific trigger or allergy. It is commonly associated with hives, swelling of the mouth or difficulty breathing. Take care and regards.
Hives (urticaria) is a harmless type of rash or skin allergy that is usually caused by an allergy. The rash consists of circular, raised welts on the skin that are usually itchy and occur in batches. Hives can vary in size, from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter. Hives are red or skin colored welts that resemble mosquito bites, quickly change size, shape, & location. It itches and lasts for about 24 hours.

Hi everyone, i really don't know where to post this, but i have a really itchy skin condition and i can figure out what it is. i have a brownish rash on my chest and up around my neck, my inner elbows and armpits and up top of my shoulders. It moves around a bit from day to day but stays in the same general areas. sometimes it goes down to my stomach. When the itching kicks in it turns red. i noticed it leaves a white residue on the inside of my darker clothes.
It could also be due to new soap, talcum powder, clothes etc. She must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Fungal infections like tinea corporis and tinea cruris too cause whole body itching along with genital itching. Liver problems too can cause generalized itching. Menopause is another reason for this. Low estrogens are supposed to be the cause. Try a diet rich in estrogens. Hormone replacement therapy can also help a few.
Hi all: This Friday will be my 5th week on meds. I just developed dry, itchy skin on face around mouth, under nose and chin. Has anyone else developed this. Is this part of the sx or am I developing an allergy? It is so irritating. I bought benadryl gel and put it on on the way home from work. It relieved it after a few minutes. I just washed my face and put on some more before bed. It burns a little when I put it on. I'm going to take a capful of liquid benadryl now and see if it goes away.
Only on the palms of my hands at the creases on the skin, elbows, a few around the heels and ball of my feet, and scrotum. (So they are only on extremities). I haven't eaten anything odd lately, or used any unusual products or new things, so I don't think its an allergy to something unusual. The bumps are very faint, very under the skin, but itch real bad. What could this be in such unusual places, and what can I do about it? Thanks!
I feel that it is important to find out the ingredient in beer to which you might be allergic.For that pls consult an allergy specialist and get skin ***** tests and blood tests for allergy done. If the skin testing is negative, it is likely that you are intolerant to wine and beer. If the skin testing is positive, you should avoid food and drink that contain that specific ingredient. I hope that helps.
You don't know if there was something added to one of your drinks or if it is alcohol poisoning. Please get it checked out. If it is an allergy benadryl would likely help but best to have it looked at by a doctor.
I have had this itchy arm problem for years. It is awful. Over 5 doctors have tried to treat it without success. The best thing I have found is to stay out of the sun, keep my arms clean and moisturized and when it drives me crazy at night (with that intense itching) I take Zyrtec and use refrigerated Sarna lotion and ice packs. This is usually enough relief to let me go back to sleep. One doctor said this condition is called "Hudgenson's Summer Perego". An allergy to UVB rays.
I scratch until it hurts, it keeps me up during the night. So I started with rubbing alcohol, then witch hazel, neither of these helped. So I started using benadryl itch releif, this does cools the skin down so that I can sleep. I was wondering if theres something wrong with me, because this didn't start happening until about a couple of weeks ago, before then I never had this problem.
Or perhaps you have come in contact with a poison or have a bacterial or fungal infection. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
