Alcohol allergy itching

Common Questions and Answers about Alcohol allergy itching


Avatar n tn The other ingredients in the alcohol, such as yeast, sulfur dioxide, and additives are often the culprits. They can cause hives,itching and swelling. Secondly,alcohol consumption can cause changes in the liver. Advanced liver damage makes it difficult for your body to break down waste products (such as bilirubin) in your blood. Waste products in the bloodstream can also cause itching, nausea, fever, and body aches Thirdly,alcohol intake in excess can cause alcoholic myopathy.
Avatar n tn I asked for help on here a couple weeks ago for my alcohol intolerance/allergy. The first couple of times I ever drank I my forearms would swell up and break out in hives and itch very badly. I haven't gotten the hives in a while but my forearms still swell up and itch. Someone on here told me that I should take an antihistamine such a levocetrizine or cetrizine. I took 1 Zyrtec and I felt fine for a couple of hours but my arms eventually swelled up and started to itch again.
Avatar f tn Hello, Alcohol flushing is quite common. Alcohol flush reaction is a condition in which the body cannot break down ingested alcohol completely, due to problems in synthesis and genetic coding of the enzyme, acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH2)which is responsible for breaking down acetaldehyde, a product of the metabolism of alcohol. Also women are more affected by alcohol and can become sick after 2-3 drinks.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking the fluticonase but still have the itching 2 days later. My question is when should I expect the itching to stop? I've taken fluticonase in the past without issues. Sorry about the long post but I was wondering if my body could be more sensitive now because of the iv contrast issues and could all this be related. ? My Dr took CBC and liver blood labs but haven't gotten them yet. I haven't taken the desolaratadine yet because I'm not sure if i'll have a reaction to that now.

Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? While itching may be observed with patients having cirrhosis due to the bile salt products deposited in the skin, medicine allergy may also be possible. 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. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation and management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Now to preface, I traveled to Ireland- have drank Guinness for years. I'm 42 years old. Never had any issue with any alcohol or allergies (except to cat hair- but I would just have itchiness when around them). No food/ no medication allergies. Yesterday, after skipping lunch I had a fast food hamburger and coke (nothing new- had for years) for dinner on my way out for the night. I met my friend at an Irish Pub and had a fresh poured pint of Guinness.

Avatar n tn Behind my ears is severe and my chest itches but is not severe with rash breakout. The worst itching comes in my shoulders and thighs and behind my ears. It has not affected my face. The rash is a cluster of red bumps and most concentrations of them are about 3-5 inches in diameter. The rash itches all over very intensely when I drink alcohol. After half a beer it starts and it is unbearable. This rash is very unsightly and I feel like a freak.
Avatar n tn <p>Hi Zack! <br> I don't know if this can help you, but I Have the same problem and I found good information on Milk Allergy on a website named Act Against Allergy, at the address <a href="">www.actagainstallergy.
Avatar n tn (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.) Generalized itching can be due to allergy or urticaria. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection.
1493181 tn?1289115867 Just wanted to add that I don't drink alcohol, tea or coffee, I'm a vegetarian, and I have psoriasis, contact dermatitis and exczma.
Avatar f tn I have had bouts with itching, but lately has gotten really bad. I have been reading comments from everyone and find it amazing the number of people with this problem. I have tried everything, but today I am in hopes I received the answer. I went to see my DC who uses a Chinese medicine method and he said I have Solvent Toxicity. He asked what type of moisturizer I used. I asked do you mean on my face or my body. I have been using Vaseline Intensive Care Body Lotion.
645800 tn?1466864555 For over a year now I have been being driven crazy by my ear itching. Not the outside, earlobe, or anything like that, but the canal that leads to the ear drum or maybe even the ear drum itself. I have brought this up with both my previous PC and my current one. The previous PC just told me to put baby oil in the ear as it was probably dryness. Of course that didn't help at all.
Avatar n tn My doctor has prescribed Allegra, Patenol drops, and I have taken a variety of allergy medications but none have worked except to help with the itching a little. I then went to see an allergist who after looking at me for less than 2 minutes had me diagnosed with metal contact dermatitis. He wants me to have a patch test done now. My question is, that the one constant thing that I do when I go up to my business every weekend is that I drink beer.
Avatar n tn Hi, It appears that you have alcohol intolerance. Alcohol allergy can be diagnosed based on the type of reaction generated by consuming alcohol. Swelling and hives are indicators that the reaction is mediated by the immune system and is due to reaction against a particular component of the beverage that the body recognizes as an antigen.
Avatar n tn I've tried Apple cider vinegar, rubbing alcohol, itch creams and allergy pills, etc... Some provided temporary relief but the itching always returned. Then I found in my online research, the culprit. It was Scabies. Anyone can catch it, despite how clean you are. They are microscopic mites we can't see with the naked eye and live off human blood. They lay eggs in one main area (our arm, neck, etc, in an area that will stay warm).
Avatar n tn Hi, ive been having a problem for a few months now, i have been to 5 different obgyn's to find out why this is happening. I have severe vaginal itching, I have been tested for all STD's, and for a yeast infection. all negitive. then i changed all my undies and clothes to loose fitting and 100% cotton undies ( or none at all on) and i still cant stop itching, i stopped haveing sex, use cetafil to clease or just water at times.
Avatar n tn 30 a.m. itching all over. He went into the bathroom to get in the shower and in a few minutes I heard him calling me. He had gone ashen, could hardly breathe and was convulsing. The ambulance attendants almost lost him before getting him to the hospital E.R. (about 15 minutes from our house). He received Benadryl and another drug, was kept in intensive care overnight and then moved to a room for another 24 hours for observation.
Avatar f tn I don't get any red bumps, but I just feel like my skin in the neck and chest area have this tingling, burning and itching that just makes me want to rip my skin off because it's so annoying.
Avatar n tn You overcome an alcohol allergy in the same manner that you overcome any allergy. I had this particular allergy and it was cured using an alternative method. The process took 25 hours. I got rid of food allergies in the same manner.
Avatar m tn A few hours later my boyfriend complained of having a burning penile rash, which I assumed was from an allergy to the Metronidizale. He went to the hospital and got a cream for it. Now, several days later, he says its "better" but still complains of being raw. He also did bizarre stuff like apply alcohol to his penis. Have you heard of such an allergic reaction. What can we do now?
Avatar f tn Then as they start to heal the itching becomes worse so I will use pumice stone, sandpaper, etc and scrub the begesum's out of the area's, then I pour alcohol on them, which does help the area's eventually feel a bit better. I take prescribed allergy meds daily, but still the itching gets intense. Has anyone else experienced allergic reactions to their sh "tools" of the trade?
Avatar f tn About a year ago I developed what I called an allergy to alcohol. That is to say that after the first swallow of any alcoholic beverage (I have tried them all) I get this awful ache like feeling in my neck, chest, back, and arms. It starts about a minute or so after the first swallow and then is gone in about 10 min or so. It is unpleasant enough that I don't take another drink.
Avatar m tn I was admitted in the hospital for a month intervenes and oral cocktail of antibiotic was given which cured then.
363682 tn?1299492962 For around three or four years now, I have been suffering from headaches some two hours or more after the consumption of any amount of alcohol - although typically as few as two drinks upwards of any kind of alcohol. The headaches come on slowly but persistently and follow a line from the left side of my neck across the top of my head to just above the left eyebrow. They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours.
932657 tn?1244563817 Some plants can cause rashes, but usually with itching as well. Nettles is an obvious one. My dog once ran through nettles and had a similar rash. Also I have heard that Poison Ivy in dogs is not common, but can sometimes happen. And there are many other plants, both wild, and in gardens, which COULD cause rashes.
Avatar f tn 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. Generalized itching can be due to allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, synthetic fiber, food, cosmetics (powders, soaps, shampoos—see if anything was recently changed) or drugs. Food allergies like to gluten, lactose, sea food, and alcohol etc too should be looked into.
