Alcohol allergy lips

Common Questions and Answers about Alcohol allergy lips


Avatar m tn Avoid wine and alcohol products if you know that they trigger an asthma/ allergy attack. There are already a number of wines without the preservatives that causes the allergy. But have yourself tested first with what you are allergic to.

1780140 tn?1314596605 I have been looking all over the internet for home based remedies for Eczematous Cheilitis or is what I think it is. I have really bad chapped lips and sometimes i can't open my mouth because it is so dry there is also a redness around the lips which is also dry and flaky and sometime itchy. By putting water on it lets me open my mouth fully but the starts to dry up again i don't use lip balm becase it give me a horrible burning sensation. Please please help me what should I do!!
Avatar f tn What is important is you must find out what is causing this allergy. You will have to undergo food allergy testing to find this out. The only sure shot cure is avoidance of foods and synthetic preparations made from the things you are allergic to. A previous history of eczema goes more in favor of allergy. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Since about last year, after almost everything I eat, I feel nauseated. Then recently i had a drink of alcohol, and immediately my mouth (lips and tongue) were swollen, along with difficulty breathing. Since then I stopped drinking alcohol, and it didn't happen for awhile until I went to the dentist for a filling. Immediately after she injected me, my lips and tongue started swelling up, and I again had trouble breathing. I also couldn't swallow.
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 n tn I just read a submission, and your response, to a 10/24/99 question about alcohol allergy. It was the second time I have seen a reference to Asian intolerance to alcohol... I am not Asian, but am 1/2 Italian. My dad was adopted, but lineage tracing appears to reveal mostly Irish and some French heritage - no Asian. However, after the birth of my first child in 1991, I too have developed a severe reaction to alcohol. Sometimes just touching a drink to my lips causes it.
Avatar m tn Hi there. The weird sensation in your lips can be due to an allergy in response to chemicals in soap and detergents, or allergens. You can have swelling in lips, itchy mouth, etc. other causes can be peripheral neuropathy, secondary to diabetes, Reynaud’s phenomenon, due to excess cold exposure or due to underlying connective tissue and autoimmune disorders, panic attack and low levels of calcium, potassium etc. Multiple sclerosis, herpes and leprosy need to be ruled out.
Avatar m tn My lips get flaked after salty foods now as well. I'm not sure if I've just damaged my lips through too many spirits and fizzy drinks in a single night or if it is something else. Other than that, no other symptoms. From what I've read, it doesn't sound like herpes and is more likely an irritation/allergy, but I haven't had it before and I don't think it is chance it happened literally hours after an unprotected experience.
Avatar f tn 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 Hi there, I believe I have an allergy to Quinine. Last time I drank tonic water, my nose and lips swelled up and a rash formed on my back. At first, I though it was the Gin that may have done this, but I recently drank tonic water and whiskey (dont ask me why...) and these allergies occured once again. Once the swelling came down, my mouth became littered with cankersores which causes eating and drinking to be very painful.

Avatar n tn On both occasions she had had products containing sorbitol and red food dye #40. Has anyone experienced an allergy to these that caused swelling of the lips?
Avatar n tn After a long car ride with the sun in my face most of the day, I began to get a tingling sensation in my lips (I had not been drinking alcohol). That night, my lips and penis were swelled up significantly. After a day or two, water-blisters formed on my lips and penis (they were yellowish). They eventually broke, and turned into red sores on my penis. I also got canker sores in my mouth to the point it was difficult to eat, and cold sores on my lips.
Avatar f tn Regarding the allergic reaction to alcohol,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. Beer may contain a variety of ingredients, including barley, corn, wheat, and rye that may precipitate an allergic reaction. Since the allergens have not been identified in your case,so I would advise you to get allergy testing done.
Avatar n tn So Im hoping that not using chap stick for the next couple of weeks and jus using a lilttle alcohol to dat my lips with that this will go away. Thanks again cuz I was getting kinda worried.Oh and by the way I live in Sacramento too.
Avatar n tn Hi, You have mentioned that you frequently lick your lips. I believe this may be a major factor. Our saliva contains enzymes which are protein substances that may irritate the lining of the lips. The lips unlike the skin has a thinner outer layer and may easily be irritated. In your case, refrain from the habit of frequently licking the lips. A consult with a dermatologist may be able to help. A fungal infection may also be an underlying cause.
Avatar n tn Age - 19 Non-smoker History of eczema, but not on or around the face, and not seen for years I don't lick my lips, I use Chap Stick quite a lot because I do get chapped lips easily Iron deficiency runs in family, but is usually not a problem for me because I include lots of iron and Vit-C in my diet As far as I know, I'm perfectly healthy otherwise and haven't been ill in months.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I went to visit my physician regarding a problem I had with a ring of redness around my lips - more prominent on my bottom lip - it was a lighter, tender pink shade and kind of looked like I had been drinking lots of red kool-aid. I also had constant dry, cracked and bleeding lips, and tried everything from drinking plenty of water and making sure I wasn't licking them.
Avatar n tn I agree, latex allergy, probaly that spermicide. That stuff can really cause some problems with allergies. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I'm 30 and have experienced these symptoms throughout my 'drinking life' every time I consume the slightest amount of alcohol. I don't drink beer as I can't take the taste but prefer wine coolers or grain alcohol drinks. I drink rarely, about every other month or two, but when I do it doesn't take long for crippling shoulder pain, yawning, and fatigue to result.
Avatar f tn The next day when I woke up, they were SO swollen I could not see a thing. My lips wre also a bit swollen as well as my throat. I was totally disfigured and stayed this way for 3 days! HORROR!!... Have I suddenly become allergic to the PPD contained in most colorants? Has anybody suffered such a reaction? Do you know any alternatives to color hair safely, at least the time I go back gradually to my natural colour? I'm stuck and very worried of what would happen if I had another episode..
Avatar n tn Therefore my nickel allergy is also a petroleum product allergy. I was told the best cavity material is gold inlays (90% gold, 9% platinum), I will need to do a patch test to see if I am allergic or not. Also I was told the new glues (for the inlays) are made from acrylic, but a dentist told me the old school glues are not acrylic.
Avatar n tn But I have this horrible bitter taste on my lips that just won't go away. Like when you use nail polish remover and then stick your finger in your mouth by accident... only I don't wear nail polish and haven't used any polish remover. No household cleaners either... It's just a really horrible bitter taste on my lips. Any clues???
Avatar n tn Hi, I was wonder if someone could advise me on my son, He's 16months old now and apart from being a handful is usually well except his lips (nowhere else) turn blue from time to time and I'm getting concerned as it is happening more frequently now! it does happen when he is cold but I've also noticed it at other times.I also have a 5 year old but his lips never turn blue ? When he was 8 weeks he was admitted to hospital with bronchiolitis and at the doctor who examined him found a murmur?
Avatar m tn Both alcohol and sea food can cause food poisoning and food intolerance. Allergy to alcohol can vary depending on the nature of alcohol and on the batch, age and label of the same type of alcohol or wine. The allergy to alcohol or to coke even can be due to preservatives, coloring agents, yeast used for brewing, sulfites, gluten products in the alcohol or even to grapes and other bases. It can develop at any time during a person’s life.
Avatar f tn I took over the counter allergy medicine, drank water, and put honey on my lips. At its worst I felt a little swelling inside my mouth because I let days go by before seeking treatments. Unfortunately I find my self with the burning, scaly lips again. I have stayed away from mango too!
