Avatar n tn I do not feel drunk at all during this experience, which occurs from as littleLittle noses decongestant Little tummys as 1/2 a bottle of alcohol. I am a male from india, Have i developed a violent allergy to alcohol? Am i now intolerant of this substanceDrug abuse? Is there any way for treatment of such an allergy/intolerance? Could it be something else?
Avatar m tn I have the same exact reaction to alcohol so I know how you feel. I have been told by several friends that I should just take benadry before drinking but I haven't done that. It sounds pretty boring lol but I just don't drink anymore. If not drinking isn't something that you want to do I would call your Dr. and maybe ask for an appointment because I would guess it could be a reaction because of an underlying health condition.
Avatar n tn I to have a strange reaction to alcohol. After just one beer I get very bright red on my face and the rest of my body. I also get uncomfortably hot and have a little difficulty breathing. I can also feel my heart beating very fast. I know these reactions sound serious, but i can drink a fair amount. There have been times where I have consumed 5-6 beers in a couple of hours. I am half caucasion and half japanese, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weigh 230 pounds. Please tell me whats going on.

Avatar f tn i do mean occasional like once every 3-4 months, and don't drink any more than 1 glass of wine. whenever i drink alcohol i get red flushes all over my body within 1-2 minutes, and my face gets a bit swollen(especially the lips) with my eyes going red. i also get dizzy and very very warm, and i can hear my heart fluttering (literally beating very fast and slow and then very fast and then slow).
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis or rosacea. Rosacea is a medical condition presenting with redness, swelling, discoloration and sometimes pimples and dry skin over the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Avoid the sun and hot weather, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot beverages. Also try to reduce stress as it may precipitate attacks. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.
Avatar n tn (I'm susceptible to severe headaches even w/o any sort of alcohol.) Is this an allergy or is my body just intolerant to alcohol consumption? (I guess it doesn't really matter which it is, I need to stay away from the nasty stuff altogether I'm thinking...but I am curious.
Avatar n tn I have always gotten red in the face and had a red neck. I do have high blood pressure and do take medicine. I am a smoker and do drink some alcohol. I take procardia, metorprol and lisinipril for the blood pressure. With these meds it is regulated. I did have some tests done earlier in the year. One was a speical Cardio CT Angiogram and showed some narrowing of one artery, but not blocked. I have to watch my diet and stop smoking. Recently my face has gotten red more frequently.
Avatar f tn I had a few sips of a bud light lime-a-Rita and broke out in a red splotches all over my face, neck, and chest. My face felt very hot which is what prompted me to examine it while sipping the drink. I thought that I could tolerate bailey's Irish cream, which is whiskey, but after safely drinking it one night I tried it again and found that is gave me no buzz at all, but did make me very nauseous. The only thing that has not yet affected me very much was a margarita that my sister made for me.
Avatar n tn I have fibromyalgia and that causes a low tolerance of any kind of alcohol. I especially had trouble with beer and red wine. I would be sick right away and for many days after; vomiting and headache was the worse part. Save your money Don't drink alcohol. I used to have a great time watching everyone else act like a fool and I could remember everything the next day too. I had the important job of driving everyone home after partying. I'd rather keep people safe than be puking for many days!
Avatar n tn I would get rosey cheeks from time to time, and in a handful of occasions this would result in my face going red all over. This has got a lot more common. Most times I have a drink (even a sip of wine or beer) I start to feel myself going red. Sometimes it goes away but sometimes it just gets worse and worse. Recently this has started to happen when I am not drinking. The skin on my cheeks begins to feel tight and I get flushed.

Avatar m tn I drank Holsten 3-4 years ago nothing happened but this time I got red face like red pepper, red eyes, rashes on forehead, below front of neck, knees and red palms with little nervousness but no itches. This is disturbing me and sounds like I would have to sacrifice my enjoyment of drinking beer Friday every week. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Avatar n tn after i drink any kind of alcohol my face turns red, it looks like i have sun burn. if i continue to drink more my neck and chest get splochy red. it doesn't matter what kind of alcohol i drink, it even happens after i have just 2 drinks. why does this happen?
Avatar m tn Recently, I have had one or two drinks followed by a 5/10 minutes of difficulty breathing, wheezy feeling of short noneffective breath, then my face feels warm, and soon enough splotches of warm, red skin covering my face, neck, and splotchy across my chest, back, arms (top portion of arms only, meaning from shoulders down to wrists but seemingly only on the top of the arm), and on my knees. It is also accompanied by a rapid pulse of 120 or 130.
Avatar n tn My 21 year old had very red and swallen face after drinking a lot. I'm sure it was over 5-6 drinks. This happens to him once or twice a year when he drinks too much. Anyone has an idea of what it is?
Avatar n tn This was followed by a numb or swollen sensation in my tongue, and my face felt weird, particularly around my jaw (not on my neck). The wierdness could be best described as a numb sensation, the same feeling you get when a dentist injects your jaw a freezing mechanism. My eyes also started to water and I mucous came from my nose. Perhaps a slight sore throat, did not feel feverish. After a few hours, the breathing became normalized and feeling came back to my face, and tongue.
Avatar n tn 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. I am single and I am never going to find a woman with this ailment. This started 2 months ago and has gotten progressively worse. QUESTIONS: What is causing this?
Avatar n tn One common differential for a red face is rosacea? Have they discussed this with you? Face redness may be due to flushing of the face. Facial flushing is due to dilation of blood vessels in the face.The redness is caused by the increased blood "rush" to the area. Facial flushing may be due to intake of alcohol, certain medications, allergic reactions, exposure to direct heat, acne and rosacea.Do any of these apply to you? Do you have any pimples or acne?
Avatar n tn Thank you for the comment about the alcohol/red wine but I don't drink. Never have...but food allergy is interesting? I don't know that I have been doing anything different for the past year or so...when I first saw the blotches. I'll look for pics of broken capillaries but they look like small rasberries...if that makes any sense. I think I did look up lupus at one time but I am going to look again. I think I am going write down everything I eat/take and see if it could be an allergy.
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 Wow, this happened to me yesterday. I drank just 1 root beer flavored beer. the pain was in the middle of my chest and spread to shoulders. Briefly had a strange sensation in my jaw. I told my son to keep an eye on me, it hurt so bad. The pain lasted a good 15 minutes. I was nearly convinced I was having a heart attack. I'm 46, and I had these same pains years earlier drinking very sweet wine coolers. It might have been seagrams brand because it didn't happen with all wine coolers.
Avatar f tn i used and exfoliant on my face and later on my face was broke out and had blisters on it . Now im dealing with red patches of dry skin on cheeks , chin .
Avatar f tn   my problem is that whenever i try to have alcohol my heartbeats increase rapidly,my face becomes red and i start vomiting within half an hour of consumption kindly help me out.  regards.
Avatar n tn By the time I leave Sunday my face it flaming red, swollen, and itchy. On Monday it starts to calm down but the skin is very dark, almost purple in color, and by Tuesday it is almost completely cleared up. I do at times have a reaction when I am not up north but it is never as severe. 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.
Avatar n tn I just feel at these spot .. like when you are out in the winter and your face turn red bc of the cold and the bloods flows to reheat you. These sympthoms take about 1.5 hours to disapear even if I continue drinking alcohol. My last experience with this was at my last Xmas party when everyone in my group was worry about me bc I was red like a tomato. I reassured them that it's "nothing" and even tho it is abviously a allergic reaction, it is nothing.
