Alcohol allergy sinus

Common Questions and Answers about Alcohol allergy sinus


Avatar m tn This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications. Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate..
Avatar n tn I believe the same thing happens to me , in terms of the headache. I feel like the day after I have any alcohol I develop a "sinus" like headache around my left eye. It has taken many months of piecing it together. Idid hear that alcohol could cause the sinuses to swell, thus resulting in pressure. Also, perhaps it is the yeast in beer that bothers you. There is a lot of discussion on yeast in our diets that can contribute to symptoms.
Avatar n tn Assuming that you drink beer on a regular basis (the brand of beer that you had that night), we can probably eliminate the beer as a direct cause. However, the beer ingredients, including but not limited to alcohol, might have combined with the medication and hastened the absorption of the Theraflu so that you got a sudden burst (resulting in a high level) of one or more of the Theraflu ingredients into your blood stream.
Avatar n tn 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 This will help you and your doctor take appropriate steps to reduce or limit your allergy symptoms. Drinking alcohol also causes nasal and sinus membranes to swell. If you are prone to sinusitis, it may be uncomfortable for you to swim in pools treated with chlorine, since it irritates the lining of the nose and sinuses. Divers often get sinus congestion and infection when water is forced into the sinuses from the nasal passages.
Avatar n tn 1) Can allergies or sinus cause the daily head pressure and tinnitus? No pain, just a heavy and tight feeling from my eyebrows, temples to the back of my head. Wake up with it. Only goes away when outside exercising. Constant dust inside and outside this place with pollution. Extreme heat going from AC into 120 degree. Has cooled off now, but symptoms remain.
Avatar n tn If it persists seek a holistic allergy elimination therapist. Efficient and non-invasive. Should it not be an allergy, see your ENT.
Avatar n tn i've had an allergy to alcohol,or as i describe it intolerance,for some years,dont get me wrong,i went out every weekend as a teenager,worse for wear on several occastions,but now i cant touch a drop,as when i do,i feel sick(as i am drinking it,not the morning after!
Avatar n tn The combination of the xanax, alcohol, high blood pressure, and diabetes is a very tricky one. When you also factor in an allergy med, who knows what this drug interaction can result in. He's playing a scary game of Russian roulette and you're being forced to watch. Will he respond to intelligent information if you presented it to him from his physician? What about the pharmacist who fills his prescriptions? Perhaps you can try this route first and see if any of this impacts him. Good luck.
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.
Avatar f tn I highly doubt that cutting back on carbs caused an intolerance to alcohol. A person can suddenly develop an intolerance/allergy overnight. Here's an interesting read on alcohol intolerance.
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 m tn Clear mucous is allergy drainage. Green mucous would be a sinus infection, and yellow is usually considered a cold although acid reflux can cause yellowish mucous as well. I would recommend that you start with a saline sinus rinse. The NeilMed bottle runs about $12 at most pharmacies in the US. There is also a generic bottle available now, but I haven't compared its fuction to the NeilMed.
Avatar m tn I've had several anaphylactic episodes (flushing, pressure in head, rapid heart rate, near syncope) in the last year and I've had persistent symptoms ever since the third attack in February of this year. These symptoms usually manifest as achiness/pressure around my sinus areas and dizziness and I occasionally experience pain in the back of my head/upper neck as well. I also experience numbness/tingling of the affected areas of my face from time to time.
Avatar n tn So I feel that you need to get an evaluation from an ENT surgeon and get a course of antibiotics and sinus drainage.You may also require sinus surgery. The golden rule for chronic stuffy nose is steam inhalation. Inhaling steam from a bowl of hot (but not boiling water) may help to soften, and loosen, the build up of mucus in your nose. You may also find that adding some menthol crystals, or eucalyptus oil, to the water, helps to ease your symptoms of catarrh. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn she avoidds and is fine. We were told it is most likely a severe intolerance and not a true allergy in my dd's case.
Avatar n tn Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
Avatar n tn I was evaluated with a 2+ (out of 10) allergy to dental acrylic. I have constant sinus infections from this allergy. I wish I could change these dental filling, but I do not have the money. The dentist I went to was informed of my petroleum product allergy, but he put in acrylic fillings in me. Acrylic is made from petroleum. My diagnosis to petroleum product was four years ago with a dermatologist (with patch testing). The patch test showed, I was highly allergic to nickel.
Avatar n tn Hello, Your symptoms of dry tight throat, uneasiness and difficulty in breathing and headaches are pointing towards the diagnosis of allergy to onion/ garlic, in any form. Garlic-sensitive patients showed positive tests to diallyldisulfide, allylpropyldisulfide, allylmercaptan and allicin, all present in garlic. Even if garlic is present in a very small amount,it can lead to an allergic reaction.
Avatar n tn I use a Neilmed sinus rinse almost daily. I run an air purifier, have encased my bed and pillows in allergy barriers, and keep a very clean apartment with only wood floors. I even recently moved to a new apartment. I was tested for allergies, and tested positive for nothing. I don't eat meat (over 15 years), have very little dairy and am generally more heathy than 99% of the population. I'm 31, thin/fit and work out. I live in New York City, and just hope I'm not allergic to the city!
Avatar m tn If your sinus problems are not going away after doing a saline flush, I’d recommend taking pseudoephedrine or Singulair, just to determine that your sinus problems are or are not caused by an allergy. In the end, when you have cleared your sinuses, you should be able to walk a block with your mouth shut. If not, go see a doctor, again. 16.
Avatar m tn cluster headache sufferers often find they can't drink any alcohol. But, it's different for everyone and any type of alcohol can be a headache trigger for any type of headache sufferer. But.. yes, two hours after you drink... that sounds very much like what happens to headache suffers in general, including myself, who find some types of alcohol to be a trigger. Alcohol is a very common cluster headache trigger.
503607 tn?1275675179 Can anyone recommend an allergy med that works well and would not interfere with arryhthmias or pvc's? Claritin seems to not effect my heart but does nothing for my allergies, Zyrtec seemed to have caused svt's Any suggestions?
548980 tn?1214826012 Ive been a mess for about 5 yrs now. I suffer from constant sinus congestion, unsteadiness, dizziness, and anxiety. I recently had an allergy panel done, and it came back that I am allergic to cats and dustmites, but how come everytime I go outside within minutes to an hr I get stuffy? Are they missing something? I have constant unsteadiness (feel like I need to lean on something or im going to fall over) and I get occasional "vertigo" spells.
Avatar n tn Cold and sweaty palm -When i am uneasy i will suffer cold palm , and my palm will sweat a lot. Allergy to alcohol -I will get terrible hives for few days whole body with extreme itchiness once i drink alcohol stuff *Is all symptom of mine caused by individual reason or is it interrelated ? Could it cause by Candida or my deviated septum that leads to all my allergy? please help~~ i really suffer a lot.
Avatar n tn It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
299940 tn?1192322967 A cyst (you said in the left sinus; may be maxillary sinus) is not an unusual finding in sinus X-rays and may not be responsible for the headache.
Avatar f tn (All high glycemic foods, wheat, yeast, vinegars, any sugars except stevia, will turn into alcohol if the body is acidic) The alcohol produced has untold negative effects. The less oxygen in the body, the more alcohol is produced which can have devastating effects for people with liver disease. Brain fog & dizziness, chronic illnesses are other side effects. This is the vicious cycle. Taking oxygen, minerals or supplements alone doesn't help.
Avatar m tn Fatigue was setting in a lot and I had an incedent at work where I was hungover and I had brain fog all day and I drank a rockstar and went to the hospital because i thought my heart was going to explode lol. Turns out I was having a panic attack. Next all sorts of sinus and allergy problems started happening. I had allergy shots which didnt seem to help. Basic blood tests were done and no other illness was ruled in.
