Common Questions and Answers about Alcohol allergy symptoms hives


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?
779797 tn?1263621835 It's called intoxication, not allergy. None of your symptoms point to an alcohol allergy. I suggest you stay away from it. Why make matters worse? Have you seen a doctor for any of these symptoms? Something as simple as an inner ear problem can also cause dizziness. Allergies can pop up out of nowhere. Did you test positive for anything?
Avatar n tn There have been a few occasions where, in addition to the hives, I have experienced symptoms like wheezing or sneezing after having consumed a large amount of alcohol the night before, but it is the hives that occur the most consistently and cause me the most trouble. I have experimented with sticking to different kinds of beers or liquors to see if it was isolated to a specific type of alcohol, but I have had the same results regardless.
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 saw a question posted from Nicole on April 14 that as yet had no answer, and I, too, am curious about the symptoms of an allergy to alcohol. I do not have the "Asian Flush" reaction, rather I can drink as little as half a glass of wine or a couple vodka/crans and spend all night throwing up, having diarrhea, and a massive headache that will not go away no matter what pain reliever I try.
Avatar f tn I have recently discovered that I have anaphylactic symptoms whenever I consume alcohol. Swollen lips, ears, hives all over my body, itchy mouth, quickened heart rate. Upset to my stomach. Any type of alcohol gives me this reaction. I used to be able to take Zyrtec before I drank and be ok, but now this does not work. My allergist cannot find the source. I tested negative for rye, wheat, and brewers yeast blood tests.
Avatar n tn Please note, that you are not describing an allergy, as this would involved hives, itchiness and even trouble breathing.
Avatar f tn i started expericing hives last feb 2011. i went into a drug/alcohol treatment center.i went into detox for 7days i was fine.then moved over to the scalp became really itchy. i always had dry scalp so i thought mayb that was it.but it became really bad and then my neck would have hives on it. i didnt have my 1st real breakout until i came home.thats when the hives appeared my scalp.palms of hands.feet.
Avatar n tn atarax treats anxiety, nausea and hives. You can't just treat the symptoms ....with hives you really need to try to get to the root of it. Also, almost forgot to mention this...atarax is still a commonly perscribed drug and very reliable but it's also very very it's not a bad idea to cut the higher dose in half....for some reason I think it only comes in 25mg get a pill cutter and take half. Believe me it will still work.
Avatar n tn I had no idea this was so common! I have all the common symptoms such as hives / welts on my legs, butt, arms, stomach, back, neck, shoulders, face, feet, hands (even my palms and bottoms of my feet) and scalp. I get severe chest pains, severe swelling of my feet and face (lips, eyes, throat, tongue etc.) and soreness in the joints. I find it particularly suspicious that these things come at night and, for me, are worst first thing in the morning when I wake up and get out of bed.
1412308 tn?1281712223 Hello, From the symptoms the possibilities of an allergic reaction and hives need to be ruled out. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Since you are having headaches also I would like to rule out any viral infection like sinusitis which can present with hives.
Avatar m tn To prevent unwanted reactions, people taking isoniazid should avoid alcohol-containing products. Daily alcohol intake also increases the risk of isoniazid-related hepatitis and with your underlying liver issue (fatty liver / elevated ALT), you should be extra cautious about mixing alcohol and isoniazid. You are probably on isoniazid for a short time (9 months), so if you could abstain from alcohol during that time, it would probably be beneficial for you.
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 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 Then, in my mid-20's I developed either alcohol intolerance or an alcohol allergy. I didn't have restricted breathing but I did have a runny nose and a very noticeable increased heart rate. I'd get this after just one drink, and it didn't matter if it was beer, wine, or liquor. I haven't been tested for allergies but if I take a Claritin a few minutes before I drink, it prevents these symptoms. Don't take Benadryl and then drink because that can cause real problems (read the Benadryl label).
768841 tn?1234931421 Hello, Your symptoms are suggestive of hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications.
Avatar n tn Hi, Asian flush can be differentiated from alcohol intolerance or allergy based on the absence of hives and other generalized symptoms. Pepcid AC will not be of much help in reducing or countering the allergic reactions caused by alcohol. This is because famotidine works at the H2 receptor and allergic reactions are mediated via the H1 receptor. Though both are histamine receptors, their mechanism of activation and agonists are different, to a large extent.
Avatar f tn High dose will not help much since the allergy source is not removed. After prednisole, skin hives could rebound.
Avatar n tn Hello, Mold allergy can cause hives,ithching,rashes and respiratory symptoms and sometimes dizziness;but it can’t cause excessive sleepiness without any of these symptoms associated.
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 m tn Last year, I had several bouts of diarrhea in the middle of the night that were occasionally accompanied by a breakout of hives. At the time I attributed the problem to my overindulgence of ultra-spicy food catching up with me. So I gave up all spicy food, cold turkey. The bouts were infrequent last year, but have increased this year, probably about 5 in the last 3 or 4 months. I always wrote it off as something else, but now I am positive they are all related.
Avatar f tn Goodness I hope mine dont last that long they are the worst thing, I am not taking any Meds as I learned the Hard way and had many of the side effects but not Hives, I got these after Dental Work and cannot get any answers what could have triggered them ,I go into the search engine for answers the dentist said Abslutly not that it wasnt any of the things he uses in Dental procedures and gave me a course of Penicillin, and infererd I was nervous.
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 You could read more about the condition at the following link - It would help to take a vitamin B complex and also consult your doctor for your symptoms if they persist. Post us if you have any other doubts and let us know about how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar m tn I realize that it is very difficult to pinpoint the cause of hives. I'm just wondering, for someone who hasn't had problems with hives in the past like me, if I should be worried about something serious. And I'm also sick of being constantly drowsy on benadryl! Would a detox water fast help? I dunno.... any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Avatar f tn The strange thing is that I wasn't having very bad GERD symptoms until I had the iv contrast allergy. I should mention that I had a CT angiogram because of chest pain symptom and family history, the results show that my heart is fine. Otherwise I thought I was a healthy 37yr old. The allergist prescribed 40mg of Nexium (which I've never taken) until I could see the gastro doctor.
363682 tn?1299492962 from the yeast dying, which is described by flu-like symptoms and most notable a headache. Not sure how the alcohol comes into play, although alcohol does further lower blood sugar. When I drink more sugary drinks I don't get much of the headache. Have you been on lots of antibiotics? Those folks are at higher risk for more yeast issues.
Avatar f tn Yes, aspartame can cause allergy!! and hives! (rash) I would cut it out of your diet for a good 2 weeks and see what happens - it's worth a shot! My husband swears that diet coke causes him to itch!!!
176741 tn?1295237589 In time that went away, but over the course of years I've developed a skin condition similar to hives. They appear nearly anywhere, but rarely on my face or scalp. Have any of you ever experienced anything like this? Do you think it is associated with my thyroid? Over the years I've changed laundry detergents, soaps, etc...I use every hypoallergenic product I can find. Any ideas?
