See below.: You cannot be allergic to alcohol - that is impossible. You can only be allergic to things that have proteins. Alcohol chemically has no proteins. You may be sensitive to alcohol. For example, it may give you heart burn. If that is the case, Pepcid (famotidine) may help but i would not advise that. Rather, i'd advise not using alcohol at all or limiting the amount and frequency so it doesn't affect you longer.
