Allergy: It is your body telling you it doesn't like it. Don't drink! It is hurting you.

Alcohol induced: It could be brought on by the alcohol or the alcohol interacting with something else that you either have, or have ingested. Possibly keep some type of journal that you can write down when you get a headache from alcohol- note type of alcohol, what you are eating or have eaten, activities that day (dehydration,) meds, supplements, etc.
