Peripheral nerves: Chronic alcohol use will causes changes to different regions of the body. The liver is the more serious, but the peripheral nerves can be involved as well as the small blood vessels in the hands, feet, nose and ears. Peripheral neuropathy can cause tingling and pain in the hands and feet. This may improve off alcohol, but may need medication. Red flaring of hands, nose, ears is permanent.
