Can't say: Those treatments generally do general help self-limited rashes and itching. Afraid your description doesn't give enough detail to diagnose and make a prediction. There is itching of pregnancy that I've seen last a month after baby's out.

Possible infection: Swollen glands are almost always a sign of infection. Fatigue, appetite loss, and headache are all non-specific symptoms that can also be related to infection. This should be evaluated by a physician.

Possibly: Persons may develop allergic antibodies to the componets of wine (grape) or beer (barley, rye, hops) or even to the brewer's yeast. Some are also sensitive to the perservatives used such as sulfites. Un-sulfited wine is available in most wine shops. If consumption of any food or beverage repeatly results in an allergic symptom, then you are by definition allergic, regardless of the mechanism.

I got a rash from nose-chin after halloween. I had 3 antibiotics, nothing happened. Could it be an allergy to chocolate/gluten/milk/lecithin....?

Unlikely: It would be unusual to have a persistent rash for two months after eating halloween candy. Skin inflammation from continued exposure to a skin irritant or allergen like cosmetics would be more likely although i don't know what your rash looks like. An allergist or dermatologist can patch test you to common causes of rash (contact dermatitis).

Rash: A recurring rash would be good reason to consult a dermatologist to determine the cause and set you on a course of treatment. You should be seen when the rash is prominent and not treated with cortisone, so the doctor can diagnosis it more readily.
