Have food allergy : panel done to see what you might be allergic to that you tend to eat when drinking. Many alcoholic beverages can contain histamine like additives that can cause unusual skin and GI issues or congestion. Also sulfite allergy or nut allergy can be present from eating snacks with beverages that you might be sensitive to. So look at the snack foods you eat with drinking too.
