Allergic reaction: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is great for allergic reactions but when mixed with alcohol would be very sedating. The simply solution is to avoid alcohol for now and see an allergist who can determine what you are actually allergic to. They may be able to treat you for that allergy and you should have no more issues. Continued consumption of alcohol could lead to worsening reactions.

Alcohol Allergy: It sure sounds like you are allergic to alcohol and should consider not drinking.
