Why does my face turn red when I drink alcohol?

Why does my face turn red when I drink alcohol?

Vasodilatation: Alcohol acts as a vasodilator, a drug which causes small blood vessels (capillaries) to dilate. Some of this comes from an intermediate by-product of alcohol metabolism called acetaldehyde, which is usually rapidly metabolized further, but in some people it can accumulate, causing more flushing than in other people. This happens particularly in people of asian background and native americans. ...Read more

I got a tick bite on my penis and im to scared to tell anyone but when I took it off it started to turn red and itch and swell just want to know if im ok there's no bulls eye and I don't have the tick

I got a tick bite on my penis and im to scared to tell anyone but when I took it off it started to turn red and itch and swell just want to know if im ok there's no bulls eye and I don't have the tick

I: I agree with the other doctor who wrote to you. It's important to talk with someone about this, because ticks are known to carry a number of infections, such as lyme disease, babesia, and other bacterias. Generally they are slow growing infections and the symptoms can sneak up on you, or come and go over time. It would be a good idea to discuss this with your parents or a doctor. They might decide to give you a few weeks of antibiotic treatment to prevent a chronic infection.

Take care
