Good luck. ...Read more

Eventually...: One of the many detrimental physical manifestations of long-term heavy alcohol use is dilation of the capillaries in the skin. This is what causes that "red-faced" look and "caput medusae" on the chest. Rosacea will cause redness and thickening of the skin of the cheeks and the nose. Heavy alcohol consumption will aggravate this condition, leading to "rhinophyma", a large red nose. ...Read more

No idea: There is nothing that I can find in the literature that suggests any benefit, or any harm from using papaya enzyme after drinking wine. There is, in fact, a papaya-based wine available in some places. Perhaps someone thinks that the enzymes will better digest the alcohol in the wine, or settle the stomach, but I can find no information on this from usual medical sources. ...Read more

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) + Wine: Both Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and alcohol (in wine) are central nervous system depressants. Mixing the two will cause additive CNS depression.

Yes, in some people: Drinking red wine causes headaches in some people, but white wine doesn't cause a problem. The cause for "red wine headache" is uncertain, but is likely due to a chemical in red wine. Also, drinking beer, wine, or liquor causes flushing (red skin) and some headache, in people who get too much aldehyde (from alcohol metabolism) when drinking alcohol. The aldehyde problem is a genetic condition. ...Read more
