Try michelob - supposedly made with rice hops. Is there a pattern to your wine hives - grape variety, region of origin, etc. Or be the designated driver. You may not be the life of the party but you will help save lives. ...Read more

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits.
