Wondering why face feels flushed and itchy when drink red wine?

Wondering why face feels flushed and itchy when drink red wine?

Blood vessels dilate: Does this happen with all alcohol or just red wine? Many individuals will have histamine release due to alcohol exposure which results in the flushing. If symptoms are directly related to red wine, the culprit may be the tannins or the sulfates in the wine. Try wine low in tannins or organic sulfate free wine. ...Read more

Why I get itchy hives after drinking certain alcoholic beverages i.E. Beer, some red wine etc but ok with others?  

Why I get itchy hives after drinking certain alcoholic beverages i.E. Beer, some red wine etc but ok with others?  

Tough question: Because wine & beer don't share common ingredients other than alcohol & you tolerate other alcoholic beverages. You might have 2 allergies - hops & something else in wine. 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.

Skin infection: When there are red and raised areas on the palms and soles it could be a fungal infection that started with the feet that spread to the hands from touching the feet. Warts can be asymptotic and can be on both the palms or the soles. Hyperhidrosis or really sweaty palms and soles can be another cause. At 14, alot of changes going on, hormonal effects can play a roll as well. Take him to see his dr. ...Read more

I have lots of tiny red bites only on my feet, they are very itchy and have been there for 4 days now. I have a cat but its not fleas. What is it?

The question is: Are they bites or are they not. If they are bites then the answer to your question is they a bites. If not then some form of dermatitis which is difficult to analyze without seeing them. I would recommend you try an over the counter cortisone cream and you can apply that with an antibiotic cream 2-3 times day. If no improvement then visit a dermatologist or podiatrist. ...Read more
