4mon. Old baby when he is drinking his milk redness coming out on his chest and face and disappeared when finish his bottle! His doctor dosent knowwhat

Keep asking: There are a lot of questions here. Is the baby taking more than 20 minutes to finish? Is there sweating while he is drinking? Does the milk contact his skin while drinking? More data is needed to help answer your question. I'm sorry.

Burning and sharp pains in kidneys and redness in face gets worse when drinking alcohol feel tired and run down a lot any suggestions thanks?

Burning and sharp pains in kidneys and redness in face gets worse when drinking alcohol feel tired and run down a lot any suggestions thanks?

See your doc!: Sounds like you may be drinking a bit too much. But it may also be an allergic reaction, or some problem with your kidneys. Alcohol can give you a great high, but the downward plunge afterwards can be devastating! You can experiment by avoiding alcohol for a couple of weeks and see if the symptoms fade. If not, please check with a medical doctor.

After drinking red wine my face got puffy next day?

Sulfite allergy: Wine does contain sulfites, and you could have developed an allergy to them. This is most likely true if you already have a known sulfa allergy. Or, you could have passed out and/or fell asleep with your head tilted lower than your feet and more blood drained to your face overnight.....

Why is my face red after drinking heavily?

Enzyme lack.: There's an enzyme which is necessary for the breakdown of alcohol that you drink, and if you're deficient in that enzyme a metabolite builds up which leads to intense facial redness. This deficiency is prevalent in the Asian population.

Why does my face turn red and my side hurt when I drink?

Why does my face turn red and my side hurt when I drink?

Alcohol metabolism: Some people, especially asians, have lower concentrations of the liver enzyme which detoxifies and breaks down ethanol when they drink, known as alcohol dehydrogenase. As a result, they may experience facial flushing after drinking, which others might not. I am not sure why you have discomfort in your side, but if it is over the lower right side of the rib cage, it may pertain to the liver.

Rosacea: Rosacea is a chronic and potentially life-disruptive disorder primarily of the facial skin, often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. Many have observed that it typically begins any time after age 30 as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go. In some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. Alcohol can cause a flare.

After drinking I get a red face and neck. Very hot and painful. Why is this?

If you mean alcohol,: That is a vasodilator, i.e., it widens the blood vessels on the surface of the skin. Thus, your skin gets red and you get warm from the additional blood flow. See your doc to make sure you don't have an allergy. Peace and good health.

Why does my face start to turn red when drinking? Its been happening only recently

Acetaldehyde: Some people are not able to metabolize the alcohol, so there is a build up of aldehyde which causes vasodilation and flushing. There is also an association with hypertension and squamous cell esophageal cancer.

Every time I drink alot, I get red areas of skin around my face and chest, why, am I allergic?

Every time I drink alot, I get red areas of skin around my face and chest, why, am I allergic?

Alcohol flush: You are not allergic. See dr. Nguyen's answer for the nitty gritty details. It is not a serious problem, and it is common among people of Asian descent. Sometimes it can be decreased by taking a h2 receptor blocking medication like Zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid 30-60 minutes before consumption of alcohol. Those medicines are available over the counter. Best wishes!

I get a very red face/neck. Only noticed it happening when I drink. Now, it happens more often, i.E. Feeling nervous/anxious or embarrassed. Why?

I get a very red face/neck. Only noticed it happening when I drink. Now, it happens more often, i.E. Feeling nervous/anxious or embarrassed. Why?

Triggers: Like alcohol, can cause "hyper" responsiveness in blood vessels that dilate them. Over time, damage to the muscles within those vessels may rarely cause a pemanent flushing condition. Rosacea is one such condition. It can be "triggered" by a variety of agents. A visit to a dermatologist to set your mind at ease, or to suggest options for treatment, is a good idea.

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.

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.

My face turns red after I drink alcohol? Is that normal?

My face turns red after I drink alcohol? Is that normal?

It can be in many: People, particularly those of Asian or Native American descent. Alcohol is metabolized into acetaldehyde, which can cause severe flushing, redness, sweating, lightheadedness, dizziness and even fainting with very low blood pressure. Acetaldehyde is metabolized into water and carbonic acid by another enzyme, but if this not present genetically those individuals will flush with alcohol.
