Not sure what you: Are experiencing. Jaundice? Dermatitis from using hand sanitizer? Dry skin? Hives? If you can provide a little more detail about what the rash looks like and why you link it to alcohol, that would really be helpful information. In the absence of that information the best suggestion I can offer is to see your primary MD or consider an urgent care visit so someone can examine you. Best wishes! ...Read more

Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes. ...Read more

There are no specific interactions between beverage alcohol and steroids used on the skin. ...Read more
