Help, sudden allergy to alcohol? by zepp53 ..... Allergies & Intolerance Forum

In the last few months I've developed a reaction to alcohol where my face, mainly the skin around my eyes, gets really bright red and blotchy. It looks absolutely horrible. I know it is common for people get rosy cheeks when they drink, but this is much different and extremely noticeable.

Does anyone have any idea of what is causing this or what I can do to stop it? I don't know if it is an allergy or some sort of other reaction. I've tried using benadryl and cortizone on the affected area which doesn't help. I've tried drinking on a full stomach. Sometimes this helps, but not all the time.

This is really frustrating. I've been drinking for 8 years and this just started out of no where.
