Last year I discovered that drinking lager gives me one very painful spot on my face that takes ages to go, regardless of how much I treat it. No more lager!
This year I've discovered that white or dark rum gives me very painful spots on my back. These look like spots, feel like spots and once again take ages to go, but there are no 'contents' in 99% of cases.
Can anybody shed any light as to what these things are? They're really sore and it almost seems like nerve inflammation.
If these occur just in relation to alcohol intake, these could either be due to an exaggerated effect of alcohol i.e. superficial vasodilation and hyperemia or an alcohol allergy. Another possibility is allergy to another ingredient in the drink. In either of the cases it is best suggest avoiding alcohol.
Hope this is helpful.
