Whenever i start drinking alcohol I get really red. I don't necessarily have to be drunk. Even after drinking a bottle of beer it happens. Is this an allergic reaction, if so, is there anything i can do to prevent it from happening?
Thanks so much in advance.
do you have any other symptoms, such as shortness of breath? i don't think it's too unusual to have a "flushed" face as a result of drinking. i know one drink of wine and i sometimes have quite a red nose and red cheeks - and you're right, it is embarrassing!
