Can asian flush contribute to lupus?

I am currently having further test, but have been told I most likely have lupus.

I notice the rash I have (over a lot of my body) seems to be worse when I drink. (redder and itching)  I have asian flush I think (or alchohol allergy), so I get rashes or flushed a lot when I drink - especially heavy alcohol.

I am wondering if the asian flush could cause lupus?

I drink almost everyday (usually light beer) but can't eat when I drink.  (I have my main meal at lunch time)

I am 55 year old male.

I am wondering if I will have to give up alcohol?

Welcome to MedHelp

I am not familar w/ Asian Flush, but I have heard people say they thought they were allergic to alcohol.  I would encourage you to go to rehab and do whatever it takes to get free from that addiction.  You can see the results of it on your body, but it's doing so much more on the inside.  

What kind of lupus symptoms are you having and what test have been performed.

Praying for you.  Praying that you turn to God to help you.
