I've only been able to drink 3 times in my life because I keep getting the same exact reactions every time I drink alcohol. A few hours after drinking, my skin gets so red, flushed, and swelled. My temperature increases as well and I get chills at night and I also end up shivering even when I'm covered in a thick blanket. The next day, right after drinking alcohol, my body itches. It itches so bad and it lasts up to 5 days, and it's a different kind of itch. I can actually differentiate the type of itchiness you get from a mosquito bite and from this one -- and this is WAY worse. I take antihistamine and I also put calamine on my body to reduce the itchiness. Will this ever go away?
