Is this an alcohol allergy and can I outgrow this?

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?

Count Your Blessings !!  You're one of the lucky few !!  Your body is sending You a message.  Our bodies know that alcohol is detrimental to our good health.  Most people don't get this 'message' (or listen to the message(s) until they have become addicted - and many don't 'listen' then!!  Many continue to drink until They have developed life threatening issues - and many still don't listen then !!  Long term, over use of alcohol will kill You - before that it will destroy relationships and cost You jobs, career, etc.  This I know is true !!  To answer Your original question :  There is no way to 'outgrow' the affects alcohol has on the human body - You can 'deny' the affects to YourSelf but the 'affects' are taking place whether You know it or not.  Again I say : Count Your Blessings !!
