: About 70% of the times that I consume alcohol I experience an intense heat on my face as well as tightness of skin and a blotchiness. What's strange is the inconsistency. Am I allergic to alcohol? The other day I drank three sips of beer and my face became so hot that my eyes literally burned as if close to a fire. I'm afraid of a severe allergic reaction. I'm not a frequent user and wonder if I need just to completely abstain. I don't see how I can drink the same brand of beer or wine and sometimes have this experience and other times not.
Hi Deanna, You could have a yeast problem.All alcohol is produced by a fermentation process. This makes alcohol an aggravating substance and you can't be diagnosed for candidiasis except by the symptomes. If you have had antibiotics recently-- you may have developed a yeast infection. Good Luck---Harry
