Re: Allergic to beer?

If I drink a beer or two I wake up the next morning with my sinuses clogged and shut, and it stays that way for a couple of days.

I have found no solution for my problem. I've stopped drinking beer.

I hope you have better luck.

No cats or other furry animals in your houshold? You're very lucky if beer is your only allergy! Any other food allergies? My wife gets a red face after only one beer. Do any other alcoholic drinks affect you like this? Have you tried other brands of beer?

Yep. All kinds of beers kill my sinuses. I can drink a couple of glasses of a white zinfandel wine without much of a problem, but if I drink too much of it, my sinuses go nuts.

I have many food allergies. In fact, I am allergic or sensitive to almost everything that moves or doesn't move. Beer is the absolute worst for my sinuses. I avoid as many allergens or pollutants that I can. Since I got rid of my sinus infections and had acupuncture treatments, my sinuses have been golden.

I own a dog. He is not allowed to lie on my side of the bed. I have to wash my hands after I pet him.

How about you? Do you enjoy a nice cold beer, or a pitcher, or two, of draft occasionally?

I thought you might have other allergies. I love beer, and thank goodness I am not allergic to any foods. Bananas make my throat itch, and if I eat too many strawberries, I start to weeze. Cats are my downfall. I have to wash my hands immediately after petting them, or my throat itches and my eyes swell shut. I have seasonal allergies to grasses and pollen. Here in Montana from May to July, I take Clearinex, a prescription allergy medication. It helps me stand cats too. Dogs and other animals are no problem...
