Alcohol allergies?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what's going on with me. When ever I consume alcohol, a few days after, I get extremely painful itchiness. It feels like really big ants are biting me all over. However, if you look at the itchy spots, it looks like normal skin. This usually lasts a week after I drink. Is this a common thing, or could it be an allergic reaction to something other then alcohol. The beverage I drank was brandy, and I had 11 shots of it.

Re: Alcohol allergies?

I've had a similar situation with alcohol. I can't tell you what the cause is but I have found ways that help me deal. When i've experienced the itching i've been drinking and also in a smokey environment. If I intend to drink I drink lots of water before I start, during the night between drinks and also before I go to bed after a long night of drinking. When you wake be sure to start drinking water and take a shower. Immediatly put lotion on so that your skin can get moisture. Hopefully this will help. Good luck.
