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.
