hep C and alcohol hives?

I've had HepC for around 30 years. I also drink as I am an alcoholic. I don't drink everyday, but I'll drink a whole bottle of wine in one night on the weekend. I also know I'm making my condition so much worse.

I've developed a new condition...now after a couple of glasses of wine, I break out in itchy raised red "hives" on my stomach. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

Re: hep C and alcohol hives?

It could be an alcohol allergy that's newly developed, but it's probably due to the HCV, especially considered how long you've had it. Hives can happen as a result of hepatitis infection, though not very commonly, so perhaps the alcohol is exacerbating whatever non-allergy mechanism causes hives in the first place.
