    Red face from drinking, but only sometimes.

    Hi, This might be kind of long but I hope some of you read it and can help.

    So Ill get right into my story. When I first started drinking I never got a red face ever. I didn't start getting a red face until 2nd year of college. It started happening everytime I drank, the weird thing was it would start on half of my face, so I would have one cheek completely red and the other white. Eventually they would both go red though.

    After college I moved in with my brother and looked up that taking pepcid ac helps and it did I never got red if I took pepcid ac before. One day I decided to try drinking without the pepcid ac, and I never got red. Everytime after that I never got red from drinking either.

    Then a couple months past and I start getting a red face again this time it happen exclusively on only one cheek (either the right or left, it seemed to switch sides some nights), so I pick up some pepcid ac, but it doesn't work now.

    One day I happened to start drinking a little earlier than usual (1pm). Now this is the weird part. I never got a red face the entire day. But right when it started getting dark (around 7 or 8) My face started getting red.The next day I tried the same thing with the same results.

    My conclusion is that for some reason I only get a red face at around 7 or 8 now. Not sure how that works, its like my body knows the time or something. Also I find it weird that I only get red on one cheek on my face, its usually the left side, if I keep drinking both cheeks will get equally red eventually.

    Does anyone have any ideas or just thoughts on this? Mabe similar stories?
