Re: why does alcohol make your cheeks red

Are you drinking wine? I think there is sulpar(sp?) in it that does it to me sometimes. Also, I have cold hives, which makes my skin red if it is cold outside or if I touch something cold, cold urticaria, look that up.

Re: why does alcohol make your cheeks red

sounds like you may have rosacea. It gets triggered by all sorts of things including alcohol, spices, sun, all depends how sensitive you are.
