Gluten Is Not The Only Problem? Heres Some Other Alcohol Related
Allergies.

Alcohol giving you strife? well there is a number of reasons you could be feeling allergic to alcohol.




Personally, I spent years trying to pin point exactly what my allergies were, and the worst thing is when theres not just one major cause, it could be a whole hoard from things, from gluten, to sulphides, to sweeteners and thickeners, to corn syrup, even the very products you clean the dishes with, wash your skin with, make up you use, laundry detergent, and mixers in you drinks.

 What Alcohol Or Additive is Causing Your Allergies?

Wine allergies could be anything from a head ache, to rash or itchy skin, to puffiness, nausea, sneezing, to a tight chest. Its not always obvious that this is causing your discomfort. And allergies may not kick in with certain types of wine. Eg. I can drink red wine, but find sweet white wines make me feel hungover after 1 glass, ill, and itchy.

Our Home Remedy... Simple, Tried And Tested

Of the best ways to reduce irritation from drinking wine, is the drink plenty of water between glasses of wine, wine is a diuretic which essentially means that accelerates a lot of fluid from your body and you may become dehydrated, this can then result in a hangover will start. I also find that taking an antihistamine (hay fever tablet can help with allergies).

Sulpher Dioxide (preservative 220) is allergenic and one of the things people suffer from when it comes to wine, there is a higher concentration in sweet white wines, so stick to organic wines, reds and sparkling, for less sulpher dioxide.

Tannins can cause the infamous red wine head ache, due to peoples poor histamine production, to it can pay to take aspirin and help suppress effects if you must drink it.

Allergies to Beer

Sometimes the yeast, or gluten in beer can effect people, with a range of symptoms from upset tummy's and excessive bloating, to swollen glands, and cold like symptoms. It pays to test different beers, you may find the varying content of yeast/gluten and other additives in some beers more pleasant then other.

Alcohol Mixers

Sugar mixers can be full of hidden nasties that can upset and dry out the skin, when it comes to mixing drinks, I am  adamant that the purist is the best, so stick with plain juices and tonic water. Adding freshly squeezed lemon or lime can make a great difference.

Trial and error

The best thing to do it see what works, note down in the dairy what you drink, and the reactions you have while drinking, the next day (this is how i realized my allergy to white wine, my hangovers always seemed excessive even after 1 or 2 glasses).

Note: My recommendations are based on my own personal experience of wine and that of my friends I have no medical training and I suggest if your symptoms are severe to consult a doctor. My advice should not replace that of a medical professional.
