Causes Of Body Itching After Alcohol Consumption?
Good evening, I want to ask, I previously consumed alcohol (red wine), 1 or 2 hours after that my body was in the hands and thighs arrived “red colored accompanied by itching” so severe. I wonder why? ! Is this the effect of consuming alkoho? Previously I have also experienced the same thing. And this is the second time that happened. Am I included in the alcohol interviewer? And what is the solution to get rid of these effects? thank you
Thank you for the question.
A reddish, itchy body after consuming alcohol is likely to indicate that you are allergic to the alcohol or other components in it. This allergy occurs when the immune system mistakenly assumes the entry of a substance, in this case alcohol, because it is considered harmful to the body, when in fact this is not always the case. Not only itching and redness, alcohol allergies can also make your body swell, swollen, or appear complaints in other organ systems, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness, coughing, dizziness, palpitations, shortness of breath, and so on.
Not only alcohol allergies, allergies to other substances, or other medical conditions, such as insect bites, skin infections, liver disorders, hormonal disorders, other organ system infections, cholinergic urticaria, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, physical or psychological stress, drug eruptions, kidney disorders, and so on can also cause complaints like you experience today.
To relieve your complaints, you need to see your doctor or dermatologist. Through in-depth interviews, allergy tests, or maybe other supporting tests, usually the right treatment can be determined and given to you so that you can return to your activities without obstacles. Initial advice from us:
No more consuming alcoholic drinks, whatever the alcohol content in them
Do not rub or scratch excessively itchy skin
Take a clean and diligent bath, then wear loose, soft clothing
Improve personal hygiene and the environment in which you work
Do not carelessly exchange clothes and personal belongings with others
Recognize if there are certain substances that trigger or aggravate your itch, avoid them
Expand relaxation, don't worry or stress too much
Sprinkle salicyl powder on itchy skin to improve itching
Hope this helps ...
