Can You Be Allergic to Alcohol?

Do you think you may be allergic to alcohol?

Research shows that many people may actually be mistaking their allergic reactions to alcohol as a hangover, because symptoms are similar.

Nausea, breathing problems and hives are symptoms of an allergic reaction to alcohol.

Some experts say an alcohol intolerance may be more a likely occurrence than an allergy because an allergy involves the immune system while the intolerance involves digestive problems.

Scientists say some alcohol allergies may not be as a result of the alcohol itself but one of the many ingredients contained in the drink, such as gluten, barley, grapes, histamines, hops, sulphates or other substances.

A true alcohol allergy can be dangerous because it can lead to anaphylactic shock so it’s important to get a professional opinion.
