Does alcohol irritate the skin?
Whenever I drink alcohol, even a tiny sip, my face becomes flushed and a region of my skin becomes feverish to the touch. This same region happens to have an eczema problem. I do not believe it is an allergy to hops, grapes, etc. since it occurs whether I sip beer, wine, or whiskey.
I have yet to find a reasonable explanation for this occurrence. Does this happen to anyone else? Is this a normal reaction? And, for the record, I’m of legal age.
