Allergic to uncooked flour. Rashes on the lips, cough and nasal congestion. Allergic alcohol?

I have known for years that I am allergic to uncooked flour (like what they put under the dough before baking a pizza) if t touches my lips , I would get a rash . But if I used a knife and fork and was careful not to brush my lips, I was fine. Now, I am wondering if I am allergic to beer. Last night I drank two pale ales and coughed for hours. Tonight I only had half of one and can t quit coughing. Is this allergy? My sinus also feels congested and runny and my throat is a little itchy. I think the first two are normal with alcohol?

the best way to know if your allergic to something is a test called skin prick test.. it is a test in which common allergens are introduced on your skin..if you r allergic you will develop rash on tat area.. this test is done by immunologist or allergy specialist.. once you know you allergic to something you can avoid it..
a person be allergic to anything..if your symptoms repeatedly happen after drinking beer you may be allergic to beer..
beer is made from wheat and other cereals ..also flour used in dough is made from wheat or other cereals.. therefore you get your allergy test done for food items .. then you vl be guided by the allergy specialist.
