Welcome to HCM.

Burning sensation of body is common after consuming alcohol. But if it is severe, the possibility of allergy to alcohol or Alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme deficiency ( It is an enzyme that metabolizes the alcohol in the body).
Do not worry. Often people dont understand the agony you are going through unless they experience the pain.

Coming to the treatment part in both the cases, abstinence of alcohol is the treatment of choice.

Please see a doctor and get tested for alcohol dehydrogenase deficiency.

Wish you a good health
