Hepatitis C and alcohol are the two main causes for liver cirrhosis.
Benadryl,in large doses,cause liver damage and since you already are a patient of cirrhosis,you should not consume either alcohol or Benadryl.Better be away from these,otherwise it may progress towards end stage liver disease very fast.
Best of luck
