Everytime I drank alcohol I didn’t have any rash or allergies. Recently, I have it after drinking. Is it possible that I just allergic to alcohol. Why did it just happen now and not before?

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
Allergy to alcohol can be a possibility. It can be a result of some drug interactions due to a medicine you might have taken recently.
Alcohol is known to cause a disulfiram like reaction. You should be aware of that.
If you still have any symptoms, you must visit clinical emergency.
Any further questions are always welcome

Take care
Thanks and regards
