I work in a residential treatment facility...one of our residents fell and was taken to the emergency room...the doctor there said he smelled like beer...he was not drinking...he takes alot of medication for mental illness and for physical illness...he acted like he had been drinking...he has hep c...he also likes hard candy...can he smell like alcohol?
Hello, Alcohol odor is possible only when the person consumes alcohol. Maybe the doctor got it wrong because of some obsession. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr. K. V. Anand, Psychologist
