Thread: Flushing a couple days after alcohol consumption

    Default Flushing a couple days after alcohol consumption

    Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with rosacea (at least I think it is). I never had full redness on my face where it looks like im blushing, more so just patches and my nose has patches of redness on it. It recently started a month or so ago, and its the worst thing in the world. It started to get better, so I decided to test it out and had 5 beers. I looked fine, until a couple days later my nose got all patchy red again. If it is a trigger does it happen immediately?

    Sometimes triggers cause immediate reaction (alcohol is usually one of them) but triggers can also show up later on as well.

    When I flush I tend to look worse for a couple of days until my skin recovers. Although I dont drink at all when I see my frineds after their night out their skin usually looks **** for at least a couple of days. I bet you are either still dehyrated or are just still recovering from the all that sugar overload/histamine reaction.

    I would try taking an antihistamine for a few days, like Clarityn and drinking loads of water.

    Tell me more about these patches- do they itch, flake,etc.

    My skin is always in pretty bad shape the day after a night out. It doesn't feel like I'm flushing, but the skin is just more red.

    Default My patches

    They never itched nor burned or anything like that, which led me to believe it wasn't rosacea. But it has to be something since I have redness on my face, for I never blushed easily, actually I dont remember blushing at all in my life. My face is a lot greasier too now, so is it safe to use clerasil blackhead pads for rosacea? They have 2 percent sacicylic acid or whatever in it. I also have been taking fexnofenadine, an allegra type medicine, and nasarel every day. So what the heck do I have?

    After a night of drinking then next day my skin is really red & inflamed!

    Even when out drinking I flush quite bad!
