Imagine holidays and special occasions without wines? Kind boring! Yes, we usually serve wines during holiday seasons and special occasions but it’s a sad thing if you have allergy with the wines and other beverages.
Wines allergy symptoms are very mild that you couldn’t think it’s already an allergy with the wine. Actually, it is mistaken to be a seasonal allergy. Having flushing face, nasal congestion, diarrhea, vomiting, shortness of breath, swelling of lips, mouth and or throat are maybe the signs that you have wine allergy.
Wine allergies are due to the sulfites, histamine, or other compounds of wine. Red wine is the wine that contains the most of it because red wine usually originated in the skin of the grapes. Here are some signs that you are allergic with wine:
- You’re women
- study shows that women are twice likely to have a wine allergy than men.
- Having trouble breathing
- shortness of breath and coughing can be caused by the sulfites that are present in the wine.
- Having headache
- wines contains histamine and the histamine itself can cause allergic reactions and headaches.
- Freaking out skin
- flushing and having rashes are due to the reaction of the alcohol, the sulfites, or the histamine.
