Customer Question

Recently, from time to time after I drink I develop mild asthma like symptoms. I used to have asthma as a child but it went away when I was 10 (I am now 31). Could this mean I have developed an allergy to alcohol? What are the next steps, should I get an allergy test done?

I can understand your concern.

Alcohol can act as a triggering factor in your asthma.

So you should get a blood allergy test along with skin prick test that can determine whether you may be allergic to something in alcoholic beverages.

It's good to avoid alcoholic drinks for a while.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.

Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.

Hi Dr.So I had one beer yesterday and I've had mild asthma for more than 24 hours, is this normal? Could it be possible that the asthma I had as a child has just come back?

In case you had asthma symptoms only after drinking beer then it can be possible that alcohol intake has triggered it.

This is not normal.

It could be possible to get asthma again after coming contact with allergen.

Hope this helps.
