Welcome to justanswer!
Certain drugs can cause the sudden or gradual appearance of a red, burning face. Any drug that releases histamine, vasoactive peptide (substance P), or prostaglandin can cause facial flushing when taken while using alcohol.
Examples of these types of drugs are Ethanol, disulfiram, chlorpropamide, calcium carbamide (urea), phentolamine, metronidazole and cephalosporin antibiotics.

This can be treated by avoiding the agents responsible for the symptoms.

IF the symptoms persist, or you have other symptoms like diarrhea, wheezing, hives and difficulty breathing then you need to consult a physician.
