Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

are you asking about the ETG alcohol urine test? what can cause false positive for this?

you don't drink alcohol?

how old are you?

are you male or female?

when did you last drink alcohol?

Simply inhaling the vapors created by antibacterial hand sanitizers can be enough to elevate EtG levels and, in fact, this increase can be very high. Research has proven that such incidental exposure to alcohol can result in a false positive on an EtG test

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
