Wine Allergies
Enigmaquo posted:
I drink red wine weekly and have never had any problems until I made a recent purchase of reds from Portugal and Austrailia. If I drink either of these two wines I will develop a rash on my leg and some times on my arm. When I drink various American or Italian brands I have no reaction. Is there a specific ingredient in some red wines? I know I should avoid these brands but is there anything I can use for a reaction if another brand causes the rash?

I believe some wines contain sulfites. This can cause an allergic reaction. I would check the label for ingredients and/or contact the manufacturer.
