    People with sensitive skin can have an allergic reaction to the chemicals in the pool. I noticed when I swim in a pool with high chlorine levels, I break out horribly on the areas you know will be irritated before swimming with help prevent it.

    Curious,Rather than acting as an antihistamine, the consumption of alcohol can provide histamine and aids in the release of histamine. Alcohol prevents the breakdown of histamine. Moreover, histamine shares the same ALDH for its metabolism, hence an impaired ALDH enzyme will amplify the problem after the ingestion of alcohol which leads to excess histamine in the system. This leads to allergy-like symptoms including most notably nasal congestion and mild flushing of the skin within minutes of ingesting alcohol. Other side-effects include fluttering of the heart (palpitations, tachycardia), sensation of heat, headache, abdominal discomfort or a drop in blood pressure (hypotension) are related to high blood acetaldehyde levels. The commonest abnormal reaction to alcohol is seen in persons from an oriental background, who get flushing, increased heart rate, and symptoms of reduced blood pressure. This is sometimes referred to as oriental flushing syndrome. Approximately 50% of Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans are deficient in ALDH, and this has been reported to be protective against the development of alcoholism. I have no knowledge of alcohol being used for or acting as an antihistamine. I am therefore unable to discuss this at any greater length, other than to suggest that if there are any trials in progress or planned, maybe you should research for them and apply giving details of your reactions to alcohol and histamine release in your body.ALL ANSWERS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED, IN ANY FORUM AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS ONE. – MANY ANSWERS ARE FLAWED.
