I really need to stay away from the wine when feeling stressed. I make stupid posts and wake up with chipmunk cheeks.

Why does it give me puffy face and fingers? Dammit. Going to have to double do water today or something

Sounds like you need to avoid wine completely.
@TexChik think I'm going to. It's in my best interest
@Bexsy You might want to get tested for food allergies. That swelling is not a normal healthy thing.

OMG woman! You`ve pickled yourself. ;)
@Degbeme figures!
Read The Label: Are there SULFITES in your Wine 馃嵎?
[quote]YES! .... nearly all winemakers add sulfites , it's used as a needed preservative [/quote]

That's the reason (aside from partial dehydration) usually!

[quote]Most people can and do consume [u]truckloads[/u] of sulfites with absolutely no side effects whatsoever. However, the unfortunate few may experience hives, [b]swelling[/b], stomach pain, diarrhea, and even anaphylaxis (in rare cases) after consuming sulfites.[/quote]

Are you drinking more than [u]truckloads[/u]?

[quote]In theory, you can remove sulfites by adding hydrogen peroxide to your wine.[/quote].
[quote]for the typical wine at 80 mg/L sulfites, 1 milliliter (~ 1/4 teaspoon) of 3% hydrogen peroxide, the form sold in pharmacies, will remove the sulfites in one bottle of wine. [/quote]
It doesn't say if it affects the wine's taste at all, try it.

[u]Lots[/u] of water and an antihistamine will help.
One glass of water every two of wine. Maybe? Idk
@southerngent NOOOOOO don't say that word!! I thankfully never see those posts. Lol
@Bexsy pffft. Or grown.

I don鈥檛 see them either. I just like to have people imagine鈥.

It sounds like you might be allergic

@Bexsy I would try a different type or a different drink all together to see if it's the grapes f****** you up or if it's the alcohol
@Bexsy [quote]Guess I'll not try anymore[/quote]
No, it's a very common side effect, I Googled:
"sulfites in your wine side effects like swelling in the face". There's lots to peruse about the subject.
@KneAuxBody makes sense

Maybe try drinking a pile of water once you're done with the wine!
@Fullmetal good idea buddy

Do you have allergies to wine?
@WillaKissing that would be my luck 馃槱
WillaKissing56-60, T
@Bexsy It is part of my bad luck with dry wines I get a splitting headache off of just one sip is why I asked.

Sweet and cheap wines do not do that to me.
