Alcohol reactions are common in AERD

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and Scripps Clinic in San Diego determined that allergic reactions to alcohol are very common in AERD. Approximately ¾ of patients with AERD have nasal allergy symptoms when drinking alcohol. These reactions can occur with any alcohol, usually happen with small amounts of alcohol and in many patients can occur within even a few minutes. A large number of patients with AERD also have asthma symptoms when they drink alcohol. This is much more likely to occur in AERD than in typical asthma or in individuals who have no asthma or sinus problems.

    I have AERD.
    I have reactions to alcohol thanks for your research I didn’t know about this.
    I also have had PC. The urologists prescribed viaga which I believe gave me my first serious reactions. You should look into this
    We with the disease need to know products with NSAIDs in them. I have terrible reactions to ibuprofen also.
