I'm directing this to Maria Lorraine because I know she has done a lot of searching on the subject of reaction to wine, but anyone's help would be appreciated.
I've recently been asked if I am aware of any specific link between wine reaction in the form of hives or rash and menopause. This question came from a woman who says she and several friends have been having that reaction since the onset of menopause. I have not been aware of any specifics on this, but I found the question interesting enough to see if anyone here knows anything about it.
I do remember the link between ashtmatic conditions and similar reaction, but not to anything else that speciifc. It isn't difficult, however, to conclude that hormonal changes could affect sensitivity to alcohol or other things.
