    Whenever I have a bit of alcohol or anything with a tiny tiny bit of alcohol in it, my face goes red and sometimes feels like it's heating. Why is it doing this and does this happen to anyone else?

    alcohol dilates the blood vessels - causing more blood to flow which is why your face can appear flushed when drinking.

    if you do find it a real problem, may be worth seeing your doctor or cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink is always good.

    My body temperature shoots up when I've been drinking. Maybe this applies to you?

    Tis all about the vasodilation.

    Well I never ever ever ever drink - only on rare occasions i.e. a house party, birthday or something.

    Consider yourself lucky, it's far worse if you're like me and go red when you're uncomfortable. It's probably the most vulnerable feeling ever.
