He feels fine in himself didn’t even know he had it till I saw it. No itching, no known allergies no other symptoms can anyone say what this might be or what we should do?

Picture doesn’t really do it justice his whole body is bright red

My husband had this happen three times. We eventually worked out he's allergic to ground ginger.

Heat rash?

catgirl1976 Sat 14-Dec-19 22:07:08

Red wine allergic reaction?

catgirl1976 Sat 14-Dec-19 22:07:36

He has been drinking wine but we often do and he’s never done this before

catgirl1976 Sat 14-Dec-19 22:07:49

White wine not red

Marleyisme Sat 14-Dec-19 22:07:55

My exh got that when he drank tonic water. Turned out he was allergic to quinine.

CustardySergeant Sat 14-Dec-19 22:08:19

Are the red areas hot?

Marleyisme Sat 14-Dec-19 22:08:24

Is it a new wine he hasnt had before

Likethebattle Sat 14-Dec-19 22:08:29

Happened to DH once. He went right red, I actually thought he’d been for a sunbed (unlikely)

TheClausSeason Sat 14-Dec-19 22:08:37

Scarlet fever? Is his tongue bright red?

Onebrokentoe Sat 14-Dec-19 22:09:06

Looks like urticaria.

dementedma Sat 14-Dec-19 22:09:12

I also suspect an allergy. Some multivitamins can cause did with me.

Tolleshunt Sat 14-Dec-19 22:09:35

Has he taken any medication? Looks like a medication allergy to me.

catgirl1976 Sat 14-Dec-19 22:10:03

No meds. Areas are hot

flopsytheflatcat Sat 14-Dec-19 22:10:08

Looks like urticaria (hives). I get EXACTLY like this with stress.

Was the wine one you haven't had before? Could be an allergy to a particular type.
