Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes correct.
Alcohol like whiskey is no good for gout.
It worsens gout attack.
Please stop whiskey and you will see improvement soon.
Also avoid red meat, seafood.
That will help also to keep uric acid down.
You can try Ibuprofen which is stronger than paracetamol for pain control.
