am i allergic to alcohol?

every time i consume some sort of alcohol, sparkling wines and champagnes in particular, my nose gets really stuffy and my chest is slightly wheezing . i'm not a big drinker but would enjoy a glass of wine occasionally. i have asthma, hay fever and dust mite allergies, as well as allergic reactions to mussels. I'm in my 30s and used to be able to drink alcohol without a problem. The last couple of years all it takes is a few sips and i start to feel as if i have hayfever

This can easily be tested by an allergist in a controlled, safe environment

This way you would know for sure.
