Question
Hello Dr, after drinking 4 or 5 beers, I always start a sneezing fit of 6 to 12 sneezes. After that, no problem. Don't know if this happens to people with allergies or not, but it is quite regular. Just wondering. Thank you.

Answer
it could be allergic to some of the beer components.... they are made from different grains..... could be irritation from the carbonation.   I would (at least as an experiment) try taking a claritan a couple hours before the beer to see if it suppresses it.......
