Results: Discernible clusters of obese persons body-mass index, 30 were present in the network at all time points, and the clusters extended to three degrees of separation. These clusters did not appear to be solely attributable to the selective formation of social ties among obese persons. A person's cha...

An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service.

Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

DIY Brainless Robots Exhibit Collective Behavior.

We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

*  The ASMR Experiment: ASMR and social grooming
... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association. On average, obese adults had about 3.22 hospital stays in a 20-year period compared with 2.47 stays for the normal-w...

... n American elderly women - ResearchGate. Article Extreme social isolation, use of community-based senior support services, and mortality among African American elderly women. Thomas Laveist. Thomas Laveist Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Message author. Impact Factor: 1.74. ABSTRACT The effect of extreme social isolation and use of community-based senior services on longevity was examined in a national sample of African American elderly women ages 55-96. Consistent with previous research on the social integration/mortality link, African American elderly women who were extremely socially isolated were hypothesized to have a higher 5-year mortality rate. Use of community senior services did not have a relationship on mortality. Moreover, considering that the previous studies LaVeist et al., 1997 which found that the quality of life and the satisfaction level of life at the old age are related to how much the elderly are socially connected, the issue of social isolation for the elderly does m...

In a study examining factors that influence successful aging, researchers found that among a group of men in their 70s, social isolation was linked to increased levels of C- reactive protein CR-P, interleukin-6 IL-6 and fibrinogen in the blood. People with elevated CRP and fibrinogen have higher risks for heart disease and stroke. Social isolation may influence these different inflammatory markers and may be one way social relationships influence our health, said lead author Eric B. Loucks and his colleagues at Harvard and the University of California, Los Angeles, investigated CRP, IL-6 and fibrinogen as potential biological links between friends, family and health. As part of that study, researchers drew and froze blood samples in 1988. Researchers failed to find any correlation between the degree of social isolatio...

In addition, the size of the region of the second conduction type is small because the region of the lower second conduction type is formed adjacent to the lower tilted parts of the edges of local oxide films for element isolation in the region of the first conduction type, but does not reduce the light-receiving area because the layer of the first conduction type forms the light-receiving part.

After expression in E. coli and isolation on gluthation-sepharose and talon-resin, respectively, I got both proteins. On SDS-PAGE are some impurities visible, which are mostly due to copurification. Therefore I tried a lot of additional methods for a second purification step gelfiltration, IEX-HPLC with anion and cation-exchanger, calf-thymus-DNA-columns, Hi Trap SP Sepharose columns. But in all cases I got the same phenomenon, the proteins did not bind to anything, they always came down in the void volume. I tried a lot in changing the parameters, like isolation with or without 1% Triton 100, with RNase/DNase, with beta-ME, with DTT, different buffer-systems and different pH-values.

In contrast, academic achievement appears to have little effect on adult well-being. The exploratory work, looking at the child and adolescent origins of well-being in adulthood, is published online in Springer’s Journal of Happiness Studies. We know very little about how aspects of childhood and adolescent development, such as academic and social-emotional function, affect adult well-being – defined here as a combination of a sense of coherence, positive coping strategies, social engagement and self-perceived strengths.

Friends' support can help cancer patients. Friends' support can help cancer patients. Ask questions, but stay positive. Of course, relationships are affected during a disease as devastating as breast cancer, but we have some control over whether this effect is negative or positive. Even though you may not know what to say in a given moment or what to do in a given situation, experts remind us the relationship that counts is with the person, not with the illness. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly found types of cancer. A woman's concept of breast cancer may color all her interactions, making it difficult to relate normally. According to studies, attitude can affect treatment and have real consequences in terms of well-being and survival. Certainly the most important thing anyone can do to support a friend or relative with breast cancer is to be there while she begins to navigate the grueling course of treatment, recovery and ongoing lifestyle adjustments. Each woman's ability to deal with cancer differ...

Online contributes to the diversity of social networks. Some years ago there was interest in the possibility of what was known as ‘cyber-balkanisation’ – the expectation that online activity would create silos of communities of interest at the expense of diversity of networks; and perhaps that local communities based on face-to-face contact might atrophy as a direct consequence. I even wrote an article for the New Statesman about it, it must have been at least ten years ago. Now here ’s research to confirm that social networks are not less diverse when mediated by online, and that online use makes a ‘positive and substantive total contribution’ to network diversity and hence to the social capital that is accessible through personal networks. This is the most recent output from Keith Hampton and his colleagues based on the data collected for the Pew Internet and American Life Project which has grabbed our attention a couple of times in the past, here and here. The argument goes something like this....

Social Network Theory and Physician Prescribing Behavior. March 23rd, 2011. Sources: MIT Technology Rev., WSJ Health Blog Subjects: Providers, Social media. Tweet. Several years ago, scientists led by Harvard’s Nicholas Christakis showed how happiness and obesity can spread through social networks. The team showed for example, that when certain people gained weight, the chances increased that others in their social network would also gain weight. Similar analyses have mapped-out the impact of social networks on influenza outbreaks and cigarette smoking. Now, Christakis has teamed-up with Larry Miller to create MedNetworks, a company that uses the same network mapping methods to identify physicians that most strongly influence their colleagues when it comes to prescribing drugs. If their work proves successful, they will surely find plenty of drug makers who will pay for their insights. The Boston-based start-up relies on medical claims data for its mapping studies. It claims to be able to track growth in t...

(1/3932) Urine release in freely moving catheterised lobsters (Homarus americanus) with reference to feeding and social activities.

Previous studies suggest that urine-borne pheromones play an important role in lobster agonistic and sexual behaviour. This paper investigates the pattern of urine release in catheterised, but otherwise freely moving, adult lobsters with respect to feeding, social and non-social activities. Lobsters on average released 4.1 ml (1 % of body mass) of urine over a 12 h period; this more than doubled to 10.6 ml over the 12 h period after feeding. Hourly monitoring revealed that most urine was released in the first hour after feeding (2.84 ml). With the exception of the first hours after feeding, urine release was intermittent, with pauses lasting up to 17 h. The probability of urine release per hour in unfed lobsters was 0.34 (median); this value increased during agonistic interactions elicited by the introduction of a conspecific (median 0. 63) and during activity initiated by non-social disturbance (median 0.56). Mean urine volume during output hours in unfed lobsters amounted to 1.09 ml h-1. This volume was significantly increased by the presence of a conspecific (1.88 ml h-1) and decreased during activity initiated by non-social disturbances (0.56 ml h-1). No sex-specific differences in urine release were found. The data demonstrate that lobsters control their urine release in a manner dependent on behavioural context. This supports recent findings suggesting the use of urine for chemical signalling in agonistic interactions.  (+info)

(2/3932) Characterization of socio-psychological stress-induced antinociception in the formalin test in mice.

The antinociceptive effect induced by exposure to socio-psychological (PSY) stress using a communication box was assessed by the formalin test in mice, compared with those by exposure to footshock (FS) stress and forced swimming (SW) stress. After the termination of stress exposure, whereas exposure to FS- and SW-stress resulted in the attenuation of the formalin-induced biphasic pain response over 15 min, no appreciable antinociceptive effect was found in the case of PSY stress. When exposure to PSY stress was started during the period of early or late phase of pain after the formalin injection, the antinociceptive effect was maintained for 5-15 min; however, further exposure to PSY stress was not effective for producing antinociception. In the tail-pinch test, likewise, exposure to PSY stress longer than 5 min rather decreased the intensity of antinociception. We conclude that PSY stress in this tonic pain paradigm produces antinociception, but further continuous exposure to the emotional stress caused mice to become recuperative even in such a fear-inducing situation.  (+info)

(3/3932) Psychosocial factors related to adolescent smoking: a critical review of the literature.

OBJECTIVE: To extend the analysis of psychosocial risk factors for smoking presented in the United States surgeon general's 1994 report on smoking and health, and to propose a theoretical frame of reference for understanding the development of smoking. DATA SOURCES: General Science Index, Medline, PsycLIT, Sociofile, Sociological Abstracts, and Smoking and Health. Holdings of the Addiction Research Foundation of Ontario Library as well as the authors' personal files. STUDY SELECTION: Reviewed literature focused on studies that examined the association of sociodemographic, environmental, behavioural, and personal variables with smoking. DATA SYNTHESIS: Adolescent smoking was associated with age, ethnicity, family structure, parental socioeconomic status, personal income, parental smoking, parental attitudes, sibling smoking, peer smoking, peer attitudes and norms, family environment, attachment to family and friends, school factors, risk behaviours, lifestyle, stress, depression/distress, self-esteem, attitudes, and health concerns. It is unclear whether adolescent smoking is related to other psychosocial variables. CONCLUSIONS: Attempts should be made to use common definitions of outcome and predictor variables. Analyses should include multivariate and bivariate models, with some attempt in the multivariate models to test specific hypotheses. Future research should be theory driven and consider the range of possible factors, such as social, personal, economic, environmental, biological, and physiological influences, that may influence smoking behaviour. The apparent inconsistencies in relationships between parental socioeconomic status and adolescent disposable income need to be resolved as does the underlying constructs for which socioeconomic status is a proxy.  (+info)

(4/3932) The urban environment, poverty and health in developing countries.

The process of urbanization could be described as one of the major global environmental changes directly affecting human health today. Populations particularly affected are in developing countries where rapid urban growth has been accompanied by massive urban poverty. Urban environmental health impacts, particularly the impact on adults of an environment of poverty, are still poorly understood. Definitions of the urban environment tend to be physical, excluding the complex ramifications of a social setting of disadvantage. This paper provides a brief overview of existing knowledge on the links between environment, poverty and health in urban areas of developing countries, with an emphasis on the policy implications implied by research on health differential between groups within cities. The paper argues that urban poverty and inequalities in conditions between groups within cities present a central crisis confronting urban policy in terms of human health and quality of life. The paper suggests that definitions of the urban environment tend to consider only the physical, and not the social complexity of the urban setting. The review concludes that the scale and the complexity of the urban crisis in developing countries demands a real commitment to re-thinking the management of cities to address multiple deprivation. The paper suggests that this challenges urban professionals who continue to act with a bias towards unintegrated single sector solutions despite claims to the contrary.  (+info)

(5/3932) Is long-term maintenance of health-related physical activity possible? An analysis of concepts and evidence.

The phenomenon of maintenance of health-related physical activity is explored through an analysis of the underlying concepts and of the existing empirical evidence. The following targets were used for the analysis: (1) the concept of health-related physical activity, (2) the concept of maintenance, (3) common manifestations of maintenance in everyday living, (4) the promotional and behavioral characteristics of health-related physical activity, (5) the known determinants of free-living physical activity, and (6) intervention trials on physical activity in free-living groups. The analyses revealed the inherent resistance to adoption and maintenance of physical activity, particularly that of high-intensity and program-centered activities, the persistence, however, of many simple everyday routines and habits, the multiple determinants discovered for free-living physical activity and a few empirical demonstrations of the successful promotion of the maintenance of physical activity over a year or two. The promotion of the maintenance of health-related physical activity seems thus a distinct possibility provided that (1) the promotional situation is analyzed thoroughly, (2) the activity is chosen carefully with an emphasis on moderation in intensity and integration into the participant's life-style, (3) multiple promotional contacts are used, and (4) support from the participant's social and physical environment is provided. There is a need for more research on the maintenance of health-related physical activity using the stages of change models, behavior modification principles, self-control concepts, the concept of intrinsic motivation and the Relapse model. The method of analysis used here could apply to other health-related behaviors as well.  (+info)

(6/3932) School and community influences on adolescent alcohol and drug use.

Social environment risk factors present in schools and communities have not been thoroughly investigated. This study cross-sectionally examined the social environments of schools and communities, and their influence on adolescent alcohol and drug use. Survey responses of eighth grade students (N = 2309), a random half of their parents (n = 943), community leaders (n = 118), school principals (n = 30), school counselors (n = 30) and chemical health providers (n = 14) were pooled to create indices of social environmental norms, role models, social support and opportunities for non-use of alcohol. Each index was examined for its association with prevalences from 30 schools of alcohol use onset, last-month alcohol use, heavy alcohol use and last-year marijuana use in univariate and stepwise regression analyses. Increases in the levels of norms, role models and opportunities for non-use predicted decreases in alcohol use prevalences. The explanatory power of the examined constructs in multivariate analyses was acceptably high (R2: 38-53%). These findings further support the notion that community-wide efforts need to be launched to affect changes in the normative, role model and opportunity structures of adolescents' social environments in order to curb adolescent alcohol and drug use.  (+info)

(7/3932) Psychosocial correlates of health compromising behaviors among adolescents.

The objective of the present study was to examine psychosocial correlates of diverse health-compromising behaviors among adolescents of different ages. The study population included 123,132 adolescents in sixth, ninth and 12th grades. Psychosocial correlates of substance abuse, delinquency, suicide risk, sexual activity and unhealthy weight loss behaviors were examined. Risk-taking disposition was significantly associated with nearly every behavior across age and gender groups. Other consistent correlates included sexual abuse and family connectedness. Correlates of health-compromising behaviors tended to be consistent across age groups. However, stronger associations were noted between sexual abuse and substance use for younger adolescents, and risk-taking disposition and school achievement were stronger correlates for older youth. The results suggest the presence of both common and unique etiological factors for different health-compromising behaviors among youth. The results emphasize the importance of focusing on positive 'risk-taking' experiences for youth in prevention programs; being sensitive to possible sexual abuse experiences among both female and male adolescents in health-care consultations; integrating strategies for improved family connectedness into health promotion efforts; and making school relevant for all adolescents.  (+info)

(8/3932) Prisoners of the proximate: loosening the constraints on epidemiology in an age of change.

"Modern epidemiology" has a primary orientation to the study of multiple risk factors for chronic noncommunicable diseases. If epidemiologists are to understand the determinants of population health in terms that extend beyond proximate, individual-level risk factors (and their biological mediators), they must learn to apply a social-ecologic systems perspective. The mind-set and methods of modern epidemiology entail the following four main constraints that limit engagement in issues of wider context: 1) a preoccupation with proximate risk factors; 2) a focus on individual-level versus population-level influences on health; 3) a typically modular (time-windowed) view of how individuals undergo changes in risk status (i.e., a life-stage vs. a life-course model of risk acquisition); and 4) the, as yet, unfamiliar challenge of scenario-based forecasting of health consequences of future, large-scale social and environmental changes. The evolution of the content and methods of epidemiology continues. Epidemiologists are gaining insights into the complex social and environmental systems that are the context for health and disease; thinking about population health in increasingly ecologic terms; developing dynamic, interactive, life-course models of disease risk acquisition; and extending their spatial-temporal frame of reference as they perceive the health risks posed by escalating human pressures on the wider environment. The constraints of "the proximate" upon epidemiology are thus loosening as the end of the century approaches.  (+info)


What effects do beta-blocker drugs have on social interaction?


I read that beta-blockers will make you unable to get excited.  Just curious if anyone has taken these in a social environment, and if they noticed their interactions with people changing.  Is the nervousness impulse reduced?  Does one still get anxious by anxiety-causing events (like a hot girl talking to you at a bar)?  Thanks.
----------

I've been taking them for a little over 4 years now.  The beta blocker counteracts adrenaline. As a result, you do not get particularly upset or angry and you don't show a lot of excitement.  This seems to upset some people because they do not read a reaction from you. 

On a camping trip recently, a woman who was prone to speaking her mind was somewhat upset - " you don't get excited over anything - I think you are depressed...."  After I explained that my medications flat lined my emotions she shut up.  I also had a boss that couldn't seem to cope with it.  

 If this is what you are thinking about, I would not advise taking a beta blocker to talk to hot women.  It could be dangerous if not prescribed.  Hate to see you go into cardiac arrest but it would certainly give a woman something to talk about.  The other thing is you could quite possibly come across like a zombie. 


Can someone with undiagnosed depression recover naturally without drugs or treatment?


Someone who was depressed for any amount of time from a few months to two years shall we say - if their depression went undiagnosed, would it be possible for them to make a natural recovery through a change in social environment/circumstances, without ever having seen a professional or receiving drugs or treatment?
Thanks for the good answers everyone, I feel I should just point out that I'm not asking because I think I have depression, I'm fine.
----------

The answer Johana, in my experience, is yes, but with some qualifications.

The experience I refer to is having had 13 years of anxiety disorders and trying everything that exists to get rid including becoming the ultimate [boring?] geek when it comes to reading up on the subject.

To the qualifications I mentioned.

Firstly I learned you cannot do this on your own i.e. effect a cure, so you have to go and get advice/help/support from someone. 

You will not, again, in my experience, need drugs or medication, unless prescribed for you of course, as they can only ever treat the symptoms - having said that, if things are tough, then maybe you should go visit the doctor? - you cannot mess with your heath.

What anyone who has anxiety disorders needs to do is to find out the root cause, or causes, of their disorder, and handle and then get rid of them - and that is what I did - but again, it is virtually impossible to do this on your own.

There are techniques you can learn, and you can incorporate those into your every day life - but - by saying you learn them means someone needs to teach them to you - you can find more info on the site below, should be a good source for you - just follow the links for more info.

You are right on the button with what you say, as your anxiety/depression could indeed be rooted in your social environment/circumstances, but again it may not.

In cases such as this I believe in going to people who not only have suffered what I have suffered, but also who found the way out, and that is where the site below may help.

You DEFINITELY can do what you ask Johana, but not alone - but YOU CAN DO IT - I know, I have the T-Shirt!!

And by the way, I also sought a no medication answer, and I certainly did not want to go visit anyone - both of those were a huge no-no.

Best of luck to you - and I hoipe this is of some help.


Is it normal for people with anxiety and depression to feel socially paralyzed and confusion?


i work as a dishwasher at a restaurant where i am working 7 hours a night usually. for some reason from a mixture of an overwhelming workload and a congested social environment its an anxious nightmare for me and i often feel socially incapable and almost confused for whatever reason. i this behaviour odd for someone with sa?
----------

I also have SA and I find my self in that situation, if you work with some one you know well and are comfortable with ask them for help or wear headphones... lol but the way you are feeling is completely normal, I always feel overwhelmed and confused at the same time, usually before a panic attack. Just remember, it's not as bad as you imagine and people care more then you think.


what are some inexpensive activities for a company of 20 to do afterwork in Houston?


We are trying to create a fun environment at work.  Currently our paths only cross 2 x a week for 1-1/2 hours... not enough to build a social environment.  Your suggestions of success are greatly appreciated.

Go bowling.  Seriously.  I did that with my employees once.  Everyone thought it would be boring until they were actually there and did it.  Then it was a lot of fun and people let loose a bit.  Tons of laughter.  And I got some good ideas from them about ways to improve the business.  It's a great ice-breaker.


Do vain conceited women make better mothers ?


Do you think attractive, self centered women have better maternal instincts ?

 Ex. A female like this will make sure their child has the latest and best clothes, the finest material things, keep up appearances, right play schools and right playmates . The child will be in a better social environment.  

  Do you think vain mothers are better mothers ?

"Ex. A female like this will make sure their child has the latest and best clothes, the finest material things, keep up appearances, right play schools and right playmates . The child will be in a better social environment. "


Since I don't feel that any of those things make a good parent then I would have to say that those particular qualities do not necessarily make a good mother.   If the mother is vain and conceited then she probably is also a bit self centered and shallow, which in my opinion are not good qualities for any person including mothers.
A good mother teaches selflessness and compassion.  
There is nothing wrong with being fashionable.  The problem comes from thinking fashion and beauty are more important than substance and character.

Does anybody know if Bipolar Disorder 1 is linked with caffeine addiction?


Lately i've been drinking a lot of caffeine containing beverages because I've been needing to go to bed late and wake up early, and also lately I've noticed changes in my personality. I've been a lot more talkative, more outgoing, more psychotic behavior, and felt depressed when not in a very social environment. Just wondering if anyone knows if i might be bipolar.
----------

Hard to say with what you have presented.. but the key is in how long the episodes last.  Natural highs and lows are part of life, but only you can answer if they are more severe then what you deem to be personally normal.  Caffeine does not cause Bipolar Disorder, it is a chemical in-balance in the serotonin levels in the brain.  If you have drastic highs and lows it is a possibility...


Why can i go months without smoking?


For 8-10 years now i have been smoking 'casually' - meaning i can smoke for a month and then not smoke again for 4-5 months or more, smoke for 2 days hardcore, and not want one or have any desire for one for many months.

Is getting or being addicted something that comes on from more then just doing a substance? Is there personality, body chemistry, social environment, and other factors that combine to determine addiction? Or does it just come down to the simple fact that i dont want to do it all the time?

Just very curious about this.  Thank you.
----------

Most smokers start off this way. Nobody wakes up and says "I think I'll become a 2 pack a day smoker today!"
you probably have a social environment in which you smoke which does not occur very often, so the influence is not there.
You could become a regular smoker any time, due to a number of factors.
My guess is that you're smoking in a very specific context, therefore your addiction (at the moment) is highly context specific.


Why do I turn red when I drink Alcohol? Could I be allergic?


Here is what happens - I drink alcohol and my face turns bright red and feels like it's on fire. Also my neck and chest get red blotches. The weird thing is, this does not happen all the time. Usually not when I am drinking just beer, but if I drink the hard stuff mostly. I am 36 now and I remember it starting when I was around 20. Then as I recall, it was not as bad for a few years, but in the last few years has come back worse than ever. To the point where if I am in a social environment, I have to leave because it is so noticeable and embarrassing. What could be causing this? Is it a serious problem as to where I should stop drinking, or just more of something I need to get used to without having to worry about? I have heard of something called "Asian flush" where a percentage of Asians lack a certain enzyme that breaks down alcohol, but I am a white boy from Jersey. Could this be my problem?
Also wanted to add - I am a scotch drinker and very rarely does it happen when I drink scotch, but always happens if I drink rum or vodka.
Don't think it's Rosacea as I did a little research on this and it tells me that Rosacea is also called adult acne and makes u break out in pimples. It also says that drinking alcohol does not make it worse. I have never had a problem with acne in my life and the only time I ever get red is when I drink alcohol.

it sounds like u r allergic to just the hard stuff if u dont break out when u drink beer then just stick to that
