    Can Alcohol found in lotions soak into the bloodstream and affect the body?

    I have a serious allergy to Alcohol if I were to drink it.

    For example, I ended up in the hospital when drinking one Angry Orchard Rose. I was throwing up constantly for 2 days straight.

    Since I have this serious allergy, do I have to avoid all alcohol ingredients in lotions (or other items) when applying them topically?

    Do all alcohol ingredients affect me the same way? Or should I just avoid certain types in items I apply topically?

    Even if the alcohol is in the Inactive Ingredients list, do I have to worry if it goes into my bloodstream?
