Why Do Alcoholics Have Red Noses?


Alcoholics have red noses because of the reaction that is brought about by putting in too much alcohol in the system. Too much alcohol normally leads to a faster aging process of the skin. Alcoholics also have red noses because of the dilation of the tiny blood vessel in the skin.
