Hello,
I have a very bothersome and embarressing problem. During the course of the day I feel a flushing hot feeling coming over my nose ...it gets hot and then turns extremely red. It looks and feels horrible, not to mention everyone stares at me like I am a freak. This is very problematic since I deal with the public.

Let me give you some history; this never happened to me before, but I recently stopped my dosage of accutane and that is when I started noticing the problem. Prior to that I had a botox injection in that area and before that I had microderm ebrassion to clear up some acne and scarring. Please HELP since I have tried to get results from my dermatoligst and all I get is an antibiotic and a cream/sulpher based to cover up the problem.

Let me know if anything can be done...BTW the flushing only lasts for about a half an hour, but I never know when it will hit...ususally mid day.
