Hi, im a 25/M, and sometimes my face gets very hot and red. Its not red everywhere, just in patches on my cheeks and neck, but its even hot to the touch. My hands are often cold when this happens. Seems to be triggered by alcohol. Also stress, anxiety, and uncomfortably hot or warm temperatures.

What could be causing this, and what should I do? It seems to be getting worse, sometimes it gets to what I call "Epic Red" where my face glows red so brightly that people stare. It almost looks like a burn wound or weird birthmark when it gets this bad. Please help, I've gotten nowhere with creams and ointments
