For the past 2 years i have had a very hot and red face, pretty much all the time, the only time is seems to go away is when i'm sleeping, and soon returns after I'm up and about
.
Nothing seems to trigger it or make it worse, it's just always there.. I notice when i get out of a hot shower, it seems to be almost white again, but after 10 mins in the washroom it is back again.

It is very embarrassing, people ask me everyday why I look so sunburned, it has killed my confidence level at bars, and other outings when people keep asking me about it.

I do take pills for anxiety, but the red face had started before i was taking the pills.. I really dont know what to do about this, i notice that in the winter the red face is slightly lesser, but in the summer i apply sunblock all the time, but seems to do no good.

Any help would be great

  • i just asked my doc to refer me to some kind of specialist as i get a red face and I am sick to death of it. I am not an exceptionally vain person, but it makes me feel so ugly when i'm red and i've noticed my self esteem has plummeted. Other than the redness, I have pretty good skin and don't want to have to wear foundation everyday to cover it up or prevent the redness from showing when it does occur. i wonder if it has anything to do with anxiety, as I too am on medication for it, but had this problem way before I was put on them.

  • Do you have any other symptoms, or just the redness?
