My dad gets red hands, face, chest, arms, when you press the skin you can see it turn white so I think he swells too, he is on blood pressure meds, is this something to do with that or something else, he eats really healthy?

thanks for any advice

  • Many millions of people are on blood pressure meds (me included), and you don't see/hear what you describe to any great extent. Since you could write a small book on all the things that will cause what you describe, you should consider getting your dad to see his primary-care provider, especially if his skin is symptomatic in any way.
