Red Cheeks and blushing

I am male, 24 and have always had red cheeks. Over the last 4-5 years it has smashed my confidence into bits and for no reason wat so ever my cheeks will flare up duriing the day at work and can last for hours before they go down! If i drink alchohol they flare up so i cant go to the pub anymore or go clubbing or anything like that! Its wrecking my career and social life i find myself sitting in as i cant face people most days.

Blushing has got worse over the years, i actualy go bright red even talking to my friends now for no reason at all! I would do anything not to have this huge problem!

I have read that it could be blood vessels in my face dont work properly and vitiman e can help, i have tried all stuff like this, i have even used green creams which are supposed 2 damper the red. Nothing works!!

This is affecting my life massivly and im sick of it there must be something someone can do to help! I wud even get a loan 2 pay for laser treatment!! I have lost my gf and dont see family and friends because of this problem!

You will find a lot of blushers at ESFB Channel. Also many post at Social Phobia World. You are not alone with your difficulties caused by blushing. You might also consider if Rosacea is your problem.

I would get to your doctor and check to see if it is rosecea. It sounds like it could be.

Re: Red Cheeks and blushing

Have you been to see a dermatologist? Sounds like you have full blown Rosecea. I have recently been to a dermatologist and that is what I have. My dermatologist said it will only get worse as the older I get because of the thinning of the skin. She prescribed a skin medication that I use every night (burns like crazy) but it appears to be working some. Get to know your triggers, sounds like from your email that alcohol and stress maybe your triggers. I can't put any type of lotion on my face even warm water makes my face blood red and I so try to not get stressed because if I do like you my face flares up for hours. There are laser treatments that you can do as well. Try to stay away from the internet about this disease it will scare you to death.
