Well first of all I'm blonde,and I have some freckles.My cheeks always have a red tint to them and its really annoying.WHenever I do activity like get hot from playing sports or just being inside and its hot my cheeks get REALLY red...people always ask if im sun burnt.
Why does this happen? Also..when I drink alcohol they get very red and hot feeling as if im burning up,but its only my cheeks.My forehead and other body parts stay the same and dont feel hot at all..why is this?
Is there anything I can do to change this? None of my friends get red cheeks and its really bothering me a lot
that same thing happens to me...but not when i drink...but it is also on my arms like its really bad on my arms. a dermatologist told me once that its like the blood flow like showing through or something and that there was no way to get rid of it ...i hate dermatologists ive been to a bunch of them...they always **** me off saying things like that...but anyways you might want to ask a derm. about it (even though theyre evil) but just be glad its only your cheeks
I know what you guys are going through - I get it too. I'm very pale, so when I exercise, you can see it big time ALL OVER MY FACE. You can really see it in the summertime when it's hot out. I don't think there is anything you can do about it.
there is something you can have done,i have the same prop,and it is hell...you can have a opp done,which involes cutting a nerve under the arms and this stops the blushing and hot face...but it costs £4.000,which i know is a lot..
you say be glad its only your face,but thats worse because every one sees it on your face,and they think you are blushing all the time or think something is wrong and the more you think about going red and hot in the face the worse it is......i have had this for a bout 10 years now,and it is not nice,it stops me from going out in case i get hot and go bright red,drinking dose it and when i get nerves too...and when the heating is on in the house i burn up too....i try not to think about it but it is hard at times
I have had really red cheeks all my life, and I know how embarrassing it is, especially when you blush, etc. Luckily, I have found a solution that I have been doing for at least three years now: simply apply foundation every morning. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but simply dotting a little on your cheeks every morning takes about 30 seconds and lasts all day, and if you have a good foundation (I use TruBlend) and you blend it evenly, it is pretty much indetectable. Of course you can't wear it in every situation (it comes off when you're swimming or sweating a lot) but I find that it really helps me day to day.

I get easily flushed, too. I'm fair skinned. My embarrassing problem is my nose. When ever it's cold out (or if I cry) my nose turns BRIGHT red. Everyone used to tease me and call me "rudolph" when I was a kid. It still happens. I hate being out in the cold because of it.

hey everyone, i have the same problem. my cheeks always have a perm. redness to them and when i go into hot rooms my cheeks turn really red and burn, it is quite embarassing. well i will tell u what im doing about this annoying problem, i got so fed up with the burning sensation that i would do anything to get rid of it. So i am getting photoderms done, which is an intense pulsed light that gets rid of the damaged capillaries and new healthy ones form. Alot of rosacea patients get these done as well as different types of treatments such as lasers. Photoderms are supposed to reduce flushing, perm. redness, eliminate broken capillaries,etc. it is recommended that a person gets 5 treatments done, but of course it will depend on how bad your problem is, but a doctor would tell u that. so far i have had 2 done, i just got my second done monday the 3rd. results from the first one were not very significant but i could tell there was a difference, my flushing didnt last as long which is very good. The treatments are expensive about 300 to 500 a treatment. if u have any questions id be happy to help
