scalp and face itching and flushing

I have episodes of itching and flushing in the face and scalp region. I also flush very easily and can feel my face getting hot over the slightest changes in excitement, or activities. Anyone have this?

Geez ....How old are you? I started to experience this after I hit 40. I really do not know what causes it, but it does happen on occassion.

Re: scalp and face itching and flushing

For as long as I can remember I've had this similar situation. I always get face rashes and blush over any little thing. I've never had the scalp irritation though. There is a condition called Rosacia (don't know if spelling is correct) that you should look into. I am now 22 and I must have outgrown the blushing...but I still experience an itchy face/neck/chest rash if I get angry, upset or excited. Good luck.

Re: scalp and face itching and flushing

Me too. For all of my adult life (I am thirty-something) I have had a tendency to flush on my face, with a feeling of heat. I have had intermittent chronic urticaria for 3 years. My most recent big breakout of hives was last fall and included swelling for the first time. With lots of antihisamines the hives and most of the swelling went away, but I have been left with much more pronounced flushing on my face than I ever had before, which happens almost every day. I also continue to flush/swell on my hands and feet. And sometimes it's all accompanied by itch in random places all over my body. I can't figure it out, it doesn't make sense...

FWIW, when I mentioned the facial flushing to my allergist he took a good look at my skin and said he thought I have some rosascia. I don't know whether I believe that or not.
