    Itchy scalp and face with flushing - stress related?


    Just want to see if I am winding myself up unnecessarily re my latest 'symptom'. I am very anxious at the moment and have developed an itchy scalp and flushed face with dryness and itchy eyebrows and nose. When I get hot my face starts to burn but there is little or no redness. There is no inflammation or scaling or anything visible on the skin at all. I am therefore wondering whether this is my mind causing this. Can anyone relate?

    Hi! I don't have the itching... but I sure do get the hot face/no redness that anyone can see. It comes and goes whenever it pleases. No rhyme or reason to it. I've watched my diet for similarities but have found none. It started about a month ago. It goes sometimes days without happening, and even one time went more than a week. I am 41 and am suspecting that I'm transitioning from peri-menopausal to menopausal! Think I'm going to have to pay for some real advice (go to the dr.)...
