Skin Problems board

I also have this problem. I know how embarassing and aggravating it is. My doctor prescribed Atenolol (sp?) to take if I know I'm going to be in a stressful sitiuation ahead of time, such as testifying in court, which I had to do a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a cure for it or anything that you can take on a daily basis to control it 100%. Even though I've been out of school for many years, I can relate to what you're talking about - having all eyes on you during class. The exact same thing would happen to me. I'm not a redhead either, I'm a brunette w/ fair-medium skin.

Can you talk to your doctor about it? Maybe he/she can offer some suggestions. The bad part is, I think this is an uncommon condition so many doctors don't know much about it.

Good luck to you.
