Hi. I'm seventeen, female. I started having mild acne problems in September and started treating it with Clindamycin antibiotic lotion. I stopped using this a few weeks ago and am now using oral Minocycline antibiotics. However, since September, my face has been redder than normal, and the past week or so, it's been flushing terribly at random times. The past few days, when working out, blood will rush to my face, neck, and shoulders to the point where I'm extremely hot, blood is pounding in my face with needle-like sensations, and I look like I'm about to pass out.

Does anyone know what is causing this? It feels like there is too much blood circulating my face area, causing what looks like a constant, mild sunburn and frequent flushing. My face used to be very fair and even-toned. Thanks.
