redness / flushing
Redness, or flushing, is a common physical reaction to stress, embarrassment, anxiety, anger or other extreme emotions. Spicy foods, alcohol consumption, and high temperatures or a fever also can trigger flushing. Flushing is characterized by rapid reddening of your neck, upper chest and face.
Although rare, flushing may be linked to an underlying serious medical issue. See the skin experts at Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center to discuss your flushed skin.
