Hi mate, It sounds like what I used to get in my late teens and early twenties, I was told it was just a bit of flushing caused by when I felt a bit anxious or self concious,my blood pressure would raise a wee bit and because the face consists of many more nerves, cells, arteries and capilleries, (wee arteries) it is more prone to this kind of flushing/blushing effect and the more I would be aware of the heat, it would make it worse.
Learning relaxation and breathing techniques helped me until it pretty much went away by itself, I'm in my thirties now and get the occassional rosie cheeks, but don't worry about it now and that is enough for it to subside. By the way I have been wanting to send a post about some medication I have started taking, can anyone tell me how to go about posting a thread, can't seem to work it out. Cheers and best wishes,
