why does my face turn red at night

This is weird - lately almost every night my cheeks have gotten really red and hot at night. Before I go to bed (which is usually late). I am not sweaty at all but my cheeks are on FIRE! No fever, nothing. What is going on? I have no medical conditions that I am aware of, am on no meds, and am 34 years old. I am perplexed. Is it the same time every night or the same place? Could it be an allergic reaction to some new sheets, bed clothes, or jammies that you didn t prewash? laundry soap, candles, etc? New slippers? Just some ideas? It does seem to be the same time every night - LATE at night.


Maybe I m staying up too late? It s before I go to bed and I don t have new sheets or any of the above, nothing new in my life that I can think of. I never thought that I may be having some reaction to something. Haven t taken the yeast assassin I got yet. Hmmm, I will brainstorm this idea. Thanks, HB. I will brainstorm. Have you ever checked your blood pressure when you have these symptoms? My
dh s cheeks will turn red and heat when his blood pressure is high. Just a thought in case you haven t thought of this.


Hi, I m a 20 year old male with no major previous medical problems except for IBS I rarely need medication for. The only other thing worth mentioning is arthroscopic shoulder surgery 4 years ago from a sport injury. I have fair skin and have had rosacea for about 6 years. Over the past several months, however, I have noticed that my face gets very red and hot the same time every evening. It s so precise now that I can estimate the time just based on how I feel. This is usually from 5 to 9:30 PM every night.


I have seen two dermatologists who originally thought I was doing something to trigger it. I ve kept food logs, don t drink or smoke, no drugs, don t drink soda, healthy blood pressure and weights. I avoid the usual triggers including spicy and hot foods. I ve had blood work done to check for thyroid problems, vitamin deficiencies, Lyme disease, celiac disease, CBC, etc. Everything came back normal. As mentioned previously, I ve kept food logs, avoid exercise in the evening, and don t go from indoors to outdoors around the time it happens.


My doctors have been unable to help and, as a still unexperienced med student, I m out of ideas myself. The only other thing I could imagine is stress, yet this occurs even when I m home without school, work, or anything to worry about. I did take Cymbalta for anxiety a while back and this was a problem while on and off the medication. Part of the reason my doctor suggested stopping was to see if this issue resolves. Could this be stress that the Cymbalta did not help with and I m unaware of? Or something else. I m absolutely stumped here. Thanks.
