Facial Flushing Overview

Facial flushing is the sudden redness of the face from extra blood entering the facial area. Simple causes include blushing, exercise, and anger. Facial flushing may also occur with “hot flashes” (e.g. in menopause) and various other causes of flushing. Facial flushing needs to be distinguished from similar symptoms such as facial rash, petechiae, hives, rosacea, and other facial redness.
