Flushing when tired

Recommended Posts

So, my girlfriend was telling me how her face gets really flushed, red, and warm before bed and it seems like only when she's tired and ready for bed. I witnessed it myself and now we're both wondering what causes this. Anyone else ever heard of this or know what could possibly cause this? Thanks in advance.

Heya

Does sound like classic Rosacea Type 1- symptoms are redness, flushing with burning or hot sensations. Warm - hot showers can easilly trigger Rosacea flushing, as can other things like heavy exercise, alcohol, spicy foods, warm rooms/temps, tiredness, hot temp foods, sun etc Triggers vary for each Rosacean. Mine particulary is prone to flaring up mid-late afternoons and evenings during Summer especially.

Rosacea is often gentically inherited, but can also be induced by medications (i.e. Accutane), prescription topicals (i.e. retina-A or steroid cream), harsh cleansers (i.e. BP), sun, or stress etc

Here is some links for further info. Your GF should see a dermatologist if she is concerned about it so that a proper diagnosis can be obtained.
