Do you have people ask you why you look so flushed? Being asked an embarrassing question frequently can negatively affect your confidence. The good news is that this symptom is often manageable. To solve this problem, you first have to determine what is causing the redness. The culprit may be one of the following:
Eczema is a skin disorder that causes dry and red skin. It commonly affects the face and triggers a rash (formation of blisters) that makes the skin itchy. Eczema that causes excessive scratching, can occur due to exposure to allergens such as dust, mold or pet dander. Even use of inappropriate soaps and shampoos can cause eczema and trigger itchiness and dry skin patches on the face. Source: Buzzle
Rosacea (roe-ZAY-she-uh) is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for a period of weeks to months and then diminish for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems.
Rosacea can occur in anyone. But it most commonly affects middle-aged women who have fair skin. While there’s no cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. If you experience persistent redness of your face, see your doctor for a diagnosis and proper treatment. Source: MayoClinic
Sunburn is a consequence of prolonged exposure to sunlight. It is a common occurrence after spending a day out in the sun and may even arise with the overuse of tanning beds. The electromagnetic waves damage the skin and triggers inflammation thereby leading to redness. Human skin can tolerate sunlight for only so long before sunburn occur. Sometimes mild sunburn can occur in the situations where it may seem unlikely. Sitting close to an open window on a sunny day or the reflection of light from snow or water can also cause sunburn. It may not seem as obvious and a little redness with a slight burning sensation of the skin may be all that is present. Source: HealthHype
