This : This may be nothing more than a dilation of blood vessels, flushing, in response to some environment or emotional event. An allergic reaction typically will last longer and have other symptoms, such as itching or pain.With out an exam it is difficult to assess and provide an accurate answer. See your physician as soon as possible for an exam.

It : It can be allergy-related, but there are many other causes. You don't tell us if you have any other symptoms. You definitely should see your doctor.
