Skin Vasodilation : Sounds like dilation of the small blood vessels under your skin. This is commonly seen with heat, public speaking and other "stressful" events. Some people get improvement by using diphenhydramine (Benadryl) before situations where they are concerned it may occur. It's not to be used daily, but it's a safe option when you have times of especial concern. If other symptoms ask your doc.
