Rosacea: The most common cause of flushing is rosacea, which can be reduced by avoiding alcohol, hot liquids, spicy foods, and anything else that you may notice is triggering the reaction. There are also medications available to treat it, such as low-dose Doxycycline and numerous topical creams, but you'll need a prescription for those.
