I am not aware: Of any topical treatment. But you might want to ask your doctor about treatment with beta blockers if you are sure that your blushing is due to anxiety alone.

Don't try to coverup: Symptoms - treat the underlying issue.There are a # of ways to address anxiety: cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior modification, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychotropic medications, qi gong, tai chi, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, meditation, yoga, exercise program or progressive muscle relaxation.To address stress: talk about feelings ; address problems. Don't avoid.

them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol (or moderate).
