The sensations of redness and warmth to the touch suggest dilation of blood vessels...it almost sounds like a type of "hot flash." How old are you? Sometimes menopausal hot flashes are perceived in a localized part of the body vs generalized over the entire body. Review with your doctor to decide on tests ...Read more
