What can cause this and it gets worse when I get hot or mad the redness of my face.

Red face: Your face has many blood vessels -- and many are close to the surface of your skin. This can increase as you age. They are very responsive to emotion like embarrassment, anger, etc. Because of your mind-body connection. Also some people have a condition called rosacea -- you get red face w/spicy foods, heat, alcohol, etc http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/rosacea-7/default. Htm. ...Read more

What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it. Should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it. Should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

PainInTheTemple, Oy!: At your age it could be an inflamed temporal artery, which is a marker for inflammation to deeper arteries, some of which could affect your eye and eyesight. So best to go see your doctor right away. A blood test could give a fairly good answer. If it's not that (called "temporal arteritis) then your doctor could try and figure out something else with a sigh of relief that it wasn't arteritis. ...Read more

I burned my face with BP and it caused redness on my face. After it healed, the skin is darker and the texture is different (reflects light instead of smooth). Is my skin permanently damaged or will it return to as before?

I burned my face with BP and it caused redness on my face. After it healed, the skin is darker and the texture is different (reflects light instead of smooth). Is my skin permanently damaged or will it return to as before?

Chemical injury: I'm not sure what BP might be, but change in color (darker or lighter) is common after a skin injury - whether a scrape, burn or pressure. Younger individuals will tend to heal over time and the skin regain its appearance. It also depends on the depth of the injury and the size of the area. Talk to your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

What would cause my face to suddenly get hot and red? Redness lasts about 30 minutes body temp stays normal. Alergic reaction? This also happens sometime when I am in a stressful situation but most of the time I have no idea why

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. ...Read more

Sitting long time infront of laptop screen may cause face redness and dryness? Wt should I do to prevent it?

Laptop Use: I am not aware of any studies that purport to link extended laptop use with facial dryness and redness. The symptoms are more likely due to the environmental conditions at work - maybe a hot desk lamp, sun exposure through the window, etc. Review your surroundings carefully and try to isolate the culprit. There are many skin moisturizers that can address your dryness in the meantime. ...Read more

Facial redness: This may not be an allergic reaction but is a primary direct irritant reaction. I would favor applying a cortisone type ointment rather than aloe Vera. If there is deepening or spreading redness, secondary infection may be present and is a serious situation. See a physician promptly in that case. ...Read more
