Why suddenly and frequently the Right side of my face and Ear turn red n get very hot. I can be sitting down and somebody tells me wats wrong why red?

Uncertain: Flushing is not uncommon, and can be triggered by emotions or things that dilate blood vessels (warm drinks, alcohol, certain meds). The fact that it is only happening on one side of your face is a bit more unusual. I would probably get it checked out, especially if you have other neurological symptoms on that side (numbness, skin sensitivity, etc...) ...Read more

My ears turn red and it feels like as if smoke is coming out is it stress or something else? It happens quite rare.

WhatYouBeenSmokin'?: Well, my first question is "what you been smokin'? " Next, under what circumstances, other than that, does it occur? And anything else happen? Like your heart racing?

Why do I get a headache and my head turn red after bending over?

Why do I get a headache and my head turn red after bending over?

Abdominal Pressure: Bending at the waist increases intra-abdominal pressure causing venous return to the heart to decrease. This backs up the blood being pumped from the heart to the periphery which for your upper body is your head. Increasing venous pressure causes increased pressure in the head which leads to that headache. That's also why your face turns red. Same thing from a valsalva maneuver. ...Read more

My head pains when I bend down and often my eyes turn red after bending for 3-5 seconds. What's happening to me?

Head pain occurring: When the your head is lower than the horizontal plane or below the level of your heart (as a rule of thumb) may be due to fluid in the frontal or maxillary sinuses.

Noticed that when I stop running, put hands to my side, & start walking my hands feel puffy, turn red & white dotted. Put hands over head to stop it.

May be normal: When you exercise, the blood vessels in your skin dilate to get rid of the heat generated by the muscle activity. The dilated blood vessels can cause puffiness. When you put your hands over head, that decreases the pressure in the veins. If it persists or is very annoying see a doctor to make sure there is no problem with your circulation. ...Read more

Over the last two months my ears started turning red and are hot and feel like they need to "pop", at first it was at the same time everyday, now it happen at random times, and sometimes not at all. What could be the cause?

Red ears: Hello, difficult to say but it sounds like an allergy of some sort, or a drug or alcohol s/effect. DO you take a medicine at that time? Like NICOTINIC ACID to lower cholesterol? That would do it. If my guess is correct just take a 1/2 an aspirin with it and it reduces the s/effects. Thanks ...Read more

What could cause an occasional hot sensation with redness & warm to touch on back of head and neck that lasts minutes hours or days?

Most hot and cold: Sensations involve misfiring or some sort of dysfunction of the sensory nerves of the skin. 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
