What causes flushing and hot flashes in the face and hands?

Flushing: many thing: The main causes are hot flashes, hyperthyroidism, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder. Other causes include morphine withdrawal, and menopause. Also in the list are emphysema, a gastric or pancreatic tumor, anaphylaxis, lupus, sotos syndrome, and woodhouse-sakati syndrome. Obviously you need to see your family doctor or a dermatologist to rule out physical causes and if you have a psychiatric cause make an appointment with a psychiatrist and psychologist.

Unlikely: It would be important to know how big the burned area is and if you still have the ability to feel light touch in that area

Have hot feet and hands. Have a temperature. What could be the cause?

Have hot feet and hands. Have a temperature. What could be the cause?

Many things: Can cause your symptoms! There are a number of things that can cause your temperature to go up (viruses/bacteria, even things like hyperthyroidism!) Sometimes our blood vessels will dilate as a way to lower our body temperature, especially in warm environments - this causes the feet and hands to feel hot. I would see your doctor if it doesn't improve!

My hands tingles after hot showers or washing dishes with hot water it may last for complete 1 day, what are the causes for that?

My hands tingles after hot showers or washing dishes with hot water it may last for complete 1 day, what are the causes for that?

Hmmmm...: That is certainly a new one for me! I've only been a doc for 30 years, so I'm still learning. Maybe another doc on this forum will recognize the cause right off. However, it is certainly not normal, and if it is new, you need to get checked and find out why. Tingling can have lots of causes, including vitamin deficiencies. But the hot water factor & length of symptoms is a puzzle??? See doc!

Consider Raynaud's: Cold hands and feet can be triggered by stress, cold water and cold ambient temperature. You should be evaluated for possible raynaud's which is a vasomotor spasm of the small vessels in the fingers, toes, noes and ear lobes.

My hands and feet are always burning up. Even in the winter. It is so hot that I can't even sleep. What can cause this?

Acrodynia: The best sense I can make out of the symptoms you report is a rare condition called "acrodynia" (which means painful hands & feet). This is usually due to heavy metal poisoning like from mercury, etc. Otherwise you may have a painful peripheral neuropathy, which can be due to something like a cyst in the spinal cord or from unknown causes. Best to see a doctor to clarify.

Very unusual: I would make sure to check your blood pressure first. It sounds as if you are having some vascular like symptoms that are difficult to attribute to any one source without additional information.
