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.

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

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

Dermatologist: You need to see a dermatologist about this. Already you've had a serious adverse reaction to an over-the-counter topical medication. Please don't try another skin whitening product. Also, don't use any creams or scrubs that may cause irritation. Inflammation & irritation will only make things worse. Best wishes. ...Read more

No: Heart disease does not cause facial flushing. Niacin, which is used for heart disease often causes flushing. A rare disease called carcinoid syndrome which is due to excess serotonin can cause flushing but most flushing is related to temperature, emotions, exercise, alcohol or allergies. It may just be normal for you. Are you fair? ...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
