Autonomic response: This is not unusual & is a normal physiological response of dilation of capillaries in your face. It's used by your body to cool down. Some people are genetically more prone to this. There is no reason to be embarrassed, in fact that could worsen it! Leaning relaxation techniques like meditation & self-hypnosis might help some.

Lately my face gets really red whn I exercise. Running with humid temp. My upper leg got warm red a bit itchy but the lower leg not my body not regulat?

Normal to get flush: Red face from vigorous exercise as circulation is increased to your face, arms, legs and torso. It may not be the best to run in humid temperature if it's very hot, and you must hydrate as much as possible to not get dehydrated even in humidity. If your upper leg gets itchy, you may be releasing histamine during your intense exercise. Not sure I'm answering your question completely. Please resubmit. ...Read more

After exercise I have a very red face except for a very pale white ring around my mouth. Is this something to be concerned about?

After exercise I have a very red face except for a very pale white ring around my mouth. Is this something to be concerned about?

NOT USUALLY: Redness in the face, with pallor around the mouth, is normal for some people after exercise. This is the result of increased blood flow to the face in an attempt by the body to cool itself. Usually the body cools itself through sweating, but not everyone has the same number of sweat glands. So, increased flushing may compensate for such reduction. Fyi, it may be exacerbated in rosacea + menopause. ...Read more
