In brief: Excessive blushing

People normally blush when they get excited, angry or embarrassed.
Blushing can be triggered by scpicy foods, alcohol or hot temperature. Excessive blushing, however, can be due to social anxiety or panic disorder. Or medical conditions such as carcinoid syndrome, rosacea, or systemic mastocytosis can cause blushing. If you know the triggers such as foods, avoid them. I suggest you see a doctor.
