In brief: No.

Sunstroke occurs when you get dehydrated and run out of sweat, and you overheat because your body's thermostat can no longer keep your body cool.
If it's your face that is bright red and flushing, you most likely have rosacea. A dermatologist can tell you for sure, and prescribe medications to control it.
