. This condition of hyperpyrexia associated with facial blushing is little understood and not typically recognized by many physicians. Medications commonly used to prevent or control blushing include beta blockers (Inderal) and anxiolytics (sedatives). These medications are usually of limited benefit .Effective treatment for facial blushing with hyperpyrexia is Micro ETS of T2. To read more about this subject please click the link just below:

Reply to V. Yetimyan   M.D.'s Post: I forgot to mention that it is not just my face although that is what is upsetting me the most as its always red & hot & burning up, but I generally sweat more than usual in the armpits, genital area & feet. It has all seemed to have got progressively worse since I had my son nearly 6 years ago. I was pyrexial in labour & ever since then I have not been able to tolerate heat very well at all. I don't know what to think, I have gone from thinking I have some kind of anxiety disorder (I do get stressed easily) to thinking something has happened to my body or hormones so I don't know if seeing a dermotologist would help me. Any more advice on offer please, I would be so so grateful, thanks.

Hi, You may need to see an Endocrinologist and Psychiatrist beside seeing a Dermatologist. Psychiatrist consult can help in terms of controlling stress with medication if it is necessary. Endocrinologist can check your hormone levels especially Estrogen and Thyroid hormone levels etc. Your Family physician should combine all this report and make it one , prescribing medications reflecting all the orders of the consulting physicians. In the mean time to get some relief , you can do the following:



  • avoid sun shine
  • avoid stress
  • avoid food additives and hot pepper
  • avoid liquor , caffeine
  • avoid eating large meals
  • quit smoking
