Yes, this is probably due to menopause. You are having symptoms of flushing. The capillary beds near the skin dilate and this causes the red appearance. This is also probably causing the pins and needles sensations that you are having.
Considering hormone replacement therapy is one approach to these symptoms. There are strong pros and cons on this topic!! The supplement of black cohosh may help some women with these type symptoms.
