    Default Flushing without the actual redness?

    Is there anyone else that have the same symptom as I do?

    I sometimes get really red when I flush but....
    Most of the time when I "flush", for example after eating a heavy meal, my face doesn't get that red at all! However I get an extreme feeling of heat all over my face. This can be described as burning and stinging and is extremely tough to deal with, especially in social sitations. Mostly because it makes me able to blush for no real reason at all!

    This term is referred to as 'Ghost Flushing'

    Was it you that posted once before that this "ghost flushing" could be controlled/eliminated by RLT?

    I get this, the feeling makes you think you must look bright red, but in reality your skin is pretty much the same as normal, which in turn makes you more likely to blush/flush due to emotions etc.

    It's a real mofo...
