Greetings everyone, I am new to the site. And I could really use some advice and support.
First let me say, I do have Diabetes AND High Blood Pressure. I take Glucovance and Lisinopril/HCTZ for my conditions. A few years ago, I started having hot flashes and facial flushing. They tested me for the culprit and ruled out hormones or pre-menopause. Also although I have high blood presssure, they don't think it is high enough to cause these type of symptoms.
My face is very easy to blush and flush. My main puzzling question is:
Does Rosacea actually make the skin feel hot?? Sometimes it gets so hot that I take all my vitals. My blood pressure, blood sugar level and even my temperture. All come back normal.
I do have very tiny bumps on my cheek area. The redness is mostly on my cheeks right next to my nose area. (The apples of cheeks..maybe??) I can also see redness on the forehead and chin as well.
I also have facial dryness with itching that may or may not be related to this condition. Does anyone suffer from random itchy/creepy crawly sensations on the face?
That is about it. All I can think of right now. I am deserate to find some clues as to what I am going through right now. Tired of looking like I have a light sunburn on my face all the time lol.. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for listening.
