    Default why the difference?

    Day 1 . gyn workout, hot day, long walk home, shower coolish, face wash - severe neck, face chest flush, sevre burning lasting 2 hours

    Day 2 . v.hard gym workout long walk home, shower coolish, face wash - very minor flush, barely noticeable, no burning, lasts 15 mins


    shoul a person be pleased that on some occasions, there skin can 'cope', does it mean all is not lost and the damage isnt unrepairable, its hard to understand the mechanism for the different reactions on 2 days.

    Thoughts anyone.......

    What were you thinking about after the shower when you flushed?

    Were you rushed to go somewhere? Have something on your mind? Were you more calm after the second workout?

    no differnces, stress is an everyday problem. With the workout, im sure theres an anti anxiety factor in there, but the exercise does cause a rebound flush in that during the workout i can be pale, even though everyone i sflushed, but resting 2 hour slater on day 1 a horrific flush which is related to the workout...its to weird

    What was the difference between your two workouts? I notice I usualy get very flush on days when I do bench press, ssquats, or cardio. Not so red when doing shoulders, arms, back or abs. Maybe that could be the diference?

    I can relate to this totally. I get it all the time. One day your rosacea will be really bad, when you seem to be doing everything right. Next day you'll do nothing different but rosacea will be fine.

    The only think I can think is that its delayed effects - maybe something you did a day or two ago is responsible. Its also possible that its something to do with natural hormonal fluctuations (something I know nothing about!).

    Be interested to hear an explanation to this one too.

    I flush from abs because of the head movement, and find that my flushing tends to be intensity related rather than exercise-specific. In other words, I will flush if I do ANY muscles to failure.
    Double negatives are a big no-no.
