Individuals with Severe Facial Blushing characteristically experience a glowing red face that occurs more frequently and last longer than normal blushing. The blushing is intense, constant and lasts for a prolonged period of time. Prior to onset, patients usually experience intense facial heat. The face and neck will usually glow a bright red color. The glow may start over the cheeks, radiate onto the forehead, neck and cover the ears. Individuals with facial blushing may respond with exaggerated blushing to a multitude of stimuli. In extreme cases, those affected with severe Facial Blushing may develop an anxiety condition called Social Phobia. The condition, stemming from hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, often causes the skin to appear greasy. It may occur alone or in combination with facial sweating.
