    OMG, my face turns BRIGHT red after I workout. I hate it, but I've gotten used to it. I always thought it might have something to do with mild rosacea because my face gets red sometimes when I drink red wine or eat spicy foods, which are also signs of rosacea, but I have never been diagnosed.

      Oh wow- I thought I was the only person in the world with this problem! I'm not in the greatest shape right now, but even when I used to run miles a day, I turn BEET RED any time I get hot. I was so worried about this during the wedding, so I made sure to drink a ton of water and keep a fan around so I could cool myself. People ask me all the time if I'm ok. It even happens at work if I'm hot from being really busy- I turn beet red there too. Just my face, nothing else. Basically any time I workout, get hot, eat spicy food, or drink. Fun times.

        Me too! I'm not in great shape right now either, but I've always been like this and people always ask if I'm ok, I hate it!

          Yeah, I get a red face too after I workout. I always thought it was b/c I dont sweat a lot.

            huh ... that's interesting. i don't sweat a ton either ... less than normal, i'd guess. maybe it has something to do with that?? at least i'm not alone!

              Same exact thing happens to me, I figured the reason why this happens to me is because I dont sweat alot.... so my body somewhat over heats b/c it cant cool down.... I always say I need a new AC unit haha

                I get the same thing - red and splotchy. Plus I sweat like a big ol' hog. No wonder I never got hit on at a gym in my single days.

                    I too am a freak!

                    I get super red in the face and I swear like a pig in heat. (Okay I have no idea what a pig in heat sweats like, but it sounded good.)
