Chronic blusher

Facial blushing ruining skin condition

Recommended Posts

I have been suffering from chronic since I was 8 years old. The first memory I have of it is when I had to hold an object up infront of my class at school. It was a special day at school and so the teacher was taking photos of us. And of course because everyone was looking at me I went bright red in the face, not a cute little blush, a full blown tomato, red in the face. Everyone laughed at me. But what made this worse is that the teacher printed off everyone's photos and handed them around the class so that everyone could write a caption for them on the back. When I got it back the teacher had obviously tried to scratch off some of the nasty comments but I could still read them. 

For a while the blushing was less servire. But at the age of 13 it started up again. If my friends would hug me I would go bright red. I'm on my first try at combating the redness.

At the moment I am using green concealer on my face everyday underneath my power. I never used to wear makeup as I am not self contious about my appearance and I am not shy. But because I've been wearing it every single day for almost a year now, my skin is spotty and in really bad condition. This isn't helped by the fact that I'm a 16 year old girl with hormones making spots worse. And so my self confidence is really decreasing.


My sister and my best friend are both so good about it. I have never spoken to them about it but they ignore my blushing, don't point it out and move the attention away from me when they see it's happening. It's an unspoken agreement. 

Anyways I was just wondering what you guys suggest is the best treatment or way to go about it. I'm scared to try the 'exposing' method but if it has worked for you then maybe I should try?

aw I'm sorry, that sounds extremely hard. your sister and best friend sound really lovely tho, most people like to tease someone who turns red. I am also scared to try the exposing method, people always say you should go out of your comfort zone however, if I have a bad blushing experience it just knocks my confidence further. Have you tried taking any medication or tried out any kind of therapy?
