    No I feel you, you're definitely not alone, the exact same thing happens to me. whenever I get anxious, or really anytime my heart beat gets faster for any reason my whole chest, face, and neck gets blotchy and red. its actually not too uncommon, it's similar to what happens when you blush, it's just for some people it happens on other parts of the body other than the face. it's nothing serious or wrong with you, it just can be a bit embarrassing sometimes

    My sister actually has this happen. There are other people in my family with this problem too and the weird thing is that they are all females. None of the guys deal with it. I actually have rosy red cheeks instead of a red chest. But all it is is that the skin is more sensitive in that area which means it has flare ups real easy. Anything that causes an increase in blood flow will cause the redness to get worse and the heat you feel is from the blood. anger, anxiety, exercise any of those things can cause the redness.
