Is it normal to have blood shot eyes with a hot flush?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all. I seem to have been in a permanent hot flush for the past few days. I just caught sight of my reflection: usual red blotchy patches from chest to face, but my eyes are blood shot and stinging?? Has this happened to anyone else? Help please! Thanks in advance

    Hi Claire, yes blood shot eyes is also a part of the peri phase. For the stinging eyes use cold water with a towel. Do not try to splash the water into your eyes it could sting even more. Eye drops may also help but they also stung my eyes.
