red, blotchy neck

Posted , 4 users are following.

Does anybody suffer from a red, blotchy neck when they are anxious or in nervous situations?.I have suffered from this for years and it is making my life hell.My GP prescribed Propanalol years ago which didnt help.I now take ramipril for high blood pressure but this hasn't eased it.

I have tried everything from Bach flower remedies to "green makeup" to no avail.

It has prevented me from getting on in life especially with my career as my confidence is an all time low when it happens.The more people point it out, the worse it gets.

    I am the exact same way. My entire neck gets blotchy and very red. My chest also does and sometimes my face. I am sorry I dont have any remedies but wanted to let you know that you are not alone. I just learned to live with it and roll with the punches.
