Heya Katie

What you seem to be suffering from is the typical snowball effect of anxiety. The fact that you now think you are going to go red, does in fact make you do so and its more comonly known as psychosomatic conditions. I often use blushing as an example of psychosomatic conditions when I do talks and so on.

There are various therapies you can try to help you reduce and manage not only your cause but your symptoms as well so I've mailed you some possible areas to look at.

Let us know how you get on.

i know what you mean. its not as bad as it used to be, i think im starting to control it ... well until last week that is! once it starts, it seems to go on for days! when i can feel it happening, ill just take deep breaths, and it'll go in like 20 seconds, but when someone comments on my red face, or actually 'asks' why im going red ... then its even worse! i remember last year when i worked in a shop, i had a queue of like 6 customers, and as i was new, kept getting things wrong, so i had that to deal with, then another member of staff asked me a question, and i just went bright red, and then ofcourse she just had to ask 'why have you gone so red??', i just pretended i didnt hear her and looked away, i was mortified!

I identify with you, Katie. It sucks so much. I started blushing a few months ago. It gets really bad in Spanish class. I sit there very tense and worry about, "I'm going to get red." Then I do... If there were some way to accept it for me... It would help a lot.'Cause half the reson I go red is because I'm embarrased that I do get red. I get really panicy and anxious before I get red.

Does anyone know of some good sites about blushing and how to help it happen less?

I found that taking large discreet gulps of air and blowing out slowly can help calm the sensation down, the actual redness is just the end, i am a blusher and i find it's the whole welling up experience that has the most effect and makes you feel more conscious. Of course insincere people mentioning it doesn't help, i try making a joke of it, if you blush make light of it or if someone asks why you are so red come back at them "Why, does it bother you so much?" or "Don't get to close or you might catch it" are two of mine.

I know these are not going to help much but i am a very heavy blusher and i think every trick can help a little, just try and imagine yourself in a different place or situation.

hey, ladies who blush. I think that blushing is GREAT. It show that there are still good girls around with all the horrible things that is going on in the world these days(not saying that all of them are still clean). A sign of beautiful awaremess in a person, showing that their brain is still functioning the right way.

Blushing is very cute :wink: , and there are no shame at all to it. I think that it is a representation of innocent :D

But then again, i have a bit darker skin tone. So i dont know how if feels to blush.

Yeah I'm big blusher myself and I love it when women I know blush also. I think it's great and very cute and endearing. :oops: :oops: :oops:

I fully accept my blushing now and people who know me think it's kind of funny but they really accept me and have said that they think that it's great that I am so unselfconscious.

Hey let's start a group on here called "Blushing is Cool!" :oops: :oops: :oops:
