Understanding the triggers for facial flushing gives us the opportunity to manage the symptoms, and the possibility to treat the cause.

- Foods: spicy foods, high histamine foods (histamine intolerance can be a cause of chronic flushing - check our article covering green tea and histamine intolerance.
- Mast cell activation disorder
- Hormonal changes/imbalances
- Excessive sun exposure
