If the redness on your face forms a butterfly-shaped rash across your nose and cheeks, you might want to get tested for lupus, an autoimmune disease that affects about 1.5 million to 2 million people and causes inflammation in various parts of the body, leading to achiness, low-grade fever, and extreme fatigue.
The fix: Treating the disease with anti-inflammatories, corticosteroids, topical steroids, and/or immune suppressants usually eliminates the rash.
As early as your mid-30s, you may start having symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, which cause facial redness.
The fix: Try putting a cool, damp cloth on your neck. If the flashes are severe, you can also talk to your doctor about treatment options like hormone replacement therapy.
