    What helps you not to blush?

    Ive recently told my teacher about my depression. It triggered my anxiety and my blushing came back even worse than it was before. Washing my face reguraly and drinking water doesnt help anymore. Any advice how to reduce blushing to minimum?

    Embarassing

    I hate blushing but it's unfortunately out of my control. I want to appear cool and collected but my blushing betrays me. It's very annoying and I also hate people noticing when I blush.

    Constantly

    I blush ALL THE TIME. Seriously. It's mortifying. I don't even have to be embarrassed or thinking dirty thoughts or anything. Just do something unexpected and watch me turn red. A few days ago someone said hello to me in a grocery store and I turned 7 shades of crimson...

    I Always Wonder If I'm the Only One

    I try to find people who share similar experience with me, and while there is a very slight amount of people who suffer from this, at least I'm not the only one. I still tend to wonder if anyone has it NEARLY as severely as I do. Personally, I don't think so. I blush...

    Blushing Sucks

    Yes, I am always blushing too! I wish I had a way to control it. Seems as much as I try to act like I do not care, it just gets worse. Sometimes I blush for no reason at all, or when I am talking to someone, when the conversation is not even embarrassing. Makes it very hard to...

    people HATING their blushes. I blush all the time; talking to guys, girls, family, friends, shopping, God forbid I answer a question in class. Always. But I've come out of my shell a lot. When I laugh, even a giggle sometimes will set off a blush. My friends call me Big Red (I'm...

    YOU Can Beat Blushing, I Did.

    It's so bad, and it's only getting worse.

    I don't blush when embarrassed but when I don't know what to do in a situation. Rather, the blushing is the source of my embarrassment. Last week I was at a concert and ended up grinding with some guy and when the show was over and the lights came on I didn't know what to do (he...

    Any emotion (how ever slight) tends to make me

    blush...so does fear of blushing. I feel my face start to heat up (worst is when its one ear) and the blush travels down my chest, looking to the outside world like I'm having some sort of allergic reaction. People have asked me if I am allergic to them. Worse was a man on the...
