Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Your concern is regarding the red rash that you have when experiencing anxiety. There is nothing to worry about as blushing while having anxiety is a normal physiological response. There are no medicines or creams for this but cognitive behavior therapy and deep breathing exercises and deep breathing while experiencing anxiety help a lot. If the symptoms are severe then anti-anxiety drugs, beta blockers, Clonidine and Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) may be used. My sincere advice is to consult a psychiatrist/ psychologist and discuss it with him.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
