Hot Ear Flashes? LOL

Hey Sisters,
I,m doing really well on the Menest 1.25 (Premarin was a [email protected] nightmare). The only thing is this week my ears will turn red and feel hot to the touch for about 15 min then it will go away. Is this some kind of flash or is alot of people talkin bad about me and my ears are burning? LOL Seriously it sort of makes my cheeks hot too. Has anyone have this happen???

Hot Ear Flashes? LOL

Hi, I get Hot Ear Flashes when my Blood Pressure goes up and that is related to the estrogen patch wearing out. It is really freaky. My right ear get bright red and is soooo hot and then the rest of my head starts to hurt. Just had this happen yesterday and my BP was 140/96 which is high compared to my regular of 120/70 .

My Dr said that low levels of estrogen cause migraines which cause elevated BP.

Good luck and i hope you find an answer for me too

Ear flashes

I get hot earflashes too but mine are related to alergies and rosacea. It usually happens when I eat certain foods that cause me to flush. Hot foods like coffee & tea especially if they contain caffene. Tomatoes. Brocoli & Cauliflower. Spicy foods especially if they have a tomatoe base like BBQ sauce. Also extreeme differences in temps., i.e, comming in from the cold to an overheated room. Being extremely tired or ill will also make my ears flush. I am a little fair skinned and have been told that fair skinned people do tend to flush or flash a little more often. I always know when I am having an earflash because along with turning red my ears also itch a little bit as it begins. Also, I have noticed that I generally flush durring exercise. My flushing has led to rosacea, which is treatable skin disorder. It is very common in menopausal women. If you notice that you are beginning to get what looks like acne on your face or areas that you are flushing, talk to your doctor about it, it could be rosacea. There is a rosacea society. They have a web page, I think it's rosacea or close to it. I hope this helps! Also, flushing can be as a result of high blood pressure so please be careful!

I think the ear flashes are your way of having a hot flash. I had that and in my neck too. It would rise up the back of my neck to my ears. Hot Flash!!! that is what my mother told me anyhow. She laughed at me and said "welcome to menopause"

me too!

I've had this ever since my surgery. It starts in my left ear, and
then my whole face will be hot and red. The new doctor I am
going to said this is due to rosacea. I apply a prescription
ointment on my face daily. It is not as intense as it used to be.

I think that a lot of women do get rosacea when they begin to go through menopause. Rosacea is actually caused my flushing (the tiny capilaries and blood vessels in you skin filling very quickly with blood) The reason women get rosacea at menopause is because of the flushing caused by hot flashes. There are lots of medications that can control the symptoms of rosacea, (which are generally red patches, itchy bumps, pustules and sometimes skin growths). Medication can even put it into remission so to speak, but the best cure for it is to find out what is making you flush in the first place and to treat it. HRT is a common answer for some women. Some women don't like to take hormones so they just treat the symptoms, usually with an ointment applied a couple of times a day. My dr. also told me that this is probably a heriditary or inherited condition.
