      OK, let's see:

      The post exercise facial color is 1) clearly related to local skin blood
      flow (and perhaps highly localized effects are present given that some get
      a blotchy red-skinned reaction after exercise), 2) probably impacted by
      sympathetic stimulation and 3) skin/environmental temperature.

      Other conditions besides exercise that cause some people to become red in
      the face are 1) hot conditions 2) alcohol 3) spicy foods. If you react to
      one of these triggers with reddening of the face, do you also react to the
      others in a similar way. Is their a common mechanism?

      Do the flushers tend to be fair skinned and of Celtic ancestry? What
      about the exercisers who become white in the face after exercise?

      Triggers for Rosacea include hot conditions, alcohol and spicy foods. The blotchy appearance is common in this condition. Ian Shrier
