I have multiple medical conditions and take many medication. I have recently become very flushed on my cheeks and chin whereas before I was always pale. people are commenting on my very red face. The only new medication I have started is Metamucil. Could this be the cause? I am a 67 year old female and no longer meno pausal
This drug is a fiber supplement and flushing is not a side effect of this medication. Perhaps you have rosacea. I suggest you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen, throughout the day. At night I suggest you to use Metronidazole 1% cream/gel.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
