What causes hot flashes after every meal?

I saw my Dr yesterday and told her of my "hot flashes" after every meal. She said that this was a vascular condition related to rosacea. I forgot to ask her the name of this condition so I could look up more information. Do you have an idea what this diagnosis would be?

Hello, my name is Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi. I understand your concern.
Your symptoms seems to be related to a condition called rosacea.
There are many reasons that cause rosacea.
It can be genetic,also a damage of the blood vessels.
Some advices that I can give to you are:
-Use mirvaso, a gel that tightens blood vessels in the skin to get rid of some of your redness.
-use sunscreen
-avoid hot and cold temperatures
Hope my answer was helpful, if you have any other questions I'll be glad to help, thanks!

Why would I have HOT FLASHES say quite a few years after I should be done with those? Like I m 77. Does the body heating up periodically mean that I may have something else going on? I m not a sickly person at all...not many colds, not flu, no flu shots either, No pain anywhere?? I do have 4 teeth implants that are 2 years old..I can feel that they are there, could I be developing some adverse reaction to the metal..titainiam(sp) ..I hope not because I have a new knee Titainiam, put in April 25th 2017. It has healed quite nicely, no more pain... So that s my story.. would like to know about the sweats I m getting. K. Cline

Everytime I eat something, whether this be a few cucumber slices or a full meal, I get hot flashes and nauseous. It will build up until evening when I have ended up vomiting basically anything I ate that day. I am 39 with type 2 diabetic but my blood sugars have been fine. I don t eat gluten so it s not a reaction to that. What could be causing this?

Hi, I have been diagnosed with rosacea 2yrs ago nothing worked. Scalp got so itchy and eyelashes and eyelids. Noticed rosacea linked to dermodix mites and that you need to put an antibacterial cream on ( metronidazole works) and tea tree products for hair, body and face. What would you prescribe me as I m going crazy with the itching, burning and need to boost my immune system up to.
