    Anyone else sometimes get cold cheeks? [But still red]

    Hey all.

    So I've been thinking a lot about the condition recently and one of the main things I've come to realize is that there is a good chance it could be very related to bad blood circulation.

    I often get ice cold hands - particularly when I have some sort of boiling hot facial flush at the same time.
    Doubt it's a coincidence.

    And right now I've been sitting in bed for about an hour and my hands are at a normal temperature but strangely enough my cheeks are extremely cold. Needless to say they're still red and discolored.

    But the thing is, the rest of my face and everywhere else where my skin is it's normal skin color it just a normal temperature.
    Even my normal nose is a normal color and it seems that should surely get cold before anywhere else on the face.

    Just wondering does anybody else get these crazy varying temperatures in their cheeks?

    Hey Darren,

    I have bad circulation as well (feet fall asleep if i sit cross legged too long, hands or feet usually ice- cold) My cheeks are usually pretty warm, unless I'm outside in the winter.

    I don't know if that is helpful.

    This is very obvious. When your hands are cold your face will feel warm. When you hands are warm you won't detect the heat of your face on your hands because they are warmer than your face, so it will feel cold or at most calm. So sometimes we are probably not as warm as we think, just that our hands are sol cold that we think our faces are much warmer.
