The blood vessels open and then close, leaving you no worse off overall.
As to preventing the flushing, the only way I know is to avoid what triggers it. You might try taking a non-sedating, over-the-counter antihistamine like Claritin for a week or so. I suffer from eczema on my face and about four years ago I developed steroid rosacea.
It may not make a difference, but at least it's wort a try. Since then I have not used steroids and was told by my dermatologist that the steroid rosacea would go away on it's own. One year later the symptoms of the rosacea and blepharitis re-appeared. I mean, up until 16 or so I didn't even get any spots.
Two years later it went away, as well as my blepharitis at the same time. Anyway, having researched on the 'net for a while, I figured it could be rosacea or seb.
Results of a radiolabeled tissue distribution study in rats and a radioligand H1-receptor binding study in guinea pigs showed that desloratadine did not readily cross the blood brain barrier.

I just want people to know that there are some herbs that have potential and hopefully future research will give us some additional clues about natural antihistamine herbs and nutrients. A water extract of a mixture of eight herbs (chamomile, saffron, anise, fennel, caraway, licorice, cardamom and black seed) was tested for its inhibitory effect on histamine released from rat peritoneal mast cells stimulated either by compound 48/80 or be Ig E/anti-Ig E.
In these conditions they work by preventing the actions of histamine, which is a substance produced by the body as part of its natural defences.
It's stored in cells called mast cells, in almost all tissues of the body, and is released when the body reacts to a foreign substance (known as an allergen).
dermatitis, so I went out and bought several products including a 1% hydrocortisone cream, aloe vera gels/washes, Nizoral and Emu Oil.
None of them have really made much a difference, although I haven't used any of the products for more than a week at a time. I was almost convinced i had rosacea, even though i am ASIAN pakistani and not very light skinned,but this summer i noticed another change.
