Blushing is a really common problem that affects many people of all ages. It affects both males and females. Going red in the face is a fairly normal physiological response. Many people outgrow it as they mature into adulthood.
However, for some people, it becomes a significant problem that affects their working life, their social life and even their personal life. Chronic blushing is also known as erythrophobia.
How Does Blushing Start?
Blushing is sometimes referred to as “fear of being judged by others”. It can often be traced back to a specific incident in your childhood or teenage years. A typical incident of this nature can be in school. So it might be when a teacher asked you to stand up in front of a class and answer a question. Perhaps you didn’t know the answer. In other cases, the problem can begin as a result of something embarrassing that you saw or witnessed as a young child. The reasons for erythrophobia are very individual.
Negative Consequences Of Blushing
Blushing can be a very limiting force in your life. You may find that you avoid or withdraw from situations where you know you could potentially blush. You might avoid large groups or social situations. Also, you may have untold problems in work situations. For instance, you may feel very awkward when you are called on to speak at a meeting, or presentation. Blushing can also, in extreme cases, cause low self-esteem, negative thought patterns, low self-confidence, and panic attacks.
Effective Treatment For Blushing With Hypnosis And Hypnotherapy
If you suffer from excessive and embarrassing blushing, you may be aware of the incident or incidents that caused the problem to start. Alternatively, you may be completely unaware of what caused it. In the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, we can easily go back and revisit those forgotten or partially forgotten memories that hold the key to why you continue to blush.
