why do my ears get so red and blood presure goes up a little,first 1 ear and times it goes away but when the 2 ears get red,it stay a while, i but ice to cool it down ,but still does not goes away,and i get really scard

Answer:

You are special.  Not everyone gets red ears with their hot flashes, but a few women do.  Some experience just one red ear, some both.  For some it is very uncomfortable and they feel better applying something cold to the ear.  To avoid this phenomenon, be sure you are not sitting or working under a bright light.
