Cause of Blushing and Sweating

Excessive hand, facial or underarm sweating is usually caused by an overactive sympathetic nervous system. This nervous system is also known as the autonomic nervous system as we have no mental control over it.

Over activity of the autonomic nerves also known as the sympathetic nervous system can also cause rapid facial blushing.

The Brain sends nervous impulses through this sympathetic nervous system, which pass to the skin, which can cause excessive sweating.

Facial blushing or a red face occurs when large amounts of histamine is released by the over active  nerves.  This causes the blood vessels to swell in the skin.  This makes the skin look red.
