Fran - what you described sounds like what would happen to me when I was taking Niacin for lowering cholesterol. Had to stop it altogether..... skin got bright red, stung and burned, as you say, unbelievably,and felt like my skin was going to peel right off my body. It was also hot to the touch. As I was building the dose, it affected only my face at first, but soon progressed and lasted nearly 30 min. at the end, with the redness everywhere. My hot flashses were never like that.
