“I want to instill hope among those readers who suffer from blushing. For the non blusher, I want him/her to become more understanding and empathic.”

Facial blushing, according to author Enrique Jadresic, MD, is a universal human experience found in all cultures. Jadresic observes that people who blush do not share their feeling of embarrassment with others nor they seek help from health professionals fearing that their ailment be trivialized.

In his published book “When Blushing Hurts” (published by iUniverse), it is for the first time in the field of medicine that blushing is acknowledged as a condition that may turn disabling. It also emphasizes that help has become available for those who suffer disabling blushing.

The author himself suffered from blushing and his experiences, and that of his patients, inspired him to write the book. Thus, “Blushing sometimes may turn into a disabling condition, which has remained largely ignored by lay people and even health professionals.”

An excerpt from the book:
"I have been able to help validate the suffering of those misunderstood men and women who, with reason or otherwise, struggle to free themselves from the fire in their cheeks."

“I want to instill hope among those readers who suffer from blushing. For the non blusher, I want him/her to become more understanding and empathic.”
