Blushing is the most peculiar andthe most human of all expressions.-Charles DarwinFor most of us, blushing when we're embarrassed or anxious is a common occurrence. But for those who suffer from more frequent or intense blushing, also known as pathological blushing, this abnormal facial reddening can become physically and psychologically tormenting.Noted psychiatrist Enrique Jadresic, MD, offers hope for those who experience this condition with this ground-breaking work. He examines blushing from the dual perspective of the healer and the healed, offering inspiring testimonies of patients who sought medical help and successfully overcame their pathological blushing. Backed by scientific fact, Jadresic explores the delicate balance of human emotion and how it affects our physical responses. In addition, Jadresic discusses options for treatment, including drug therapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, and even surgery. Frank, compassionate, and informative, When Blushing Hurts offers solid information, help, and hope to those who suffer from blushing.

Enrique Jadresic, MD, is associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Chile in Santiago.

"Dr. Jadresic's book, which is both meticulous and heartfelt, contributes greatly toward sharing information on and furthering an understanding of a disorder that is medically benign but psychologically tormenting, and orients the physician and the layman on the treatment possibilities offered by medicine today." - Alejandro Goic, MD, president of the Chilean Medical Academy
"The objectivity and delicacy of his style reflect profound wisdom. He introduces and speaks to us of people whom he receives and assists beyond their situation as patients. They are individuals who share their emotions and pieces of their lives and that have found a calm, comforting perspective in Dr. Jadresic's integrity and professional eminence." - Juan Enrique Mezzich, MD, president of the World Psychiatric Association
"While reading When Blushing Hurts, I once again admired Dr. Jadresic's expository talent, his elegant, poetic pen, his thoughtful honesty, and his clinical ability." - Renato Alarcón, MD, Mayo Medical School
"Those who suffer from blushing will find direction here, a way out that meets the most stringent scientific parameters; this book will be of invaluable help to them. It will also be so for others: we emerge from the reading broader, more understanding and generous, more aware. Enrique Jadresic has written a book that is also a poem. He has once again given meaning to the word delicacy." - Raúl Zurita, poet, Chilean National Literature Award
