Action point


A common side effect of Viagra is flushing. Different from blushing (where the face turns slightly red), flushing looks more like a rash and may cover the whole body.

Usually transient, flushing can be made worse by spicy foods and alcohol. Apply a cool cloth to your face to help reduce the redness within minutes.
