I have the hot, red face thing sometimes too. I haven't investigated it properly, if it gets more frequent I probably will. But I have googled a bit, and one possibility is rosacea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosacea
This article mentions the same areas that you do, and some of the additional symptoms it talks about could be a bit eczema-like. Sounds like a possibility?
