Normal to not perspire in hot flash?


Question from Martisia: When I have a hot flash, only my head gets hot and sweaty. I no longer perspire since chemo. Is that normal?
Answers - Charles Loprinzi There's a fairly wide variety of how women experience their hot flashes. This story doesn't surprise me. Nonetheless, I don't have a good explanation for why it happens.
Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. Several of my patients have described exactly the same thing.
