Could a spritz of rubbing alcohol help with your hot flashes?
Doctors Executive Assitant Terry says she has found her "blizzard in a bottle" and says spraying herself with rubbing alcohol helps her cool down when she's having a hot flash.
But is rubbing alcohol for hot flashes a useful hack or just wack?
While it might cool the skin, The Doctors says this approach to hot flashes is wack and note that the rubbing alcohol can be harsh on the skin.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says there are better options like dressing in layers, using a cool towel, taking hormones, a low dose birth control pill (if you are still having your period), or there is also a low dose antidepressant that is meant for treating hot flashes related to menopause.
Dr. Travis Stork also recommends a simple solution like cool water with moving air to beat the heat.
