Help burning, prickly skin.

Is there anyone else who is experiencing this.
I have this feeling on my arms and legs. It is like I am wearing wool. It burns and other times it is just a prickly feeling. I have hot spots on arms and chest and legs. This comes and goes, and sometimes it will last all day. I have allot of hot flashes also.
Does anyone have this and can someone tell me what I can do for this.

Re: Help burning, prickly skin.

I read something the other night that said the prickly hot skin thing was related to hot flashes ... both are signs of estrogen levels dropping. If lotion or cortisone cream doesn't relieve it then estrogen is the only thing. You'll have to talk to your dr. about that.

Good luck!

Re: Help burning, prickly skin.

I had burning arms and also had hot burning feet with the prickly feeling (kind of like pins & needles but on one foot only). Use cold compresses and put them where you're feel hot. IMO, it must be some kind of inflammation so why not use something to cool it down! I often got them and right after I could get a hot flash - think there's a connection. It will go away so don't worry about it - I know, it's a weird thing to have and the burning does hurt!
