Thread: constant heat rashes

    constant heat rashes

    I had surgery in August 2015 to remove my bladder and have a total hysterectomy, including removal of my ovaries. Ever since I was taken off of my HRT due to a blood clot in my lung, I have been experiencing night sweats badly. These night sweats have been causing bad heat rashes over my butt and has also caused skin breakdown once. Due to having 2 ostomy bags on my abdomen, its very uncomfortable for me to sleep on my sides now, so I have no choice but to sleep on my back all night long. I sleep with cotton pajamas and cotton sheets on my bed, so I know that this stuff breathes.

    Does anyone have any tips on how I can remedy this problem?

    I have read about some women using Evening Primrose Oil to avoid heat flashes ... I wonder if that's something to try? What kind of mattress are you on - hopefully air? I also find flannel sheets to be better for paralyzed skin.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Are you currently on anticoagulant medication? If so, be sure to check with your provider or pharmacist before taking any herbal remedies for hot flashes, as some can interact with drugs such as Coumadin (warfarin).

    There are actually special nightgowns and sheets which have been designed to wick away heat and moisture for women who have a lot of problems with night sweats and hot flashes. Here are a couple sources:

    Also, here is an article comparing the different products:

    If you are having problems developing yeast type infections in skin folds such as under breasts, etc. you may also want to look into the skin care product call InterDry. You use a piece of this and tuck it into the fold. It is silver impregnated, so it makes the fabric antibacterial and antifungal, and the fabric also wicks the moisture away.
