Hands up anyone who didn't know that you could get a rash from menopause.
Menopause and Rashes
Skin rashes can signal an excess of progestin in the body, particularly if the woman is undergoing hormone replacement therapy. An excess of progestin can stimulate the hypothalamus to dry out the skin. These rashes can present in several forms: small bumps on the skin, itchy skin, eczema or red spots.
Remedies for Skin Irritation
Most women can find relief with herbal remedies. Some find relief with an increase in lipsomes, flaxseed oil, vitamin E and vitamin C intake. Others find that cocoa butter and vitamin E oil, applied to the rashes, effectively relieve the irritation. Some find relief with an estrogen-rich cream. Seek medical advice before starting any treatment.
