Hi sue,
I have the same problem, I have hot flushes all the time but in the summer it permanent. It drives me crazy espically if you have to go out.

I know it's not much help but,it might help a bit after showering i wrap in a towel and lay on the bed till I dry, then I use vagisil power on all creases or I get sore from sweating.

Then wear the loosest clothes I can find, I have a couple of really loose kaftans and they are brilliant in the hot weather. Then I have a small spray bottle and use that on my face and put me hair up.

Thats the best tips I have and it helps me. Hope it helps you to.

Gentle hugs niki xx

I know what you mean Adele, I was always out trying to catch some rays and I was as brown as a berry, as I have psoriasis it was good for my skin.

But since having fibro I can't stand the sun, I get so hot and bothered and take 3 lots of med's that say avoid sun light and the last time I did sit out but under the shade of a tree on a family day out I got 3 degree burns on my legs.

Hi
Its the same in my house to with us both having fibro the OH sweats have been really bad, we have a ceiling fan in the lounge which helps to keep us cool, we have bed side fans to keep us cool of a night.

To help keep the sweat off the face wearing a bandana helps.
another thing i have used is an ice block, they are for lunch boxes, i wrap it in a tea towel and put it on my forehead or back of neck, or you could use ice cubes.

Wear loose clothes or dresses and shower of an evening when its cooler. :wine:
