What causes red hot flashes and stinging pain in skin after chemotherapy?
Either long-term side effect of chemo; or hormone related
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. The hot flashes can at your age be attributed to a hormonal fluctuation caused by peri- or pre-menopause. But taking into consideration the fact that you underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which can easily cause symptoms of red and stinging skin along with hot flashes we need to first go through the medications that were administered to better understand what kind of side effects we can expect.
But I would also recommend a check on your hormone levels, and if an abnormality is found, correction will either help suppress the symptoms or help us to rule out one of the possible causes on our list.
I hope you find my response helpful. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
