I found a cooling pad that is fantastic. It looks like a blue cloth ice pack, but it is self-cooling. I found mine in a medical supply store, but they make a similar one for dogs that is cheaper.

It helps to prevent hot flashes at night. I also have a ceiling fan on all the time. When those donít help, I put small pearl ice packs on the inside of my wrists and back of my neck.

Wearing loose-fitting, cotton pajamas helps, too.

Right now DH is under two blankets and has three dogs snuggled next to him. Iím on top of the covers with ceiling fan on and stand fan on, and air on 68į.
