Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.

Perimenopause really is a pain, isn't it!

Sweating anywhere on the body (including your nose) is a result of the hot flushes. Your doctor can prescribe antiperspirant to be applied to those areas that give you the most difficulty. It will make you more comfortable in company, although it won't do a single thing for the hot flushes. It just keeps you from having to wipe your face all the time.

Here is the web site that got me through menopause, which I started even earlier than you. I give this link to every woman who presents with menopause symptoms because its suggestions really do help.

Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Best regards,

can any anti perspirant be used like http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/gb/groceries/garnier-mineral-ultra-antiperspirant-deodorant-250ml?langId=44&storeId=10151&krypto=j3nko%2FVKyXoKjamDffJJvp8mDINl3%2B%2F2gI3zkNLyDauYKVrW53NatSPuj%2BIc%2FaB1k968KSNOdbTuzXEVuo2%2Fqzyqgd1w%2FZ4%2FnAw4PXCkQBl91PQwUqBdWqTzO0j7TWkJQR55Lvt4x9tHXBVRlaIdIYqHPAPoMwtliF2KM9WCPmk%3D&ddkey=http%3Agb%2Fgroceries%2Fgarnier-mineral-ultra-antiperspirant-deodorant-250ml

or does it have to be a prescribed one specifically for the nse?

Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 2 months ago.

You can certainly try that one. If it works, it will be cheaper than a prescription. If it doesn't you may need a stronger prescription product.

With this one, you don't want to spray it at your face though; you don't want it in your eyes, which would be very irritating! Instead spray a bit on your finger and apply that to your nose and upper lip.

Warm regards,

Schuyler
