I had a cold recently and also at the change in life but during my cold I had to change my clothes nearly 30 times and that was just in the day time. Also changed lots in the night. It's ridiculous. The cold weather doesn't help a bit and I wish people wouldn't refer to them as hot flushes because I'm not flushing and I'm not hot. I have now started HRT patches, been on them a few days, but still changing clothes on average 9 or 10 times a day and several times a night . Maybe they patches just not kicked in yet. The warmer the weather the better I feel and the less I sweat.
