Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharin your question with the EmpowHER community.

Because you mentioned anti cancer medication, did you look to see what side effects are listed?

It is common, if you are at the premenopausal or menopause age range to experience hot flashes with your skin feeling cool. However, it sounds like your skin temperature is more consistently cold whether you are having a hot flash or not.

Here is some additional information for you to consider:

I hope this helps.

Be well,
