Hi Kandykirma1 - While I'm not aware of any special deodorant for women having hot flashes, I do know that menopause can result in hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating that's often localized, especially in the armpit area. If you've tried deodorants and antiperspirants, and aren't having success, take a look at our Hyperhidrosis page, and let us know if this sounds like what you're experiencing. The page includes symptom information as well as treatment information.
Take care, Pat
