Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now in this clip we are going to talk about how to
address the symptoms of male menopause. In particular, when you are going into male menopause,
you can also experience hot flashes and profuse episodic sweating. So, when you're actually
going through those symptoms, what can you do to alleviate it? Well, one thing is to
use ice. Now what I have here are several ways that you could actually reduce the hot
flashes and profuse sweating. One is the old-fashioned way, is of course to get ice. You can make
a little quick ice pack by getting a couple of cubes of ice, putting it into a towel cloth
and then just wrapping it up making a nice little homemade ice pack. And just, the best
thing is to put it onto your neck or your carotid, the both carotid goes bilaterally
up your neck, and that will help decrease your temperature really rapidly. Of course,
you can put it on your forehead or put it anywhere on your body where you are getting
the hot flashes. Now another way that you can do is go buy some of these ice packs that
are ready and keep them nice and frozen or very cold in the freezer area. And here are
several ones you can get. A common one, this is a large ice pack that you can get and it
is for backpack. So if you go out in the hot weather, you can put this in your backpack
and actually have and keep you cool all the time. So this is a nice, big backpack ice
pack. Or you can get these very small ones where you can buy the separate packs of gels
and you put the gels into the freezer and then it's very cold. It can also be hot. You
can use these as hot pads too. Hot gels you can put in the microwave. And then you put
them in this ready made, specially made packs, pockets and you can attach them, because they
come with these Velcro straps to a certain area of your body. So that's very handy. And
here's just a simple little ice pack gel that you can just keep in your freezer and have
it handy all the time. So these are just some of the ways that you can alleviate some of
the symptoms of male menopause.
