Evamist contains estradiol, a powerful form of estrogen. It is used by menopausal women to reduce hot flashes. It is available in a spray form and is applied to the forearm between the wrist and elbow.
Women who use Evamist, however, must take special precautions to ensure that the product does not come in contact with children or pets.
Children who rub against an unprotected, treated arm may experience premature puberty and breast enlargement.
Pets who are exposed may develop mammary gland enlargement and vulvar development.
If your pet develops any of these signs please see your pet’s doctor immediately, and advise him if Evamist is used by any women in your household.
See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph.
