I am going through menopause and not on HRTs and am experiencing a burning sensation on my chest and arms. There is no redness or bumps just a feeling of "having a horrible sunburn." It is probably due to estrogen loss but wondering if anyone has any ideas. I am taking black cohosh and evening primrose oil.

I have a sunburn like sensation pretty much from the waist up, and worse on the shoulders and arms. I am one year post menopausal from surgery, but had these symtoms , only milder, even before my surgery. It is just worse now post surgery and almost constant for the last year. did you ever find the cause for your symptoms?
