Does your body feel very prickly at times in menopause?

Yes, prickly skin is a common symptom. It is called 'formication', as it is likened to ants crawling up the inside of your skin! Herbs such as Dandelion or Boldocynara may be of help, and do make sure that you are drinking plenty of water, as dehydration can make symptoms worse. Stress can also be a contributory factor, so if you are feeling stressed or anxious then you could add in a stress remedy such as Avena sativa, Passion flower.
