Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredA hot flush, commonly known as a hot flash, is one symptom of menopause that causes your core temperature to rise very quickly. In an effort to cool you down, the body dilates blood vessels in the skin and you begin to sweat. Then you get cold when the air hits your wet skin and your core body temperature is reduced. Some women get 10 or more hot flashes a day with some lasting up to five minutes.
