Accidental Exposure of Children and Pets to Evamist Hormone Spray


FDA is warning people about harmful effects in children and pets if they unintentionally come in contact with Evamist (estradiol transdermal spray), a topical hormone treatment used to relieve hot flashes in post-menopausal women. This can lead to premature puberty in girls and breast enlargement in boys. Similar effects have been observed in exposed pets.
