The FDA recently released this important information and I wanted to share that this got posted in order to keep your pets and children safe. Keep in mind that these are reports and we can all heed those warnings in order to be safer for our children and pets. If you do use this drug, watch your pets licking as that can cause a chain reaction and the symptoms listed below.

Evamist: Keep Children and Pets Away
Children and pets should not come in contact with Evamist on the skin. Evamist is a drug for women that is sprayed on the inside of the forearm between the elbow and wrist to reduce hot flashes during menopause.
FDA has received reports of side effects in children who were unintentionally exposed to Evamist. Side effects include:
1. nipple swelling and breast development in girls
2. breast enlargement in boys
3. FDA has also received reports of unintentional exposure in pets, which may show signs of mammary/nipple enlargement and vulvar swelling.
