In brief: Using menthol drops?

Menthol is in a lot of OTC cold preps.
If you are using one you may have a sensation of "coolness" even though the temperature is normal. Think of the cigarettes with filters that were advertised as giving you a "cool" (though not a hip sensation ) when you were smoking them.
