I recently wanted to ask the question: How does the menthol in shower gel give a cool sensation?
While doing my standard check for already asked questions I found this question: Why does menthol (e.g. peppermint) feel cool to the tongue?. I believe that the ANSWER to that question is the same as the answer to mine, even though the question is different (but clearly related).
My question is: should I still ask my question or should I refrain from doing that?
The reason I'm asking is that although I already know the answer now, others who come looking with the same question as I had might not find the already answered question, because it doesn't ask the same question.
