How to get rid of Heat Rashes?


Basics about heat rash

Heat rash, also known as Miliaria, sweat rash and prickly heat appears in the soaring summer temperatures in the form of small, red itchy rashes and blisters. These are formed when the pores in your sweat gland are blocked by accumulation of dead skin cells or Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria and the sweat gets trapped within.

Heat rash is a commonly observed skin problem in the tropical areas where there is a humid climate due to heat and moisture.  Normally, people of all ages are seen to suffer from heat rashes under such climatic conditions. However, young children and newborns are more prone to heat rashes because their sweat glands are not fully developed.  

Ways to avoid heat rash

The best way to keep away heat rash is to reduce profuse sweating. Too much sweating increases the risk of sweat getting trapped under the skin. So, try to spend the hottest hours of the day in air conditioned interiors. Even if you have to step outdoors, avoid direct exposure to the sun.

Wear loose fitting cotton clothes or other natural fabrics in place of body-hugging synthetic clothes can prevent the popping up of heat blisters. Cotton and polypropylene are good absorbent material and allow air to pass through your body, keeping the skin free from sweat.

Treating heat rashes properly

If you have already got heat rashes, clean them using a mild antibacterial soap. Avoid perfumed soaps, deodorant cleansers and harsh detergents as these irritate the skin further. You could also go for a baking soda bath to reduce the itchiness. Mixing a cup of oatmeal in your bathing water is also effective. Use a clean, soft towel to par dry the area. Apply calamine lotion on the rashes. You could also sprinkle a prickly heat powder.
