Dealing with prickly heat or heat rash, naturally.

Prickly Heat , also commonly known as Heat Rash is caused by blocked sweat glands.  Babies and children can also get prickly heat rash in hot weather because their sweat glands are not fully developed.

The tiny white bumps indicative of prickly heat can be found in a number of areas including

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Under breasts
  • Groin
  • Elbow folds
  • Abdomen

 Prickly heat is prevalent in the summer months and particularly in humid climates.

Aggravating Factors
  • High humidity
  • High temperature
  • Sauna’s & steam rooms
  • Fever
  • Sunburn
  • Sweating or hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Tight garments
  • Non-breathable fabrics
  • Perfumes
  • Body oils
  • Fragranced lotions
Treatment
  1. Wash the affected area with a non-soap wash i.e. Pinetarsol Gel.
  2. Rinse with water and repeat as often as needed, after exercise or prolonged heat exposure.
  3. Apply cool packs as a great way to relieve the itchiness, and in more severe cases use of cortisone & anti fungal creams.  Talk to your GP or Pharmacist about these.
  4. Wear light cotton or absorbent fabrics that  aerate the skin especially in the folds of the skin i.e.elbows, knees and groin areas.
