Reddish and Itchy Heat Rashes

by Amelita Nailon

It happened more than a year ago when I happened to sun bathe on a swimming pool the whole day. A week after, a few plain white spots occurred on both of my forearms. I just ignored them at first because the spots did not trouble me except for the consciousness that I have some skin disease at its onset. After that, the spots became bigger and itchy. Months after, the spots grew in number. When exposed to sea breeze, the spots grow bumpy and reddish and the itch is unbearable. When exposed to too much heat of the sun, the same symptoms occur and it disturbs my sleep too. I have applied many different skin creams to my skin already but to no effect. Please help me. Is this one of those prickly heat rashes?

Go to the doctor and ask for Prednisone. Strong medicine, but it worked for me.

Heat Rash and Loose Fitting Clothing

Boxer Shorts to Prevent Heat Rash

Boxer Shorts to Prevent Heat Rash

I am a 15-year-old girl and I am very active throughout the day. For a while now I've had an issue with this exact type of heat rash and this is my first time looking into it. It was infecting my groin/thigh area. I soon noticed it was repulsively because I sweat too much and my underwear would soak all the sweat up. I didn't have a time during the day to change my underwear, so it would end up rubbing against my inner thigh and create this prickly heat rash.

I found my cure and the cure is "wearing loose fitting clothing." I'm a die-hard tomboy and found that if I wear boxers instead of panties I kept cool during the day and this type of rash would not occur. Sadly, now if I don't have any clean boxers and end up wearing panties for one day, it gets a lot worse than it used to. This is one type of cure for those suffering with heat rashes in the groin area.

Non Itchy Heat Rash

by Anonymous

I developed a heat rash not too long ago that showed up on my back after an extremely hot day. I was sitting in a car all day long and sweat a ton. I remember my shirt being wet with sweat. After taking my shirt off when I got home, my wife found one of these heat rashes across my back and the rash was flat with slightly raised larger areas of skin, red in color. They didn't itch or hurt at all.

After a couple hours, the heat rash began to go away. Now, the rash is still visible as a kind of scaley, still-visible rash but not red. The rash is barely there, but every time I take a shower that is too hot or get myself into a situation where I'm sweating really bad, the rash turns red and raises slightly again.

The rash seems to be spreading very slowly and is always in the same spot on my back. It doesn't move around.
