HEAT RASH

Best Health - - THE BUSY WOMAN’S GUIDE TO SUMMER -

“Heat rash refers to var­i­ous ail­ments at­trib­uted to heat, the sun and pro­fuse sweat­ing,” says Dr. Richer. One com­mon form, mil­iaria rubra, is an in­flam­ma­tion of sweat ducts and man­i­fests as itchy red bumps. “It can oc­cur af­ter some­one sweats far more than usual. It is a self-re­solv­ing con­di­tion, but a cool shower and cool com­presses can al­le­vi­ate the symp­toms.”
