Prickly Heat

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 04 May 2022

It needs to improve on its own after a few days. If the breakout doesn't improve after a couple of days or your child has a breakout and you're stressed, see your General practitioner. The symptoms of heat rash include: small red spots; an itchy, prickly feeling; inflammation and mild swelling. Among the main points to do to deal with or stop heat breakout is to keep your skin cool. Things you can do to calm the itching or prickly breakout consist of: using something cold, such as a wet cloth or cold pack for no more than 20 minutes; tapping or patting the breakout rather than damaging it; not using scented shower gels or creams. You must see your GP if: the breakout doesn't boost after a couple of days; your infant has a rash and you're worried.
