Suffer from Prickly Heat Rash during the summer?

JM-Eco-Cosmetics

Heat rash -- also called prickly heat or miliaria -- is a common condition in which areas of the skin itch intensely and often feel prickly, or sting, due to overheating. Heat rash looks like tiny bumps surrounded by a zone of red skin. It usually occurs on clothed parts of the body, such as the back, abdomen, neck, upper chest, groin or armpits and goes away on its own within a few days. In severe forms, however, heat rash can interfere with the body's heat-regulating mechanism and cause fever, exhaustion, and even death.

Heat rash occurs most often in hot, humid conditions, but you may develop it in cool weather if you are overdressed. It's most common in infants. Active people, newborns in incubators, and bedridden patients with fever also are more likely to get heat rash.
