Best Soap for Prickly Heat.jpg

What is Prickly Heat?

Prickly Heat - more commonly known as a heat rash, is when sweat becomes trapped under the skin.

When the body requires to constantly produce sweat to keep it cool, it can cause the sweat glands to overload.

Sweat ducts then become clogged - with sweat trapped in deep layers of the skin, irritation occurs, producing an itchy rash.

Hence it is more likely to happen if you live in hot and humid areas.

It can happen to both adults and children.

Since kids’ sweat glands are still developing, they are more susceptible to Prickly Heat.

The red bumps are uncomfortable and itchy - generally it is not necessary to visit a doctor.

Most common areas for prickly heat to appear are

Neck

Shoulders

Chest

Areas where clothes rub your skin

Folds of skin

Typically, there’s no need to go to a doctor - but if Prickly Heat persist or the rash gets infected, seek medication as soon as possible.
