Common Questions and Answers about Heat rash arms

heat

Recently I got what I think is a heat rash on the insides of my arms. I have tried to keep cool but my job requires that I be outside, where I get sweaty fast. My rash has spread over my arms, little pimply like itchy bumps that get much bigger if I itch, which I haven't done much of. Now it is on my knees and thighs and seems to be spreading even though I am inside with the AC on. I have tried using Caladryl, which makes it less itchy, but it seems to still be spreading.
Hi Cam, sounds like heat rash. Did you sleep with that part of your arm under you? Soaps and cloths detergent contain some strong chemicals especially the perfumes used. These causes prickley heat rashes all the time. If i use a new perfume body cream, i get them on the sides of my legs and arms quite frequent. Try using non perfumed soaps for all your washing needs.
I have a rash and it is on the inner portions of my legs and arms. it is alon on my lower back and upper chest by my neck. I was in the grass a lot the day it started but i took a shower soon after. The next day i was exposed to a lot of heat and it got worse. I tried cortizone, cold compresses(to help the itching) and calamine lotion. None of this helped me. It only got worse. What should i do?
i checked her arms and legs and there are a few bumps that look like pimples but nothing like what is on her chest and forehead.. is this just heat rash? I am just terrified its something else like an allergic reaction to the meds.. if anyone knows or has seen anything like this please let me know so i can ease my mind..
however the areas affected by the rash for me appear to contradict the usual places heat rash occurs in. Any ideas on treatment, and how it can be prevented again?
Hello, During exercise, about 90% of the time, I will develop some sort of heat rash on my arms, the back of my hands, and possibly on my torso, although I'm usually wearing a shirt while exercising and I don't really check. The rash on my arms and hands comprises of small, red spots, and is usually on the underside of my arms (and the back of my hands). Sometimes, I have small, flesh-coloured bumps as well, which are quite itchy.
Hi, What you describe seems like sweat dermatitis or heat rash. You should try to keep the area dry and clean. Try some powder to absorb the sweat. If the symptoms are still persistent, consult your dermatologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done. Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing. Good luck.
I began to itch once I was awake and noticed a large hive/rash on both my inner thighs, inner arms, outer chest(near nipples), and on the inner elbow of one arm.I slept on my right side and on that side(chest/arm wise) the rash seems to be larger. Is this a heat rash? or some kind of allergic reaction? I haven't used any new skin products or new laundry stuff. I've had a hypoallergenic cat for months now. Help?
Hello, These symptoms can be due to heat rash or sweat dermatitis. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort. For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken. I hope it helps.

I have a heat rash that flared up shortly after my daughters birth 5 years ago. She was delivered by c-section, and there were many complications with her birth. (not her, her birth) After she was born, I noticed on my first hike that my arms and torso were covered with itchy bumps. Looks like miliaria (prickly heat rash) It goes away within an hour after exercising. Anytime I heat up, it comes out. And then goes away. I use natural detergents and soaps, have a relatively healthy diet.
Also - I had previously been tanning, which I learned was a bad idea. Can Tetracycline cause you to be more susceptible to getting heat rash? (and will it go away on it's own within anoter couple of weeks or so as the antibiotic is out of my system?) Or is this a more serious problem and I need to see a doctor?
Also all these spots seem to be raised up slightly above the skin and the turn red around the edges when I get hot. I have been told heat rash before, but i thought it was localized to persistently sweaty areas and that it goes away anywhere from like 4-48 hours. Also with sun spots I always thought they went away after a good winter and you lose your tan and start again, besides sunspots definitely aren't supposed to itch, swell, and turn red.
Can the Heat Rash I’m experiencing be a Herpes Outbreak? My first heat rash was last year as I was training to walk a marathon. It started on my Quads, and then my biceps. The itching was terrible and I was able to see a dermatologist, who prescribed Clobex spray. I have since had a few outbreaks since, not as severe, and use the Clobex. This last week, I had a heat rash on my upper left arm while on vacation, which I sprayed.
How are you? Heat rash is also known as prickly heat and miliaria. This is usually seen in warmly dressed babies but it also affects up to a third of adults living in tropical climates or during hot, humid weather. This develops because baby's sweat glands are not yet well developed.Heat rash looks like a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching. It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases.
My boyfriend is caucasion, 26 years old and has frequently been getting rashes up and dowm his entire arms. the rash looks like patches of white and pink spotted on the foremarms up to his shoulders. He has no itching or discomfort but it is happening whenever he says he's in the sun or working up a sweat exercising or working out. Does this sound like any well know rash? is it serious? It looks very weird and I haven't been able to find any pics of something similar to it.
i started getting rashes last winter in my upper arms and then it spread all over my arms.. i have never seen a doctor because i never think that it is any serious condition... but it is almost august and i still have them...
I'm just stressing out about it and was wondering if these symptoms were something I should be stressing about.

In only the last 10 days, my 8yr old son gets a weird looking itchy heat rash that appears when he overheats. It can appear on any part of his body from his face, back, chest, arms, buttocks ... anywhere. To look at (for which I have some very clear photos taken) it looks like small scars or like whip lashes. I am suspecting that he caught something when he was in a wood with his friend. The strange thing it disappears as quickly as it appears in relation to his temperature.
If it is a heat rash anybody have any ideas how to make it go away, especially since south Carolina is reaching record highs this year already 109 degrees.
Sounds more like a heat rash. When you get chicken pox, they start as little red bumps, but quickly fill in with fluid and then pop, creating a scab. VERY itchy too, if you recall when you had them. You would probably know in the next day if it is chicken pox by the change in the spots. As for you, it shouldn't be a problem if you already had the chicken pox.
I just took my 15m to the dr for what sounds to be about the same thing.. She said it was just a prickly heat rash and suggested some rash cream..
