Heat rash thighs

Common Questions and Answers about Heat rash thighs


It looks like a very very faint rash, small pink spots. Almost like an ant bite. Like a normal heat rash? they aren't raised and they eventually go away. i think my skin might be dry as well. i thought it might have been from shaving so i avoided that for a week and it didn't change anything. My new job involves a lot of walking all day long. Could that be my problem? I am quite a paranoid person so i am beginning to worry. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hi, This sounds like a heat rash or milaria , though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions. 'Miliaria (miliaria rubra, sweat rash or prickly heat) is a skin disease marked by small and itchy rashes. Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season. ' 'The prevention and treatment of miliaria primarily consists of controlling heat and humidity so that sweating is not stimulated.
Cholinergic urticaria is a subcategory of physical urticaria ( hives) that is a skin rash brought on by a hypersensitive reaction to body heat. Symptoms follow any stimulus to sweat such as exercise (sometimes called exercise-induced urticaria), heat from the sun (which could also indicate solar urticaria), saunas, hot showers. The visible hives (sometimes called heat bumps) appear as a multitude of small 2-3 mm welts typically surrounded by patches of red skin.
I have a rash on both my inner thighs. Red and some with small white puss bubbles in the middle. They are not close to my penis or scrotum but in the middle inside of my upper thighs. Jock itch or herpes? The pictures online of both don't look like what I have.
I get a rash often between my thighs that I believe is heat rash. The pain from the rash comes and goes but my skin has gotten thicker and darkened in that area now. I also have developed small, painless bumps in the area. There are at least 50 on each leg; they are flesh colored to light brown and raised. They are pimple like but when squeezed, nothing comes out (they do bleed a little when squeezed.) I have had these bumps for several months.
It seems after showers especially and sometimes in the evening after being in a doona for a while to warm up i have been getting what looks to be a rash from the top of my thighs to my feet that go really red. As it is cold and I havent had this in the summer I'm wondering why now. I don't use heavy soaps either.
Hello For a week now I'm having a skin rash, redness all over my abdomen, a little on my back and a little on thighs. The rash comes in waves as a result of exposure to heat and sweating. Once I get back home (with air conditioning) the symptoms are relieved significantly. This never happens to me before. Nor did it happen to the other workers who work with me and are exposed to the same conditions (working in the sun, sweating, etc.
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 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?
Keep it dry as possible. It sounds like a heat rash. Put Talcom powder on it if you have any ifnot corn startch sounds weird it helps!
I do and I actually stated to develop a rash, it turned out that it was a heat rash from my body temperature rising and having so much discharge.
I have a heat rash on my inner thighs and back of my legs. I also have 6 tiny painful ichy bumps on the right inside of my vagina. can this be a viginal heat rash or a std?
It started off as a heat rash I think because I had gained a few pounds and decided to go back to the gym and my thighs rubbed together often. It didn't have bumps at first but after a week or so of trying to treat it with powder and baths the dots appeared. This morning the itching was out of control as I was drying off the Lamisil cream so I could head to the dermatologist. I rubbed my thighs pretty bad and then scratched them quite a bit as well.
This could be a heat rash...or a rash from continuous rubbing ( from your legs rubbing together as you walk.) Bad clothing...some contain latex, chemicals, etc that your body is protesting to...can also include detergents etc. Sweat rash is also possible, as are insect bites. Fungal infection/jock itch, soaps, shingles, STDs, ( syphilis, herpes, or warts; cause rashes on the inner thighs in both women and men.
I have a very small rash on both upper thighs just outside the fold of the groin. It is a few small, pink and raised spots. It itched at first, and I have had it for 5 days and it is fading. There were no blisters or anything fluid filled. Both locations are rather symmetrical. My last sexual encounter was protected and over 3 months ago. I seem to have a fair amount of anxiety over this right now and worried about Herpes.
but anyways my testicles are looking to be clearing up in redness but teh white dots are still there and now this red heat rash(?) on my inner thighs. what im asking is what could the white dots be? some kind of blister or? and how could i get rid of them? just continue to take baths and clean well or would i need some kind of cream? Anyother thing that could have caused this all is that i wear jeans to bed cus i stay over at friends and stuff even when im home i wear jeans to bed...
I develope a heat rash on my inner thighs sometimes overnight. It does not itch. It has a burning sensation. Then it goes away the next day. I never know when it will come on.
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.
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..
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.
There are so many things it could be, starting with heat rash because yes you can get it on your legs, so posting a picture or describing it would help. Also, this article might help. http://walking.about.com/od/medhot/a/legrash.
does it look like a lumpy heat rash?
I have rash on the back of my thighs , it seems to get worse when I sweat and heat.
I would not put neosporin on heat rash if it's not infected. You want the area to stay nice and dry, not all gooey, and there's no need for the antibiotics if you don't have open sores. I've never heard of baking soda being any good. Since you're sensitive to perfumes, use some plain old cornstarch on it to keep it dry and from chafing. If it's itchy, a little hydrocortisone might help.
I recently had a garage sale and got heat rash on my chest area from the heat and sweat. It moved from between the breasts to underneith one breast. It has been a couple of months now and I can't seem to get rid of it. I have used all kinds of powders to help dry the area. I've used antibotic ointments because it has become so sore and inflamed. I have also used Caladryl maybe to dry the rash. It does seem to help with the itching, but it still hasn't gone away.
well they could be heat bumps. your thighs could rub together even it could be your jean material..
Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but the symptoms are suggestive of heat rash, contact dermatitis or sweat dermatitis. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash.
If it is a heat rash, the best treatment for heat rash is to provide a cool environment. Keep the affected area dry. Dusting powder may be used to increase comfort. ref:http://www.medicinenet.com/heat_rash/article.
I applied some dermlotion and Goldbound in the mornings. The red pimples morphed into scolded (heat rash) type rash. Now, I've had heat rashes in the past and usually get them between my thighs. It's been three days now, i notice the redness is almost all gone...but i notice a few more spots up around the crown. Any idea what this could be? I've scheduled a doctor's appointment for next week. But would like some piece of mind.
