Heat rash treatment children

Common Questions and Answers about Heat rash treatment children


Avatar m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be dermatitis skin, contact dermatitis or heat rash. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful apart from steroid creams. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn I have had a heat rash on my neck, beside the jawline now for 14 years. I have been to a few Dr's who have said "Its just a heat rash, nothing you can do about it". My question, can a heat rash last for this long? Its been in the same place and has never spread. Its definately gets worse in the heat, it itches like crazy.
Avatar m tn Is there any sort of preventative treatment for children to make sure they do not suffer from a painful and horrible breakout? According to an article I read the intial breakout is much more severe.Is there a test that can be done to see if my child did infact contract the virus?

Avatar f tn I would guess so with the number of doctors you have visited with your son. Heat rash is something that can happen chronically and happens when the sweat glands under the skin are blocked. Intertrigo is another condition that can present as a rash on buttocks. https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/guide/intertrigo-symptoms-causes-treatment-risk_factors_#1 Does his rash ever dissipate? Since you've seen a derm, you've had psoriasis or eczema ruled out?
Avatar f tn It sounds odd but is very common in children and adults.Hydration is important. The rash is most likely a sudden heat rash..but without proper testing to rule out other more serious conditions it is hard to make an educated guess. Good luck and be well.
Avatar n tn heat rash, contact dermatitis, dry skin, infection or folliculitis. Try to use mild soap and refrain from using strong deodorants. If this is folliculitits or inflammation of the hair follicles, this will resolve on its own after a few days. Warm compress may also help. If it persists, it would be best to have this evaluated by your doctor. Take care and regards.
1027005 tn?1300050172 Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced a rash that starts on their belly and travels up. I was in the doctors office for it and also the hospital for heart problems and they said they don't know what it is. The nurse said it could be a heat rash, I live in Michigan how in the world could I have a heat rash at this time of year? Also, it's getting worse as the days go by it's been a week since I've seen a doctor and they said it would go away when I called yesterday.
Avatar m tn My question is does this sound like a heat rash or a yeast rash??? I am currently returning from vacation and have to come back to two weeks of training for work.
15311409 tn?1439780092 I'm not sure what kind of rash this is, but if it's all over as you describe then it's probably a reaction to something externally. If the rash develops into open pimples or blisters or wounds, they will undoubtedly get infected very quickly, so I would get her to a vet for a full assessment and treatment.
Avatar n tn Symptoms appear to be aggravated with heat and activity. He constantly complaints of not feeling good, has general malaise, fatigue and stays in bed most days. In the past he has had: • [2008-current] Chronic head pain • [2010-current] ADD, dyslexia and dysgraphia.
Avatar n tn They were 2 clusters about quarter sized near the fold of her arm but not in the fold and a penny sized cluster on the left side of her trunk and it looked like a heat rash and as the days went by the cluster got bigger and bigger so I took her to her doctor and he said it looked like some sort of irritation and prescribed her triamcinolone and said it should go away within a week.
Avatar n tn As much as I can tell from the photos, this looks like heat rash or possibly a viral rash. There are plenty of summer viruses besides HIV, though. I suggest that if the rash persists for another 2 weeks, show it to a doctor. Meantime, there isn't any specific treatment you need to do. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn Rash is one of the sx of Riba, so as long as you are taking that, you could have the rash. Just keep that cream handy, and at the first sign of a new break out, put some on.

1732853 tn?1366758928 Triple Tx with Incivek...........................So far, so good! Nausea and fatigue comes and goes. The rash appeared on my elbows, day four. It's spreading pretty fast. So, it looks worse than it feels. I'm using Gold Bond Medicated Cream on the skin rash. I'm using Tucks on the "other" rash. I'm so grateful to everyone for sharing their knowledge on the board. Thank you, Thank you........Thank you!
