Common Questions and Answers about Heat rash treatment for adults


Avatar n tn Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool your skin and prevent sweating. Keep the affected area dry. Dusting powder may be used to increase comfort.
Avatar n tn I read on a google search this can make the rash go away but not sure it. For now, getting rid of the rash would be good enough for me. Something to note is that the rash did expand a very short bit down my thigh but for the past 5 months or so it hasn't expanded rather stay the same. It also appears to almost rub off when I try off with a towel or apply alcohol to it with a dry rag. Both patchs are around 4 inches long and wide.
Avatar m tn Hello, Without examination, I cannot confirm a diagnosis but it can be contact dermatitis, sweat dermatitis, heat rash or tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines.

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 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.
Avatar m tn Hi, this type of oral sex is low risk in active adults and with children, i cant see any connection with your friend and your present day red mark for contracting any std from that experience as you were both children and not exposed to the world of sexual promiscuity as are many adults.. Your rash in the summer is most likely just a summer prickly heat rash. If your overly worried about this, the only test that might be recommended is a herpes test just to confirm your status.
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 n tn I just got back from my Gyno about the rash-like bumps I had on the external part of my vagina. For the most part they seemed to be going away from my vagina, and are now on my inner thigh.
Avatar m tn A heat rash is a yeast rash (prickly heat). Use Desitin. It should clear up quickly.
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.
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 I have been off treatment for over a year and half and this rash drives me nutts.. Hurts like hell...
Avatar f tn I have had the rash since I started treatment (I'm completing week 15 I think). i take 1 benadryl at night, sometimes 2 and use a prescription strength hydrocortozone (2.5%). Stay out of the sun, it makes it worse. Cool showers and tell your doctor before it gets out of control.
Avatar m tn I think probably most of your health issues have to do with the Arizona heat. The rash and your higher body temperature, that's probably from the heat. Use mild soaps with laundry & bathing and rinse well, generally wear clothes that are 100 percent cotton, and use a little baby powder at the neck, to minimize chaffing. A lot of Southwesterners wear a bandana to soak up neck heat and wipe off their brow. But heat alone will sometimes cause a rash.
