Skin rash from sweating

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash from sweating

rash

Avatar f tn This is due to relatively high skin temperature, moisture or sweating, and friction from movement of adjacent skin. It is particularly common in those who are overweight. Because of this, bacteria and yeasts which are normally resident on the skin multiply in such environments and may result in further damage to the skin. Tests may be done to determine the cause of intertrigo.

Avatar n tn I also put unscented gel deodorant on my inner thighs sometimes to keep from sweating and chafing and getting a rash.
Avatar m tn 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. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil.
Avatar n tn Hi Based on your description of the rash as an orangey raised rash which seems to be aggravated by sweating, then this may be a case of fungal infection or a dermatitic skin condition. Dermatitis may present similarly. Only that dermatitis may be itchy and the rash may not be as well demarcated. You may continue with the steroid cream and use this only as necessary. It is not advisable that you use this for a long time.

Avatar f tn The main treatment for sweat dermatitis is prevention. The best thing to consider is to prevent that portion of the body from sweating like by wearing light and cotton clothes,taking cool refreshing baths,maintaining the temperature in your homes and cars and avoiding strenuous activities. If however sweat dermatitis occurs,then pls apply mild corticosteroid creams like dermacort or hydrocortisone or calamine lotion on the rashes.
Avatar f tn The reason the rash tends to stay on your arms and legs is from the heat/sweating in those areas. Cotton clothing breathes the best.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be hives, sweat dermatitis or heat rash. 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.
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar f tn the problem is that a few inches above my anus, right at the base of my tailbone, well more like on my tailbone but on the skin, i get a rash. i thought it was just from sweating during the summer bc that's when it first started. my boyfriend put ointment on it and it healed in a few days. i don't think it is from sweating anymore because it happens a week or so before my period begins. it starts out with small bumps...
Avatar m tn It is difficult to comment without examining but it can be eczema, contact dermatitis, rash due to friction as happens when cloth rubs the skin, sweat dermatitis due to excessive sweating. Fungal infections like tinea and dermatitis too cause itchy patches. You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Since the rash is itchy, antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin may help.
Avatar n tn i have itchy skin from child hood.And i often affected severe itching when i go otside on sunny days.On cool climate my skin becomes quite normal.what is the remedy.
Avatar n tn Body folds are prone to inflammatory rashes because of relatively high skin temperature and moisture from insensible water loss and sweating cannot evaporate. Friction from movement of adjacent skin also results in chafing. Bacteria and yeasts which are normally resident on the skin multiply in such environments and may result in further damage to the skin. Diagnosis needs a swab for microscopy and culture of micro-organisms, or a scraping to rule out fungi.
Avatar n tn Every summer after I get a slight tan I get these white little bumps lighter than my current skin color as well as a little rough. It doesn't itch at all. Not sure what I should use or if it is a fungus from the sun, I use sunscreen and can't seem to figure it out. Usually it is just around my stomach and mid back. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be contact dermatitis,rash due to friction rub with clothes, dry skin or xerosis,dermatitis (atopic, contact, allergic), heat rash or excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis. You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid deodorant / cosmetics.
Avatar m tn t breathe which caused the heat rash. If one is burned from the sun or from a tanning bed then the skin tightens up and forms a layer of skin that is closed and the sweat underneath that is trying to come out of the pores that are now blocked or closed, can cause blisters from the sweat trying to get out. Also note that you can get planter's warts from tanning beds also. I had that painful experience and so am very cautious about having the bed properly cleaned before I get in it.
Avatar n tn what would cause a rash under my right breast only, no itch very tender with a very bad smelling thick discharge from my skin .
