Treatments for Heat rash

Treatments for Heat rash:

Many cases of heat rash go away by themselves with simple treatments, such as wearing loose, cotton clothing, seeking air conditioning, and staying out of the heat.

Ice bags or cool wet compresses may be helpful to help relieve itching. It is generally not advised that people with a heat rash use any powders, creams, or lotions, which can cause further sweating and blockage of sweat pores. However, in severe cases, topical medications, such as corticosteroids, may be prescribed.

Antibiotics may be prescribed to treat secondary bacterial infections of a heat rash (cellulitis). Treatment of the complication of heat exhaustion includes resting in a cool or air conditioned area, rehydration with fluids, and cooling down with a tepid (not cold) bath. Severe heat exhaustion and heatstroke require hospitalization.
