Living With Heat Rash

I had a question the other day about heat rash.

Heat rash is a red or pink rash usually found on body areas covered by clothing.
It can develop when the sweat ducts become blocked and swell and often leads to discomfort and itching.
Heat rash is most common in babies, but it may affect adults in hot, humid climates.
In babies, heat rash can be caused by well-meaning parents who dress their baby too warmly, but it can happen to any baby in very hot weather.
A baby should be dressed as an adult would be to be comfortable at the same temperature and activity level.
Babies’ hands and feet may feel cool to your touch but it doesn’t mean they need to be dressed too warmly in hot weather.
Heat rash looks like dots or tiny pimples.
In young children, heat rash can appear on the head, neck, and shoulders.

Most heat rashes heal on their own.

The following steps can help relieve symptoms.

>Start by removing or loosening clothing and move to a cool, shady spot.

>Let the skin air-dry instead of using towels.

>Avoid ointments because they can irritate the skin.

The following tips can help prevent future episodes of the rash:

>Dress your child in as few clothes as possible during hot weather.

>Keep the skin cool and dry.

>Keep the sleeping area cool.

After the rash is gone, gradually expose your child to warmer temperatures so his or her skin can acclimate.

To deal with heat rash it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily as it hydrates body and brain cells, thins mucus, and flushes toxins.
*Increase Omega3/omega6 essential fats.
*Keep a balanced pH.
*Use Enfuselle and/or ShakleeBaby skin care products.
*Tea Tree Oil is an antibacterial topical treatment.
*Epsom salts baths may be beneficial/soothing.
*Consider liver and/or colon cleanses, fasting, and/or juicing.
*Review my post on candida.
*Consider aloe vera (gel from inside fresh leaves is best).
*Eliminate toxic personal care, laundry and cleaning products.
*Eliminate personal care products that upset skin’s natural pH.
*Quit smoking.
*Decrease excessive sun exposure.
*Decrease exposure to chlorinated shower/bath water, pools and hot tubs.
*Improve your digestion and elimination processes.
