Prickly Heat in babies

Written by Mystic on Saturday, May 10, 2008

Prickly heat
During hot humid weather the pores of a baby's skin can become blocked preventing the sweat from evaporating. Rashes can then appear on the neck, in the creases behind the knees, inside the elbows, under the arms, the groin and on the back and chest.

To prevent:

  • Apply an anti-rash baby product at nappy change time.
  • Avoid over-dressing or over-heating your baby.

To treat:
  • A soothing bath followed by a suitable anti-rash baby product
