Health Tip: Cooling a Heat Rash

-- Heat rash describes the bumpy, itchy skin that develops during hot and humid weather.

To tame the problem, the American Academy of Family Physicians advises:

  • Stay indoors when the weather is hot and humid. Run air conditioning or fans to help you stay cool.
  • Apply a cool compress to the rash.
  • Keep affected skin dry.
  • Wear loosely-fitting clothing to avoid additional irritation.
