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:

- Apply a cool compress to the rash.
- Keep affected skin dry.
- Wear loosely-fitting clothing to avoid additional irritation.
