Heat Rash in Babies

Summer is not the best season for your skin. The high temperatures not only sap energy, but the most prevalent skin problem faced during the summer is prickly heat or heat rash. Babies' skin is always highly sensitive because their bodies are still developing, Heat rashes are extremely frequent among infants and toddlers. Heat rashes can occur in older children and adults as well. Heat rashes do not represent an immediate or long-term risk to your child, and the rash will not leave scars.

The red pimples are most visible where clothes frequently touch the skin, such as the back, neck, armpits, and thighs. Prickly heat occurs when sweat glands generate excessive sweating throughout the summer, clogging the glands. Because their sweat glands are not fully matured, children, particularly infants and toddlers, are more susceptible to these rashes in the summer.

Signs on an infection may include the following:

The area of the rash becomes red, swollen, or warm to the touch.

Your child may complain of pain or appear to be in pain.

Red streaks coming from the rash area.

Red bumps full of pus.

Signs of infection, including swollen lymph nodes.
