Home Remedies To Treat Heat Rashes Instantly.

Posted May 18 2010 8:22am
When you have heat rash, the first thing you must do is to cool down your body. Find an air-conditioned room where you can relax while your body cools off.

Take a nice cool bath to help your body cool down. Relax and soak until your body temperature gets back to normal.

After having a shower, do not use towel to wipe yourself dry, as it can irritate the skin. Instead, let your body air-dry.

Apply aloe vera gel two to three times per day, wash the affected areas in between applications.

Apply ice cubes to the affected areas for five to ten minutes at a time. Repeat every four to six hours.
Apply talcum powder or cornstarch. Both work very well as home remedies for heat rash by absorbing any moisture and keeping the skin dry.
Apply sliced cucumbers to the affected area as often as needed for relief.
Stick to natural fabrics, like cotton, and avoid synthetic clothes altogether. At the same time, wear loose-fitting clothes.
If you have developed blisters due to a severe heat rash, do not bandage or cover them. Instead, expose the rash as often as you can to fresh air. This helps the skin to heal more quickly.
Simply apply cooled Chamomile tea bags to the affected area.
Whenever you go out in the sun, try to carry an umbrella with you, to avoid the direct, harsh rays of the sun.
