Health Tip: Suggestions to Prevent Heat Rash

Health Tip: Suggestions to Prevent Heat Rash

05/26/11

(HealthDay News) -- Heat rash occurs when an infant's pores become blocked, usually during hot, humid weather.

The University of Maryland Medical Center offers these suggestions to help prevent heat rash:

  • Dress baby in clothes that are lightweight and made of cotton.
  • Keep baby in an air-conditioned room during hot weather. Turn on a fan in baby's room when air conditioning isn't available.
  • Skip ointments, creams or powders on baby's skin.
  • Do your best to make sure that baby doesn't get too warm, and that the skin stays dry.
