Health Tip: Stay Cool to Prevent Heat Rash
And keep skin dry

(HealthDay News) -- Young children may be most susceptible to red, itchy heat rash, but it can strike anyone at any age.

The American Osteopathic Association suggests how to help prevent heat rash:

  • Wear lightweight, loose clothing that helps draw moisture away from skin.
  • When taking a bath or shower, use cool water and soap that doesn't contain dyes or fragrance.
  • During hot weather, stay in the shade or in an air- conditioned place.
  • Make sure your bedroom is well-ventilated and cool.
  • Don't use skin products that contain petroleum or mineral oil, which can block pores.
