How do I prevent a heat rush? – by: Moomie Moderator

Katane Thabang Hi #johnsonsbabyhealth what can I use on my year old daughter to prevent her from heat rash?

Carol Hlela Hi Katane, i dont expect a heat rash in a 1 year old, please describe the rash…its likely something else. If you mean a preventative measure, but there is no rash now…only be careful with what products you for washing and moisturizing, use those that are specifically made for baby skin, that should suffice.

Molebogeng Lebo Mashego Hi Dr. Carol Hlela. How long does it take for a heat rash to go away? #johnsonsbabyhealth

Carol Hlela 11 months is way to late for that to be still a heat rash..i think its something else. Heat rashes present in the first 4 weeks of life and subside soon after.

Molebogeng Lebo Mashego How can I treat heat rash on my 11Month old son? it’s on the face and neck.

Carol Hlela how does it look like Molebogeng? It may be induced by what you wash with or moisturise with? What are you using for both?

Molebogeng Lebo Mashego It looks like tiny bumps surrounded by red skin. I use Pure Soap.

Carol Hlela Nicole, its likely a skin condition we call: Pityriasis Alba, which a form of eczema that gets worsened by the sun. Its best to treat with 1% hydrocortisone, but then add a suncreen to his regime.
