Prickly Heat

Tips to avoid prickly heat or sweat rash:

Avoid using waterproof sunscreens or ones which contain alcohol, Methylisothiazolinone, mineral oils or petrochemicals.

Use a cream or lotion rather than a sunscreen which you spray on as the spray on types usually contain alcohol.

Take a antihistamine tablet daily – start a week before your holiday and take daily during your holiday.

Avoid using perfume and highly fragranced products

Wear loose fitting cotton clothing

Shower regularly in cool water
