How To Treat Heat Rash – Naturally
f that ship has sailed and you’re already suffering from heat rash, here are some natural remedies.
- Cool bath or shower Try to cool your body and especially the affected area with cool water in a bath or shower. Stay as long as you can, but at least 20 minutes, until you feel relief and/or see the rash or redness beginning to fade. Try to air dry if possible. Rubbing the rash while drying yourself will only make it worse.
- Baking Soda A 1/4 to 1 cup of baking soda (depending on how much water you use) in the bath will make the bath more effective.
- Aloe Aloe directly from the plant works to cool the skin and moisturize. I snip the tips of my aloe plants and place them in a baggy in the fridge or freezer. Once they are cool, I smear the cold gel on the affected areas and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Reapply as needed when the itchiness comes back until it heals. Topical gel aloe comes in a plastic bottle and can be kept in the fridge indefinitely. Be sure it is pure aloe vera gel with no additives.
- Ice Wrap ice in a clean towel or cloth and place on the rash. The ice will cool the skin and alleviate the burning and itching.
