  • 1. Natural Remedies For Severe Diaper Rash Add a little water to some cornstarch and prepare a loose paste. Apply this paste on the areas of the body plagued with prickly rash and allow it to work on the rash for the next half an hour. The paste would have dried by then, after which you should take a cold water bath and gently wash the paste away. As mentioned before, babies and children are most prone to developing a heat rash, due to their poorly developed sweat glands. Parents usually wrap up their babies in a bundle to keep them warm and to protect them from insects like mosquitoes, resulting into excessive sweating and heat rashes. In babies, it may also occur due to very tight clothing and diapering. Follow the tips mentioned below to treat the condition in babies. Rashes can appear on the skin if the skin is exposed to environmental irritants or allergens. Inflammation of the skin could cause itching, redness, swelling or a burning sensation. Eczema, irritant contact dermatitis and hives are inflammatory skin conditions that make the skin itchy, blotchy and bumpy. Red bumps are symptomatic of hives. Such bumps could stay on your skin from minutes to hours.
  • 2. #9755; Avoid oil-based ointments, as they keep the skin warm and moist which will only worsen the condition. Also, avoid massaging him/her with oil, if he/she is suffering from prickly heat. One should remember that it is essential to undertake immediate treatment in order to get rid of this condition soon, as delaying can lead to chronic cases. Therefore, it is recommended to consult a doctor if you suffer from severe rash. Take care! The infection of yeast (a fungus) generally occurs in areas/body parts where favorable conditions (moisture) are available. In toddlers, the mouth and genital areas are common areas of yeast infection. Yeasts are also found in digestive system and externally on the skin. The Penaten Cream is an ideal place for yeast infection in toddlers. It is seen that children with yeast infection in the mouth are also infected in the genital area. This is because the yeast travels in the body through natural progression. Prickly heat occurs mainly in those areas where friction from clothing is the highest. The best thing is that prickly heat is a temporary condition and will heal in a few days time. Babies are more prone to be affected by it, as their sweat glands are not fully developed. Heat rash in babies can make the baby very irritable. Frequent changing of diapers and allowing them to not wear a diaper for some time also helps. Since children have very sensitive skin, it is wise not to try out any of your treatments on them. Consult the doctor and pay heed to his advice. Rashes that are caused due to exposure to an allergen can be treated with antihistamines, medicated emollients or steroids. Avoidance of the allergen or the irritant is the best way to prevent this skin problem. If you do observe patches of inflamed skin, stop yourself from scratching over the affected area. If the symptoms are severe, consult a dermatologist soon.
