Thanks for using the forum.

Prickly heat rash is caused by clogged sweat glands. For relief you could try taking a cool bath with cornstarch, oatmeal, or baking soda added to the water. After soaking, clean the skin with a mild, unscented soap to remove sweat, and bacteria. Rinse completely, and pat dry with a clean towel. You could then try applying a hydrocortisone cream to the affected areas. Try to wear loose fitting, natural fiber clothing (cotton).

I hope this helps.
