I woke up with a rash from by left shoulder down to the forearm. i didnt know what it was. so i took a shower and subsided for an hour or two. Now i feel fine and i am not hot or sweaty, so is this a heat rash or something else?
Hi Cam, sounds like heat rash. Did you sleep with that part of your arm under you? Soaps and cloths detergent contain some strong chemicals especially the perfumes used. These causes prickley heat rashes all the time. If i use a new perfume body cream, i get them on the sides of my legs and arms quite frequent. Try using non perfumed soaps for all your washing needs.
