In case creams doesn't work on your baby's rash try this... Make sure your baby's chin & chest is always dry... free from drool, sweat, and milk/ formula. Also, use baby powder or medicated baby powder if regular powder doesn't work. Base on my experienced with my lil' one this really helped.

My baby has really bad heat rash under his chin and on his chest..is there anything I can do to help clear it up?
Dear New Mom, My children are grown up but I do have a grand child who lives in the home with me. My mother who is deceased now, told me that most rashes thrive on moisture. Try going to your favorite grocery store and buy a box of old fashion corn starch. Smash it with your fingers until it looks like powder and rub it on the babies neck and chin or wherever the rash is located. Use it until the rash disapears. Also if your child is a toddler make sure you keep a baby bib on the baby as much as possible.

Not to throw a spanner in the works but is it definately heat rash? Only ask as my daughter has developed infantile eczema and it started off looking like heat rash, showing up really bad in warm baths it comes and goes with her teething and if she wears wool. The doctor prescribed baby cortizone to get it under control and i now apply an emolliant twice daily.
