My poor little baby has a heat rash on her face, neck and chest. We have a doctors appt. on Jan 11 but I don't want to wait till then to find out what to do for it. Mommies do you have any suggestions? I have been giving her lukewarm baths and it seems to help a bit but in a few hours her face/neck/chest is all red again.



Thanks.

Guess what? my mom ended up telling me to use cornstarch and by the end of the first day. I was a whole lot better. It's been about 3 days now and it's practically gone!!!

make sure there not dressed to warm! my sure they get a enough cool air! it the your house is warm enough then i would let the baby go just diaper! it seem to help my boys when i do that during the summer! that really the only time they get it. are you sure it a heat rash! i know my boys have sens. skin! if i use a lundry der. that is not as they would clear of perfumes! i buy ALL small and mighty! it well say on the bottle free clear! cause a hit rash can look at alot like a skin rash sometimes! hope that helps some!
