Not enough descripti: We can not advice as to the diagnosis, why you think it is heat rash, but if you are sure and medicated powder worked before you may try it again.Heat rashes are usually self limited and do not need any treatment.All you need is to make surethere is plenty of air ciirculation around the skin, wear light loose fitting clothes preferabely cotton which will help your skin breathe.And stay cool.
