Skin: There are probably a thousand different rashes so without more information or seeing the problem it is unlikely you will get much here on health tap. Skin is probably one of the most difficult things to diagnose online. It is such a visual part of evaluation and treatment as a physician. But, if the rashes are persisting please get in to your family doctor to be seen soon.

Wat is the best treatment for heat rash?

Dr. Raja Abusharr
Family Medicine 21 years experience
Heat Rash Treatment: Since heat rash is essentially a sensitization reaction to "heat" the choice of treatment is to allow the natural healing of the skin and an avoidance of further exacerbations (more sun, scratching, chemicals, etc) common treatments involve mild cortisone or other corticosteroid creams, cool environment, and avoidance of tight or occlusive clothing articles. Goes away on its own even doing nothing.

Depends: If you have large breasts and the area under them is moist, then using antiperspirant powder on the area may help. If the area is read and "rashy", try an anti-fungal cream. If the rash is itchy and dry , then it may be from a contact allergen. In the latter case , Hydrocortisone cream may help.

Rash tx: Can't say as different rashes are treated differently. Your rash would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.
