Diaper rash : Try a combination of 50% lotromin cream with 50% 0.5% hydrocortisone cream applied lightly to the rash twice a day. If that doesn't improve in a week see your doctor

Things to consider. : Your son is 11 years of age and he is due to have a tetanus booster at this age. As for the shin cut, hopefully it was cleaned with hydrogen peroxide and treated with an antibiotic ointment. The best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with his pediatrician or family physician to get his shot and check on his cut.

May be hard to do...: People try to live and work in conditions that their bodies are able to adapt to, but sometimes that is not possible. A primary care doctor and a dermatologist can help prevent and treat recurrent heat rash (miliaria treatment). Keeping the skin surface intact, healthy, and normal is important. That means not rubbing the skin with rough clothes, or getting industrial chemicals on them.

Hmmm: I am not a dermatologist but yes you can get a rash from heat. You can get a rash from sweating. You can get a skin infection and get a rash. I think you need to consult a dermatologist if your rash persists/.
