See below: Heat Rash (Miliaria) occurs from blockage of sweat glands. Excessive sweating leads to overhydration of the outer layer of the skin, which is composed of dead cells. The excess accumulation of dead cells blocks the sweat glands and cause sweat to accumulate under the skin. This causes small papules (bumps) and vesicles (tiny blisters) to appear appear.

I'm noticing with the weather being as hot as it is I have little bumps all over my chest and stomach. Could this be a heat rash, what should I do?
Yes it may be: Yes it may be heat rash due to the hot weather. It happens when your sweat ducts become blocked and perspiration is trapped under your skin. Most of the time the rash goes away on its own. Best way is to cool your skin and prevent sweating, stay in airconditioned area, wear loose clothes, let thye skin air dry rather thenusing towels. If the skin is itchy use calamine lotion or Hydrocortisone cream.
