In brief: Cold compresses

For immediate relief cold compresses with milk on a paper towel to remove the heat from the skin.
Oatmeal baths are soothing. Topical steroid lotion can also help. As a preventive an absorbent powder such as zeasorb.

In brief: Keep dry

Try to keep the affected area as clean; and dry as possible.
Oatmeal soaks and salves are very useful in relieving the symptoms and helping to break the "itch/scratch" cycle; which is of utmost importance in allowing the skin to heal.
