In brief: Heat rash

The real heat rash is called Milaria and there are several forms.
It may be caused by the occlusion of sweat glands for unknown reasons in most cases. Occlusion, like wearing tight shirts or sitting against leather or vinyl chairs, can lead to this. Commonly, this is seen in bedridden patients.
