Highlighting Miliaria is a very troublesome and irritating skin disease. It can be any of the following sweat rash, heat rash, prickly heat and miliaria rubra. It generally happens because of the heat and humidity. The sweat from your body leads to rash on your body.
It mostly happens on the back, neck or any fold of your skin and can be very irritating. Anybody can be infected by miliaria but especially those who are bed ridden or are overweight. Babies are prone to miliaria too.
Some of the very commonly used methods to get rid of Miliaria are
Shower after excessive sweating: One of the best ways of curbing Miliaria is to shower after you sweat too much. Sweat is the main cause of Miliaria. If you shower, you do not give the sweat to accumulate and thus cause rashes. Also, after bathing you must wipe yourself well and not let any moisture remain on your body as that too can cause rashes.
Soak in water mixed with sandalwood or oatmeal: Soaking in these mixtures help the body to cool off as well as remove any Miliaria that maybe on your body. Other things that also help your body cool off after being mixed in water are baking soda and corn starch. Doing this helps soothe the body and remove the itchiness.
Aloe Vera: It is one of the most commonly used and the best method of removing your rash. It is very simple; all you have to do is apply the aloe vera gel that has been extracted from the plant and apply it on your skin.
Where comfortable clothes: Wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothes is the ideal way of staying cool in the heat. Tight clothes don’t let the skin breathe. So it is best to wear light clothes to avoid any sort of rash. When the clothes are loose, they allow the sweat to dry up.
The best thing about the above mentioned methods are that they are simple and most of them are natural. They do not have any side effects and can be done at home.
