You are suffering from PRICKLY HEAT.

This is a very common condition during the hot days and is caused during the hot summer and rainy season when there is profuse sweating and the body is not exposed to the air. Red pustules, the size of mustard grains appear on the body especially on the chest, back and the abdomen. There is intense itching. If the area of the affected skin is scratched, it gives temporary relief, but there are chances of the pustules to get septic. Persons suffered from prickly heat should avoid heavy garments and try to expose the affected area to air. Take a cold water bath twice daily and follow a few other easy remedies too.

  • Dissolve Fuller's earth (Multani mitti) in water to make a thin paste. It should be smeared over the affected parts. When the paste dries, wash with cold water.
  • Apply green henna ground in water on the affected skin.
  • Grind leaves of Neem in water and apply on the affected skin.
  • The most effective remedy for treating prickly heat is to take a small piece of sandalwood and rub it into a paste on a stone with rose water. Mix a pinch of powdered alum to the paste and apply to the affected skin twice or thrice a week depending upon the conditions of prickly heat.
