Your baby’s skin can be adversely affected by hot weather.

A rash is a skin rash that occurs as a result of clogged pores, which are small sweat gland channels in the skin. These rashes may increase in hot weather or if the baby is in an extremely hot environment.

Grades of the rash

The rash can appear in various forms. The milder rash appears as small blisters of water that break easily and form fine scales. In more severe cases, itchy and blistering red rashes may occur. These rashes can cause a tingling or itchy sensation in the heat. The rash disappears after a few days, but may recur. A rash usually occurs in the summer or in extremely hot environments. Causes such as wearing thick clothes and not washing frequently, which cause excessive sweating, also have a facilitative effect.

Particular attention should be paid to blond and light-colored babies.

To prevent heat rash, babies should not be dressed too thickly in hot environments. Sweat-absorbing cotton clothes should be preferred and washed frequently. Even in the winter months, the indoor temperature of 23–24 degrees is sufficient. Since babies will sweat frequently in warmer environments, a rash can be seen even in winter. Taking a bath precedes medication for a rash. Blond and fair-skinned babies may have a rash more often.

Frequent bathing and cream application under doctor’s control

In the treatment of rash, except for frequent bathing, if the skin is itchy, anti-itch creams and anti-inflammatory creams can be used under the supervision of a physician. Since contact with natural and clean sea water will keep the ends of the sweat glands open, it can be recommended for babies whose vaccinations have been completed in the summer months.

Watch out for overweight babies.

Especially in overweight babies, folds are risky areas for rash. It will be beneficial to use moisturizers (lotions, baby oils, or olive oil) on these areas, especially after bathing.
