How I get rid of prickly heat marks ?

Hi, I am 21y/o and having this prickly heat from time to time about 7yrs and they left a number marks on my areas where they exist mostly on my back. How can I remove them? Also how can I prevent this from further happening as it happens occasionally, not everytime I m sweating.
