Suggest Treatment For Prickly Heat On Forehead
please guide me on it.
more information will be very helpful
Hello My Dear
I am Dr V XXXXXXX a Sr Dermatologist.
I have assessed your situation and think that I will need more details to guide you in the best possible manner.
You are requested to supply all the details as follows:
1 Pics, from early stages to now or whatever is possible
2 What kind of eruption was encountered in the initial phases; raised , watery, grouped, areas involved, evolution, associated symptoms
3 Was it confined to one side of face and forehead and accompanied by features other than itching?
4 Was it painful?
5 which steroids were used, when, and for how long?
In the meantime I would like that you get relief. It would be good to wash the area frequently, avoid soaps, use sunscreen and Tab Cetrizine or another antiallergic for itch control.
I will be awaiting your reply.

2. It was not painfull but itching initially. Not itching now. It was not watery. Was same liki pricly heat
3 it is just on forehead as shown on pic
4. Have uploaded prescription. One of them.is steroid as i was informed.
Sun protection and avoidance of irritation causing chemicals best option
Thanks for pics and answers.
I have analyzed the situation afresh and it seems that you developed photosensitive rash that was confined initially but later on spread on to whole forehead.
I get lots of patients with this presentation who already have used various preparations without much effects previously.
The strategy that works best in such individuals is as follows:
1 Keep the area protected from sunlight and environmental pollutants as far as possible.
2 Use sunscreen very regularly
3 Have more of Vit C and other antioxidants
4 Avoid cosmetics or chemicals that have potential to irritate skin
5 Ensure that you don't have any endocrinology like Thyroid disease or other hormonal issues
6 Do not touch the area repeatedly
It would take several weeks, most likely, to feel improvement provided no other medicines for this condition are applied or used orally.
I am very positive about outcome in lesions.
My best wishes
