Suggest treatment for hear rashes

How do I treat a heat rash? My skin gets really irritated when I get warmer. It feels like many needles pricking my skin and it gets worse when I scratch it. I'm 18 years old and I'm a male. This has happened before. I want a permanent solution, not just ways to prevent it.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

You seem to have miliaria..also called prickly heat. It may be a response to high temperature if your body does not tolerate. There may be multiple reddish minute vesicular eruptions. There may be burning and itching. Pricking sensation may be there. Vitamin C tab 500 mg thrice a day may be taken for long time. To relieve itch,take levocetirizine 5 mg daily at night. Sprinkle clotrimazole powder on the area affected. Dettol bath may be taken. Avoid soap. Wear cotton clothes. Stay in AC room. Low temperature enviorment might help you to alleviate lesions rapidly. I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
