Skip to comments.Anyone have a cure for prickly heat?

I was wondering if any doctors here or moms or grannies have any suggestions for "prickly heat."
Baking soda seems a cure for most any skin ailment. Cheap too! :)
When raising my kids and cooking alot, I kept a large aloe plant in the kitchen window...just break off a 1 inch piece and rub it on the burn...takes the pain away.
ah you funny guy you!
Lucky you if she listens.......
Soak in the pool ‘til your skin shrivels up. Then lay nekid underneath the ceiling fan.
However, vodka- applied internally-- will make you forget the condition...
My son gets it all the time in the summer. I just have him take a shower then stay in the air conditioning without anything but undies for a day. Just cool, dry air seems to clear it up.
The “prickly” part is gone by the end of the day, so he’s not uncomfortable. The rash itself usually takes a week to clear up.
You need to join this thread! LOL!
I prefer talc powder. Found out the hard way that corn starch can feed a dormant skin fungal infection. (It was a BAD idea! lol!)
My doc said to not use corn starch to diaper a baby girl or she can get a yeast rash on her bottom. (A friend confirmed that this was the case with her daughter, but I used it for mine without a problem, so it’s a “better safe than sorry” kind of thing.)
Move to North Dakota.
Now we know what kind of “theater” you frequent.
I may suggest more water intake and some more “sweat” inducing work outs 4 times a week
Consult the doc.
I love vaudeville/burlesque.
Unfortunately no one can ‘frequent’ this type of show much anymore.
The ones who knew how to deliver real comedy are dead, or dying.
Oh, and I’m not a member of your herd, so don’t bother with the ‘holier than thou’ stuff and I’ll spare you the same.
You completely misconstrued what I wrote. Lighten up.
Since anybody knows that burlesque no longer exists, I would think you would have recognized that my comment about your “frequenting” burlesque theaters was a joke.
There is no “lightening up” around here any more. You have to be very careful about what you say.
I was on a thread earlier today making comments about the Obama kids-peace sign shirt fiasco, and some jerk comes out of the blue and starts shooting at me. Totally ignored the basic premise of my comments.
Next thing you know, if somebody says “your” and you correct them to “you’re”, you might open the door and have some PO’d goon standing there with a shotgun. Seriesly!!
Jeesh! This place used to sometimes be fun. Now it’s just melancholy.
I had such a rash when in the Army. No powders or ointments helped. A medic gave me some pure talc and that did the trick.
I did indeed.
It took on a whole new meaning when I read in your profile that you were a priest.
Ghosts from the past, I guess.
It’s much harder to determine the meaning of some comments when you’re not in front of the person to gauge them.
It doesn’t happen often with me.
I meant no offense, really, but only to warn of impending onslaught if he was indeed shaming and had plans of adding to it.
My relationships with priests have been shaky, at best. I’ve known some real hell-raisers that called themselves priests. So past experience didn’t help here.
FR is still fun.
I move that we move on.
Well, I wasn’t commenting on you, it was a general sort of thing.
The amount of infighting, snide comments, rudeness, empire and territory building has risen dramatically here in the last couple years. Some people are just outright mean. Bad to the bone, and they don’t give a rat’s behind what you might think of it.
I’m just sayin. Wish it were more civil here. But maybe it’s just a reflection of society at large.
Things like this are more preventive than cure. Try Swansonvitamins.com for all supplement needs. In the meantime add baking soda to your bath water and apply cornstarch.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/horse-chestnut/NS_patient-horsechestnut
Yeah, well, I belong in at least one of those categories you mentioned.
I spend quite a bit of time fighting the left (activism) and my disdain, no, hatred, of their ideas and their effects on free-born people overflow onto this forum.
I’m much nicer in person. :)
I have thousands of customers in my business and I am generally liked by those who are not liberals/socialists/communists.
I’m no friend of those that would enslave me, that’s for sure.
In that regard, think of me as a benevolent destroyer.
gold bond medicated powder really helps too
The guy who ran The Troc, in Baltimore, used to make up the artists’ names, with slogans. I used to know a few of them (the names, not the artists), but nowadays, I can remember only one: “Beth Lehem. All wise men come to see her.”
As a child, I used to get around my chest and neck area. My Irish Grandmother suggested Cornstarch to be applied./Just Asking - seoul62.......
Here’s another one from that area:
STRAIGHT They need a quartet down at the Gaiety Theater. Can you sing?
FIRST COMIC Sure. I used to sing in a queer.
STRAIGHT No. No. You mean a choir.
FIRST COMIC It was a queer choir.
STRAIGHT A queer choir?
FIRST COMIC Yes. We weren’t even sure about the man who played the organ.
STRAIGHT What do you mean?
FIRST COMIC He played nothing but hymns.
STRAIGHT Let’s sing out of these books [passing out song books].
FIRST COMIC What page shall we sing on?
STRAIGHT Sing on page 14.
SECOND COMIC [looking at book] There’s no page 14 in my book.
FIRST COMIC Sing on page seven twice. [Second comic sings a few bars of an operatic aria.] What are you singing?
SECOND COMIC [showing first comic the page] See. It says right here Pag-a-ni-ni.
FIRST COMIC You damn fool. That’s page nine.
Sorry--we shouldn't be laughing--prickly heat can be a beast!
Besides the obvious cures like talcum powder, cornstarch and Gold Bond’s Body Powder, I’m wondering if you take any medications that might cause the problem. I take multiple meds for sugar, hypertension, thyroid, etc., and noticed that when I get in the sun, the exposed parts of my legs, feet, arms and hands look like I have the measles. It doesn’t itch, but it looks funny. It’s as if all the red pigments come to the surface of the skin. Needless to say, I don’t stay in the sun very long.
Try a paste made of corn starch. Works for me.
Thanks - no meds at this time (or yet) - thank goodness. Yep looks like the measles.
Walking about 3 hours in 92 or more degree heat with 65% humidity, lots of subscreen and a bush hat. Golfers or make that aspiring golfers can be nutty. I usually start at 5:30 pm and play til 8:10 pm so the last hour or more is not too bad.
The sunscreen on the legs is not real heavy put i am sure it is blocking pores releasing sweat which is largely Salt (sodium). I need to drink more water too. I drink it but need to drink more.
