Heat Rash That Comes and Goes?

Hello! For the last few months I have been experiencing a heat rash type rash that comes and goes mostly on my arms (inside my elbows), wrists (again, on the inside of my arm primarily) and chest/neck area. The weird thing is, it comes on suddenly, is very itchy and red (but not usually raised) and then goes away within 5-10 minutes sometimes a few more or less. I've also been noticing lately that when I wake up my face has red dots on it mostly around my eyes, cheeks and nose that don't really itch but my face does look irritated. They are mostly faded by the end of the day but are still sometimes faint and can be seen in the evening. Could this be an allergic reaction to something? I take Valtrex 1x/day for HSV-2 but no other regular medication. Also, I have a husky that I moved in with (my boyfriends dog) about 6 months ago but the rash comes on at times that I'm not in the house (like in the grocery store or at work) so I'm not sure I can blame the dog. Thanks!

Not sure what that would be, but you may want to check with a Dermatologist.

Re: Heat Rash That Comes and Goes?

Heat rash may occur as a side effect of some medications. The sweat gland ducts can get blocked if excessive sweating occurs, and that sweat is not allowed to evaporate from a specific area. you can treat heat rashes by Avoiding hot and humid places and make use of air conditioners and fans, Cleanse the affected area with an antibacterial solution and let it air dry, Wear loose cotton clothes and avoid synthetic clothing ect
