3. Ice packs
Ice packs are often used to relieve swelling and bruising associated with bone fractures. What you may not know though is that they’re also very effective when it comes to treating prickly heat rashes. They will cool the area down, allowing the prickly heat rash to dissipate over time. If you don’t have any ice packs on hand then you can improvise and make one yourself.
All you need are some ice cubes and a clean cloth. The keyword here is clean as using a dirty cloth can make matters worse if the rash gets infected. Washing the cloth with soap and warm water prior to using it for an ice pack is advised. If you don’t have any ice then even a cloth soaked with cold water can help relieve the prickly heat rash. Some people refrigerate their clothes after washing them for later use.
