Prickly heat powder is a fine medicated powder that absorbs sweat. When a person has a tendency to develop summer heat rash, his/her sweat glands get clogged or choked up due to bacteria. As a result, the skin is no longer able to cool itself effectively. When exposed to further heat and humidity, the skin breaks out into rashes with reddish papules, blisters or boils. Heat rashes are extremely itchy and can affect the quality of life of the sufferers. Prickly heat powder absorbs the sweat and cools the skin providing much needed relief from such rashes. These days, you even get medicated powders that also unblock the choked sweat glands to cure heat rash completely. Let us find out which the best prickly heat powder for heat rash in adults are.
