Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. For your information, there is no cure for heat allergy. However, these are a few routines that you can exercise to minimize rashes and skin problems, such as:

  • Identify your allergens (triggers) and avoid them. In the case of heat allergy, the triggers are usually hot water, sunset and warm room temperature. Therefore, to avoid this you should avoid all of the above for example using an umbrella when having to walk under the sun.
  • Avoid tight clothing and use sweat-like clothing instead of synthetic materials
  • Apply sunblock or sunscreen
  • Make sure the room are well ventilated and cool
  • Choose cold water baths
