Heat rash is very common in children, especially in summer when the weather is hot and humid. To treat this at home, go to your kitchen and grab your cornstarch. Use this as a powder to their bodies or where the rash is present, whether on their back, chest or neck. It's simple and safe.

Is cornstarch good for a heat rash?
Use calamine lotion or cool compresses to calm
You can also try adding baking soda or cornstarch directly to the rash to absorb the moisture and sweat. Reapply every few hours and before each time you apply do rinsing and drying your skin. Keep doing until you are satisfied
Yes, you got it!! Cornstarch is good for a heat rash. But, I would start first with a medicinal measure first as in; neosporin, bactroban, or caladryl. When it starts looking better, then use the constarch to keep the area dry to make the rash go away and not spread. Good luck!
