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!

When you are ready to add more cornstarch you should wash the area well and dry it before applying the cornstarch. You want to try and keep this area as dry as possible.

Some people find it very helpful. I prefer calamine liquid.

Be very careful with heat rash, as in some people can it can turn into a cellulitis quickly where the affected skin appears swollen and red and is typically painful and warm to the touch.

If you think it is more than your usual rash, please seek medical attention as cellulitis is a serious, but treatable infection.
