Many more of you have come to the aid of the reader suffering from prickly heat.
Try cold water, which can reduce the heat, while another suggests it could be a reaction to lanolin, all some other body cream or lotion. Food allergies should also be investigated, and stop using fabric conditioners and other 'biologic' detergents. Aloe First Spray has worked for one reader, while Nat Mur can help if the heat follows exercise. Stop using an antiperspirant as this can prevent the body sweating naturally, and another discovered the heat stopped when she took beta-carotene tablets. The homeopathic remedy Pineal Glandular can help, while another reader has found nettle tea to be effective. Try 100 mg vitamin C a day, says one reader, or perhaps yoga, and especially the candle position (head and shoulders on the ground, legs and hips straight up, and supported by the hands).
