My 6yr old son plays on terrace every evening and now I can see his skin is burnt kind blackish in color and he has developed rashes all over his back, neck, face and hands. Pls suggest some remedies for this. Don't wanna take him to doctor during these testing times.

Hi Nikita. You can apply aloe vera gel on the area. You can also try sandalwood paste. Switch to Bioderma atoderm soap which has Shea butter and glycerine and will help calm down the dryness and itchiness caused due to rashes.

It could be due to heat rash which normally happens in summers. Keep him hydrated and aloe vera gel helps to provide immediate relief. I'm using Bioderma Atoderm soap for my kid which is an antii bacterial soap and helps to prevent dryness.

Its heat rash ,It can happen in summers a lot. Dry skin is very common. Go for moisture rich soap like Bioderma atoderm. Apply coconut oil twice daily. You can apply malai too, but it makes my daughters skin sticky. Also apply few drops of oil in the navel too post bath. It should help with the dryness.
