Hi there, My baby is one month old now. She is having prickly heat all over the body including face due to the heat. It's been four days now and still it's there. It's not worsen but also not gone. I'm worried on this. Can we use calamine lotion to cure this? If so pls. Suggest a good brand to go with. If not pls. Suggest what can be done to solve this. Thx in advance..

Calamine lotion may not work for everyone. Please use light cotton clothes and also stop using oil for some days. If the redness doesn't reduce please see a doctor

Thanks Dr Pooja Marathe ! Will follow this and check. Can you also suggest then what can be applied before bath because usually I do oil massage before bathing.

Since it's summers avoid oil of any kinds. Let the rash come down. See the changes on the skin and then proceed. But incase the problem still remain please see the doctor

Okay got it👍 Thanks Dr Pooja Marathe
