Patient Comments: Heat Rash - Describe Your Experience

Please describe your experience with heat rash.

Comment from: Vernmeister223, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: August 08

I live in South Florida and have noticed in the past two years that I seem to get a severely itchy rash on the inside of my ankles all summer long. I never notice it until I get undressed at home and cool off a while. However, if I shower right away after coming home, I don't notice any irritation. I work in an automobile repair facility in the heat all day, with fans of course, but I wear leather boots that cover my ankles.
