I get heat rash under my breasts and crevices of my upper legs near the groin. I clean the areas and then apply dry corn starch, 2 days and it"s gone.

Living in Spain, I seem to get heat rash under my breasts every year. I am a 36GG and it is hard to keep cool under there, I only wear cotton non-underwired bras, and wash at least 2 or 3 times a day. I have been prescribed various creams over the years, Canasten, Sudocrem and the latest is Batmen a cortisone based one. I used it twice a day for 10 days and it cleared up, then I got hot and it came back worse than ever.

I have polycythemia rubra vera and I am having blood removed every 6 weeks. Normally shortly before having this done, I have a severe case of heat rash on my inner thigh. I take cold baths to try and relieve the itch and have been taking Reactine and Benadryl tablets for relief as well. I am not due for my blood to be removed for another three weeks. Can you give me some indication of why this occurs - at any time, let alone just before a phlebotomy.

Red rash on upper inner section of thigh near groin area. Also discoloration of "over lapping" stomach that is constant contact with the leg portion. If sitting causes pressure on lower stomach and results are new red marks that later turn a form of black and blue appearance. Sometimes can be painful.
