heat rash

Alright I belive it's a heat rash I have between my legs and my question is what is it that I can do to cure it? I dont know whats allowed and not allowed while I'm pregnant. I was going to soak in a bath with epson salt, but is that safe? Or maybe oatmeal?

  • Soak in a warm (not hot) oatmeal or baking soda bath. I prefer baking soda. Then just use corn starch body powder/baby powder between your legs as often as you need it.

  • Epson salt soak would be fine. I would recomend putting corn starch on your legs during the day too, helps absorb moisture.

  • I don't know how hot it is in your area but I live in the desert and while I was pregnant I had a very similar problem and it was from chaffing. If it isn't very bad, like it doesn't look infected from being too raw, deoderant will help. It's actually what runners use too to prevent chaffing right between their legs. But I would use a non scented stick so that in case it is too raw, you won't get a burning from the perfume :)

  • Deoderant, corn starch, baby powder, Valsaline. Any of these things should work!!
