  • Most babies get these at some point somewhere on their body. Just try to keep her clean and dry (hard to do sometimes I know). They are normal and won't hurt her and will eventually go away.

  • Keep her dry and clean. Other than that, there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Babies get that from being hot and sweaty. They don't hurt or itch and will go away.

  • My kids still get it on hot summer days. I just give them plenty of fluids and dress them as cooly and loosly as possible.
