Sweat rash?? i have no idea...

My daugher (2yrs) has a couple of clear tiny pimple looking bumps on her upper arm. They don't seem to be itchy or anything. Her dad said its probably sweat rash. Anyone heard of this, or have seen this in your kids? She has her 2 yr check up on Tuesday, so I will show him, of course, but im just wondering if we are alone.

  • heat rash is common in children. Keep the area dry and aired out. It happens when the sweat is absorbed back into the skin. It's unsightly, but harmless.

  • I have also heard it called heat rash.... put some A&D on it or some other diaper cream and it should go away....
