How can I manage prickly heat?
Q: I am a 30 years old man and getting many heat bubbles on the back of the head and some on my face and body too. Is it due to the food I consume? I mostly take rice/ chapatti, dal and rarely eat curd. Please advise.
A:In the language used by majority of Dermatologists, there is no such name as "heat bubbles". So I do not know what you are talking about. If you are talking about prickly heat, then it is very rare to have it only on the scalp and face and not elsewhere over the body. Anyway, prickly heat is managed by antihistamines, topical calamine lotion, frequent cold-water baths etc. If there are complications, then other medicines are also given.
