Customer Question

Hi, My eight year old has a pimple like rash all over his bottom. It is itchy and he says it stings when I put lotion on it. He has had it about 2 weeks. Any thoughts on what it might be and how to treat it?

Does he sweat a lot ?

Does he sit for long hours ?

He is very active with sports, so sweats during this. However, I don't see excessive sweating with him at other times. He used to sweat a lot during sleep, but this seems to have gone away from what I can tell.

Thank you .

His condition is called a Miliaria Rubra rash which can occur due to sweating.

This happens due to clogged sweat pores.

You should use a barrier repair product like Aveeno Relief Lotion on the area which is available once daily after bath.

The other lotion to be applied at night is Calamine lotion on a daily basis..

He should be using a 100 % cotton inner wear to absorb the sweat and avoid direct contact with synthetic cloths on the buttock area or any other area.

He should shower with water after every sport activity.
