What Are the Symptoms of Heat Rash in Children and Adults?
The common symptoms of heat rash are red bumps on the skin, and an itchy or prickly feeling to the skin. These are due to inflammation of the superficial layers of the skin and the prickly sensation is similar to the feeling of mild sunburn. The symptoms of heat rash are the same in infants and adults; however, since an infant can't complain about the rash sensation, he or she may be fussy.
Any body part may be affected. Areas characteristically affected by heat rash include the face, neck, back, abdomen, groin, under the breasts, elbow folds, and buttocks.
