In my last several trips to Jamaica, I develop this rather unsightly rash on my elbows, knees, and the tops of my feet.
I call it prickly heat or heat rash. I've also had it in Mexico and Hawaii so it must be related to sun, saltwater, sunscreen or some combination thereof. I spent a lot of time on my honeymoon in a bathtub with chamomile teabags.
I'm hoping to turn over a new leaf with our trip to Negril in March.
Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Do certain products help? Lotions, suncsreens, etc.? What about tanning beforehand? Medicine?
The rash isn't horribly itchy but it's highly unattractive.
I usually bring Aveeno Oatmeal bath with me to help at night but it only helps a little.
