    When are actually in a very hot weather season now with the sun heating up everything and everywhere including the rooms so much that you can hardly sleep well with either having a fan or air conditioner on. Now, constantly having the fan on isn't good for toddlers because they would catch cold and it becomes another problem for the parents.

    The best way to deal with rashes appearing on the toddlers skin as a result of too much heat is by nothing applying any body creams on their body after night bath but applying lots of medicated powder on them to help control the rashes.

    Well this is one thing that I do not miss about having the young ones around. It seemed like every day there was a new place on the body to have to attend to at certain ages, especially when school started and all the interaction. Good news is there are some good products out there these days.

    I think that the it's as a result of how fragile and sensitive their skin/body seems to be is the reason why toddlers have this issue of rashes or other skin disease probably from interactions with other children at school. I actually have to wear my nephew gloves to reduce flesh contact using the hands.

    We are also in a tropical country. When my daughter was a toddler, what we apply was corn starch. We had no air conditioner during that time and the electric fan was not sufficient to cool our home. After giving my daughter a bath, we use corn starch instead of baby powder. My mother said that the corn starch tends to cool down the skin hence the rashes are prevented. But in this modern times, I know that there are creams and lotions for that purpose.

    I haven't heard about the use of corn starch being used for such purposes but I'm glad to have such information even though it seems to be something used before the production of several creams as well as lotions that can soothe rashes and prevent its spreading all over the body.

    We live in a hot country too and heat rashes are quite common. What we do at the onset of summer to counter the rashes is to keep a raw mango out in the sun inside a copper vessel until the mango is cooked soft. Or else just boil a whole raw mango in water, mash the pulp and apply to the toddler all over the body. Leave it for 10 or 15 minutes and then bathe in lukewarm water. This is the best treatment for heat rashes and it also prevents new ones from appearing.

    Wow, this treatment of heat rashes therapy looks interesting. I'm sure that it doesn't have any side effects on the toddlers? The only problem one might experience here in using this therapy is that you don't see mango all season here and without the mango, the therapy is rendered ineffective.
