What is miliaria?

This is the very common heat rash usually seen on the neck of small infants who have a fever or who have been allowed to get too hot. The rash consists of small pink macules, which fade when pressed. The rash is caused by sweat irritating the infant’s sensitive skin. Miliaria usually disappears when washed with cold water. Prevent by not overheating the child. Avoid excessive clothes or blankets, especially in summer.
