Heat rash (also known by its scientific name, Miliaria ) is a condition caused when the skin's sweat glands are blocked, trapping sweat beneath the skin. It is triggered by heat, meaning that working hard in the heat or sunbathing can cause it.  The irritation and dotted red "pinprick" rash that results can be anything from a minor nuisance to a serious problem depending on how far they are allowed to progress. Luckily, the condition is easy to get rid of if you treat it early. Use these easy tricks to clear up a minor case of heat rash!
Last year I developed a rash under my eyes and I was promptly prescribed hydrocortisone cream. It didn't help much and the doctor referred me to see a dermatologist. I was told to keep using the hydrocortisone and I was discharged. As the steroid cream didn't help I searched the internet for another remedy and that's how I came across a product called Magicream. It claims it only contains natural ingredients and it promised to clear up my rash. I was so excited! I have recently found out that the cream in fact contains Clobetasol Propionate and Ketoconazole. I was devastated to find this out especially since side effects include red spots and a burning sensation! When I stopped using the cream the side effects were terrible - I don't need to tell you as you know how the withdrawal of steroid can affect ones face. I then did a search on line and found your website which made so much sense and helped me to understand what was happening with my skin. I ordered the Face & Body Wash and the Face & Neck TheraCream and I have been symptom FREE ever since. Thank you from a once frustrated person!! Trish Managold, UK
Studies show some of the chemicals in coal tar may cause cancer, but only in very high concentrations, such as in what is used in industrial paving. Anyone using tar regularly should follow a regular skin cancer checkup schedule. California requires OTC coal tar shampoos, lotions and creams that contain more than percent coal tar to be labeled with cancer warnings. However, the FDA maintains that OTC products with coal tar concentrations between percent and 5 percent are safe and effective for psoriasis, and there is no scientific evidence that the tar in OTC products is carcinogenic.
