date, the only products available on the market to treat this condition
have been powders ("prickly heat powder"). However as the
problem is caused by blocked pores, it has never made sense to use a
powder to treat it, as powders are either starch or talc based, &
therefore tend to block the pores even more.
Apothecary now makes PRICKLY HEAT LOTION. which is a lotion
containing an antifungal, a coolant, & a soothing agent all in a half
strength spirit base, presented in a 100 ml pump top spray bottle for easy
application. Half strength spirit is used as pure spirit burns when
applied to a rash; the antifungal is to kill any fungus present; the
coolant provides instant cooling to the skin; & the soothing agent
soothes tender skin.
