What is it?
Harmless pimply skin rash mostly affects babies and overweight people in hot weather. It appears around skin creases and where clothing is tight. The skin rapidly recovers on a return to cooler weather.
Symptoms:
Rash, itchy skin.
Conventional Practice:
Doctors usually advise sufferers to wear loose clothing, avoid direct sunlight and take frequent baths or showers. Calamine lotion give some relief.
Alternative Treatments:
  Herbal Medicine
  The medicinal use of herbs is said to be as old as mankind itself. Tribes still use their traditional knowledge of plant and their healing properties passed on from generation to generation. The armies of slave workers who laboured to build the Egyptian pyramids took a daily ration of garlic to ward off the pestilential fevers and infections that were rife at the time. More Info
