Miscellaneous: Heat Rash Palliative!

This has nothing to do with minerals, and is only marginal to natural history, but...

I serendipitously found something that makes heat rash quit itching and allows it to heal: Conditioner for Hair.

(Heat rash raises itchy welts on your skin, especially where any clothing binds or abrades your skin.)

You know what hair conditioner is, right? The stuff you put on your hair after you shampoo it, to make the hair smooth, shiny, and easy to comb.

I have used both Neutrogena and Pantene conditioner, but suspect others will work as well. They work for me.

To apply, just rub the conditioner on your dry skin like hand lotion, and see if it helps. If you can, apply it after a bath or shower; but it seems to work under other circumstances as well.

  • I am not a medical doctor. Please check with an MD if you have any concerns.
  • I have no stake in the success of any shampoo or conditioner company.
