Heat rash. What is it? - dog8food - 06-28-2013 09:31 AM

My girlfriend's skin broke out in these little pimple-like itchy spots all over. Mainly down her arms and legs. We're thinking it's because we've been out in the dry extreme heat lately. However I wasn't affected. Is there something she can do to relieve all the itches?

Now that I've done more research, I'm thinking it may not be the sun at all. My girlfriend is Chinese and now that she's been in the states for about a year, she may be having a reaction to gluten. Especially because recently we've been supplementing with a small dose of kelp, and I just read the connection between dermatitis herpetiformis and iodine. Perhaps we'll lay off the kelp for a bit to see what happens.

If it is heat rash, what causes it? Supposedly during the peak heat times of the summer she often breaks out.
