Hi guys. I suffer from this prickly heat thing for year. Used to just hide from sunshine and not make my skin stay on the sun for to long. 2 years ago I started traveling, went to Turkey and had a veery bad red, itchy rash allover my body. face, arms, chest, legs, back... didnt know much about it then so just tried to drink calcium - didnt help at all. last year I went to South Africa, used the Soltan suncream and it this stop the rash for a bit and eventually it appeared again.

I suppose there is many people struggling with it. I'm looking for remedy, something that will help me enjoy holidays in the sun, without worrying and maybe one day have a bit of tan.. sad

Thanks for any help peeps x
