Q:
What does itchy red rash on your skin mean?

A:
When red rash appears on your skin, often it is either itchy or not. If it is itchy red rash, what you have might be heat rash. Heat rash develops when blocked pores (sweat ducts) trap perspiration under your skin, and attacks you during hot and humid weather.

Heat rash usually heals by cooling the skin and avoiding exposure to the heat that caused it. But you definitely need to see doctor if it gets severe, including the following symptoms:

  • Increased pain, swelling, or redness
  • Pus draining from the leisons
  • A fever or chills
