Miliaria or heat rash is a group of skin ailments that can occur when sweat glands become blocked during extensive heat exposure or overheating, usually from hot and humid environments that cause profuse sweating. People with miliaria often develop a rash, as well as itching and blistering. Even though miliaria isn’t life-threatening, it’s a good idea to have any rash checked by a doctor.


1. Papules

The most recognizable malaria symptom is papules, which are small red rashes that appear on the skin. They are often itchy and cause irritating. You may feel tempted to scratch your skin, but this will worsen symptoms. Even though papules can appear anywhere on the body, they mostly appear on the chest, elbows, and under the scrotum. It’s also possible to have papules in multiple areas of the body. If you wear tight-fitting clothes, you are more likely to develop papules; likewise, it’s important to air out covered parts of the body every once in a while to ensure that the pores of the skin stay free of sweat.
