Anyone have any suggestions for dealing with heat rash? I am a Deputy Sheriff in a Hot summer climate and part of my uniform is my bullet proof vest which really locks in the heat. At the end of my 10 hour shift my t-shirt under the vest is soaked and I put up with problem all last summer. I have heat rash on my lower back and chest, it starts to get better on my days off and then it is right back to the dang vest and new batch of bumps. I really don't enjoy the thought of working with out the vest, thanks for any suggestions.

  • Let me come over and sprinkle some Gold Bond on you before you put that vest on. They have powder and spray. You can use oatmeal soap, too. Here's some more:http://www.dermintin.com/about.htm?gclid=CP2TktiatY0CFSZuYAodNlPkHA http://www.mothernature.com/Library/bookshelf/Books/48/108.cfm
