Save these products for a special occasion or use them on a weekly basis.

Rashes aren’t normal, so don’t ignore them. Hives mean that you’re allergic to food, plants, bug bites, or toiletries. Take an anti-histamine, especially if you have other symptoms. A sunburn is caused by overexposure to ultraviolet radiation, while a heat rash is caused by blocked sweat glands. If you have eczema, triggers like sweat or perfume can cause an outbreak.
