What is the outlook for prickly heat?
Although prickly heat may be itchy and uncomfortable, it is not a serious condition. The rash usually clears in a few days without any particular treatment. Some people who develop prickly heat after moving to a hot, humid environment may stop experiencing symptoms within a period of two to five months. However, the condition affects everyone differently.
