While we were on our little paddle boat trip I got kind of hot in my life jacket out in the sun. When we got home from our adventure. We moved a bunch of rocks around in our front yard. It was over a 100 degrees outside. Later that night I noticed I had an insanely itchy rash up my arms, on my chest, up my neck, and behind ears. I thought maybe I was allergic to something I came in contact with when we were paddle boating. I tried anti-itch creams, and lotions. They didn't help at all. I even tried some benedryl. All we had was children's Benedryl, so I took a dose of that. WOWZA!!! That stuff is potent. I was knocked out cold on the couch for an hour. I could hear my kids, but I couldn't open my eyes! Freaky. I can't imagine what it would do to a kid. Everything I tried and did would not make that rash go away. It was horribly itchy and drove me insane. It lasted about 2 weeks. I finally figured out it was heat rash and that putting lotions and things on it just made it worse. No wonder it took so long to go away. So if you are ever out in the heat and get overheated and break out in a rash. Put ice on it and nothing else, or you will never get rid of it.
