Hi all,

My babe aged 6 weeks has the dreaded prickly heat which is gradually getting worse, its only on her face but she does manage to sratch/rub at it!

The chemist recommended aquaeous calamine cream, which i've just begun using, has any one else used this? Also does any wise ole m'netter have a secret miracle cure?!!

I know its fairly common in babes of this age, but its worth asking

aloe vera gel from the health shop was recomended to me, it does help relieve it. They told me to keep it in the fridge as well, so it was nice and cooling.
