Preparing for your appointment

By Mayo Clinic Staff

A doctor's appointment usually isn't necessary for heat rash. If your rash is more severe, you may want to see your primary care doctor or a doctor who specializes in skin disorders (dermatologist) to be sure it's heat rash and not another skin disorder.

Before you go, it's a good idea to list questions you have about your condition. For heat rash, questions to ask your doctor include:

  • What could have caused this rash?
  • How can I treat it?
  • Do I need to limit physical activity until the rash clears?
  • How can I prevent it in the future?
