Miliaria rubra

Miliaria rubra

Miliaria rubra (also known as "Prickly heat"[1] and "Heat rash"[1]) is a skin condition that appears as discrete, extremely pruritic, erythematous papulovesicles accompanied by a sensation of prickling, burning, or tingling.[2]:23 Differential Diagnosis should be used to rule out polycythemia vera, which is a rare hematological disorder and appears more often in males that females and generally not before the age of 40. Both disorders share the common denominator of appearing after taking a hot shower.
