    I'm not sure if there is a real/proper word for them, but I call them heat bumps. Does anyone else get them?

    I thought I was doing well this year as I hadn't got any yet, but today I've noticed them forming all down the sides of my fingers where I get them every year They are just little bumps the smae colour as my skin which 'come up' in hot weather, normally on the sides of my two fingers nearest my thumb on each hand, but occasionally on the other fingers too and the thumb.

    They are painless, but rather annoying

    I'm not sure about the ones you describe but whenever I have a bath/shower, I get what look like little insect bites all over my chest and back...is that just heat rash?

    I get the same now (never used to really), little itchy bumps on the top of my back and soemtimes on me tummy. A wash does help, but with all the immensely annoying hot weather recently, the skin becomes try pretty quickly.

    If it becomes too bad, maybe get some cream to soothe the areas.

    I find a nice cool shower with some special cream/soap cools them pretty well.

    I get heat rash. Well, I got heat rash - I went to the doctors about it and was prescribed antihistamine. I started off on Piriton, but it wasn't not strong enough. I'm now on Neoclarityn, whic is amazing! Take one tablet when you notice them, and its gone in hours! They're only available on prescription tho so u have to see your doctor.

    I drink galloons of water yet it is a constant battle on whether or not they are going to pop up. I have 2 atm which is good as normally after a hot day my hands covered. I just keep them in the shade and avoid putting water or cream on becuase once I do that I have to constantly be putting stuff on otherwise they come back worse. At night though before I go to bed I use a spray filled with cold water on me to cool me down before I sleep.

    Mine are annoying, red and itchy try and avoid heat too much

    i get really severe heat bumps every summer....they completly cover my hands and my arms.. and because the itch i just make them worse. it looks really ugly at the worst of times.

    THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!

    Neoclarityn works wonders! Ask your doctor about it.

    I used to get severe heat bumps too, and thought there was nothing that could be done, but try Neoclarityn. Its a really stong antihistamine, and it cured my problem!

    I've never had them before, but for the last few days I've had a ton around my stomach. They are very itchy! It must be a different kind of heat.

    I tend to get them every summer, but they're never severe. Usually they appear on my neck and/or the insides of my elbows and it takes a lot to resist the urge to scratch at them (yes they can get very itchy!). I used to use a cream called Caladryl for it - it was very good for soothing the affected area and within a short span of time, the rash disappeared. Nowadays I don't need cream for heat rashes as they appear quite rarely and they aren't as itchy as before.
