Your baby sweats to cool down.

If he sweats so much that his pores clog and sweat can't get out, heat rash develops.

(Babies and young children are particularly prone to heat rash because they have smaller pores than adults do.)

Hot, humid weather is prime time for heat rash, but you might see it in winter, too, if your baby is wearing too many layers of clothing or is running a fever.

Sometimes a baby will get heat rash after a cough ointment is rubbed on his chest.
