Rashes of warm weather are on the upswing

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

With the warmer weather, Dr. William Ferrar is seeing warm weather rashes.

New spots, usually red occasionally with tiny blisters; sometimes scattered or just in a spot by itself or in a group.

You can try to use home remedies if it is a familiar looking rash or until you see the doctor.

Hydrocortisone cream can help, but don't use antibiotics until the rash has been around several days.
