Skin rashes can be of different types. Recently, we came to know that space heaters, portable heaters and portable electric heaters can also cause skin rashes. These skin rashes, caused due to the electric portable heaters look 'net like' rash spreading vertically near your lower leg. This means that the lower leg is directly facing exposure to the heat from the electric heater.

Skin Rashes due to Electric Heater or Portable Heater

Usually, hotels and homes in US and other countries contain central heating and cooling systems. However, skin rashes due to heat can occur when you have a direct exposure to a heat source (portable heaters, electric fire or regular firewood fire) for prolonged hours everyday.

Such direct exposure to heaters or even laptops can cause rashes on your skin. Usually, the rash appears only on the area that is under direct contact with the heater or the laptop. This rash appears in various colors and forms. It may have a net-like shape, seem bluish black in color and so on. For some, it may seem reddish or like a lump.

Remedies for Electric Heater Skin Rashes

There is a possibility of itching or a burning sensation in the area where you have a skin rash. If your laptop heats up easily, it is best to use a cooling pad or place it on a desk instead of keeping in on your lap.

In case of skin rashes from electric heater or a portable space heater, avoid direct heat to the skin. Place your heater far from your legs. Try to direct the heat to any opaque source near you. This way, you will not get the direct heat and yet be warm.

Also, it is important to keep your skin clean. Try to wipe the heat rash with a wet towel. Apply neosporin or any calamine lotion. The skin rash area should not be too dry or too oily. Avoid applying oil to the skin rash area especially when your heater is working. It will only overheat your skin and worsen the condition.

It is best to contact your dermatologist or family doctor before the skin condition worsens. Often, we tend to try various home remedies and ignore the seriousness of the problem. If your skin rash does not fade away sooner, it is best to contact your doctor without too much delay. Usually, when you avoid exposing the skin to your heat source- heater, space heater, laptop etc., the skin will become normal in few weeks or a month's time.
