Countless of people are looking forward of a summer spree vacation. As we all know, summer days bequeath sightseer and traveler’s summer skin problems which needs to be address soon before this issue will ruin not only their skin but their whole summer getaway. No one wants to wreck a summer hang out with friends, family and love ones, right?

Summer days definitely bring us enjoyment leaving things behind our hectic working schedules thus escaping our busy life for a while. Wearing bikinis, swimsuits and other outfits that cool our heating bodies and showing off our skin might lead us to some skin problems that will disrupt our vacations spree. However, there are many factors to consider on how to prevail against these summer skin problems and there are ways to put them off too.

Here are few skin problems and some preventive measures you can deem on:

1. Heat rash - it’s a common red large spots that appear in people with fair skin, which are mostly exposed to the sun. One effective way to prevent it is by putting on high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) sunscreen, while enjoying the open sun.

2. Photosensitivity condition of the skin – this is commonly caused by drugs. A person under medications is more sensitive of being exposed to the sun. This kind of skin problem is popularly known as drug-induced Photosensitivity which also usually accompanied by rashes. To eradicate this skin condition, one must not take birth-control pills, blood pressure medicines and anti-inflammatory drugs if you want to enjoy your summer vacation.

3. Prickly Heat – this is another common skin rash caused by excessive sweat produced in the sun exposure. Some call it, Skin Malaria. Our perspiration is too much and there is a tendency that our sweat ducts are blocked. When our sweat finds a way to get out of our sweat ducts, this instance allows our sweat to leak up just under our skin which causing rashes to appear. This skin problem often appears at the back of babies and children. To prevent this, treat your skin with mild baby powder and sun protection lotion.

4. Photo allergic Dermatitis – its one kind of rashes which appears as your skin and sun rays comes in reaction with certain chemicals that are present on the skin. It maybe in forms of perfumes, soaps and cosmetics that can cause this type of skin rash. Even some SPF lotions and sunblocks are not exempted and can still add up to the irritation that occurs. To treat this discontinue the usage of that chemical and try other alternative that is hypoallergenic and safe.

5. Rashes you can get from plants - obviously some plants do bloom during summer time and often times we can get in contact with these kinds of plants that commonly cause some irritating rashes. Some known plants that cause these skin rashes are daffodils, nettles and some thorny kinds of plants. But one of the effective ways to stop the rash is again cleaning the affected areas, to avoid more irritations and stay away from wild plants that may cause rashes.

6. Insect bites – this is common to vacationers. Insect bites usually cause a bit itchy rashes as nasty as it is. If you cannot avoid scratching it that definitely leads to further irritation. Best to do is to ask help from a physician to give you proper prescriptions of antibiotics needed to clear the rashes out preventing further damage and infection so that you will not end up with a more discouraging summer vacation.

Whatever that might have caused your rashes, if it’s unattended, it could lead to extreme irritation and itch. So why worry about summer skin problems if it can be barred soon before it emerges.
