Apply this paste to hands , neck or sun rashes prone area. Do this the entire summer before going to bed.  You need not wipe it out, it will dissolve into your skin or fall off when you wake the next day.
If suppose you do not own the original sandalwood, then go for any branded sandalwood powder.  Do not go for any local brands as they might cause infections and more burns to the prickly heats.

Rice water:

I got this wonderful remedy from my grandparents. The whitish water obtained while cleaning the rice is the best medicine for prickly heats.

As the rice might contain dust and dirt, discard the water obtained while cleaning rice for the first time. For the second wash , collect it in a clean bowl and apply to your entire body before bath. Leave it for 15minutes, it might smell awkward but it vanishes after your shower.

Prickly Heat Powder:
While choosing the Prickly Heat powders available in market, do not buy the one’s which gives a cooling effect instead go for the one’s which reduces the sweat content.  There are lot many medicated powders prescribed by the physicians.
