Heat Rash Complications
While heat rash does not lead to heat stroke, both conditions may rarely occur in the same individual. Heat rash is a very common, self-limited skin condition while heat stroke is an uncommon more serious, generalized illness. Heat stroke requires immediate medical attention. Heat stroke is particularly life-threatening in the frail, ill, and elderly.
