In summer, the temperature is high, the air humidity is high, and the sweat can’t be volatilized in time. If it stays on the skin surface for a long time, the cuticle will be impregnated, resulting in the occlusion of the sweat duct mouth, and the sweat that continues to be secreted can’t be discharged, so that the pressure inside the sweat duct is too large and it will burst, and the rash will be formed when the sweat leaks to the skin. So, children summer long prickly heat, peach leaf water bath work?
