Hmmmm. Never had that before... Maybe you could try some baby powder?? Maybe you could change your shirt often throughout the day to keep your skin dry? Hope it gets better!! - Titough :D

Hey. It's Michele again. That heat rash will go away soon. It is pretty common to have a heat rash because your brace is so tight and you sweat under it. Ask your mom to treat it with some type of cream or ointment.

When my daughter was in the Boston Brace, she got a rash on her stomach even though she always wore a shirt under the brace. We treated it with cortizone cream and it went away. It is caused by the heat and the sweat and is normal.

Hey cheergrl. That heat rash is completely normal. Because the brace is so tight, you will sweat a lot and that can cause a heat rash. I just got my brace on Friday, June 5th. I haven't gotten a heat rash yet, but boy is it hot under that brace! Ask your mom to treat it with some type of cream.
