Hi Jayashree @jayashree prakash ,

Are the rashes all over the body or only near the thigh area?

If it is near the thighs and the abdomen area, the rashes may be due to the wearing of Diapers.

So, please avoid wearing him the diapers.

Wear only the clean cotton nappies.

If the rashes are all over the body, then you may massage the whole body with Gingelly oil and leave for some time.

Then, bathe him only with Payatha maavu (பயத்த மாவு ).

Please avoid using any kind of baby soap or any other soap.

With these, the rashes may disappear.

Wear him only cotton clothes .

Make him lie on the பாய் . Avoid rubber sheets or similar ones. On the பாய் , you can spread a cotton saree or dhothi and make him lie.

These could help him out of rashes.

if it still persists, you can meet the doctor immediately.

It is common for your newborn to develop heat rash because his skin is sensitive also adapting to the changed environment.

Some of the home remedies:
Remove Excess Clothes
Reduce Heat And Humidity
Always keep The Skin Cool
Apply Calamine Lotion on your baby's skin
