Summer Heat : Fissan Powder Review

Summer heat is so intense. It feels like we are inside a sauna in our home. My kids could hardly sleep despite the ac and fan inside our room and they're sweating like crazy even during night time. Grabe ganun ka init ngayon. My little ones who are very hyper active and my major problem during this season is the heat rash! LJ sweats a lot and suffers from heat rash afterwards. The rashes will appear all over his neck, back of his ears and torso followed by a non-stop scratching.

At first I was a bit hesitant to use any kind of powder for him because I was scared that it would trigger his asthma but it was the quick solution to my problem to prevent and stop the heat rash from spreading all over his body. 






When I was a kid I remembered my mom used Fissan powder for our rashes too and I must say it was effective for us. Then I tried it on my little boy. Before he slept, I put on some powder on his neck and all over his body. The next day to my surprise all the rashes were gone! Now I use it everyday all over his body and surprisingly he doesn't have any rash at all. 

Fissan powder comes with three varieties : the prickly heat powder for heat rash,  diaper rash powder and  deodorant powder for foot. I use the diaper rash powder occasionally for my little girl if she has diaper rash and few hours after application redness disappears quickly. 

Tips on how to prevent rashes to your little ones:

  • Less and loose clothing.You can let them wear sleeveless top and/or undies especially if they are just inside the house.
  • Drink lots of fluids. This will help regulate the body temperature and replace the lost fluids and prevent dehydration.
  • Bathe at least twice a day. This will cool off the heat of the body.
  • Avoid direct sunlight. 
  • Dry skin thoroughly.
  • Apply prickly heat powder. Note: Ask advice from your pediatrician before doing so.
