During hot weather, the skin can act up and you can find yourself having odd bumps, some itchy skin rashes and various symptoms. One thing to be aware of is that if you have a summer cold or respiratory infection and are taking an antibiotic, you can get a skin reaction if you are allergic.

Another rash during the summer is heat rash as well as reactions to swimming pools and jacuzzis. As fun as the summer can be, it can be a skin nightmare at times!

Of course, sun bathing as a whole other set of patterns. Getting a sun rash is not fun. Going in the ocean can result in sea lice, jellyfish attacks and other critters. Some people also may be using a sun tan lotion that does not agree with their skin. Applying miracle ii gel is excellent for many skin irritations.

Finally, beware of picnics where foods are left out in the heat for too long. This can result in both digestive issues, food poisoning and skin problems.
