Think I have a small heat spot on my hand, it is itchy at times.What is a heat spot and why do we get them?

They are called Milium --arising due to the blocked sweat ducts.

You can try the following over the counter treatment option:

1. Salicylic acid 10% peel daily in daytime for 6 weeks--to cleanse the pores.


2. Adapalene 0.1% gel daily at bedtime for 6 weeks at least --helps to regenerate healthy skin and control inflammation.
