A dry skin needs a moisturiser. Plus, if you have a severe rash (which you say is prickly heat) you will need active treatment, possibly with a mild steroid cream( Don't worry... it's safe ONLY IF USED UNDER the GUIDANCE OF A DERMATOLOGIST) .So to know the diagnosis, treatment and which moisturizing lotion to use do visit an allopathic dermatologist near you.
