Synopsis

Miliaria crystallina results from blockage of the eccrine sweat duct in the upper epidermis. Typically, high fever and sweating in association with occlusion of the skin leads to miliaria crystallina. It is most likely to be seen in those who have recently moved to a tropical climate from a more temperate climate. It also follows excessive sweating; sunbathing; warming in a hot tub; high fever; or occlusion of the skin from dressings, immobility in a hospital bed, or clothing.
