Answer

Patients who have had miliaria, especially miliaria profunda, must be aware of the role of heat and humidity in precipitating this condition.

These patients should be advised to wear lightweight clothing, stay out of the sun, avoid exertion in hot weather, and stay in an air-conditioned environment as much as possible.
