Any Tips For Reducing Flare Ups In The Summer?

Any Tips For Reducing Flare Ups In The Summer?

With the summer coming and the increase in temperature in my area, I have been having a lot of flare ups in my groin. I go on and off doxycycline, as well as use benzaclin topically. I have gained some weight (that I'm trying to lose) so I have been sweating more. Any tips for preventing or helping flare ups in the summer heat?
