Are infrared and heat the same?

The answer would be: You've been misguided. There is no special link between heat and infrared radiation, except for the fact that most bodies radiate most of their heat in the infrared spectrum because they don't have enough energy (heat) to radiate at a higher frequency.

Is infrared heat harmful to the body?

The word radiation often scares people and it is true that some types of electromagnetic radiation can be dangerous, such as ultraviolet and x-rays, however remember that visible light (that we see with our eyes) is also a type of electromagnetic radiation – and this, much like infrared is 100% safe!
