Rashes

“Rash” is a general term for a wide variety of skin conditions. A rash refers to a change that affects the skin and usually appears as a red patch or small bumps or blisters on the skin. The majority of rashes are harmless and can be treated effectively with over-the-counter anti-itch creams, antihistamines and moisturizing lotions as rash treatment.

Rashes can be a symptom for other skin problems. The most prevalent of these are:

  • Atopic Dermatitis the most common form of eczema.
  • Bacterial Infections such as impetigo.
  • Contact Dermatitis a type of eczema caused by coming into contact with an allergen.
  • Chronic skin problems such as acne, psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.
  • Fungal Infections such as ringworm and yeast infection.
  • Viral Infections such as shingles.

A rash may be a sign of a more serious illness, such as Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, liver disease, kidney disease or some types of cancers. If you experience a rash that does not go away on its own after a few weeks, make an appointment to see one of our dermatologists to have it properly diagnosed for the appropriate rash treatment.
