All Skin Rashes Q & A


What causes skin rashes?

All skin rashes vary from mild to severe and can be acute or chronic (long-lasting). In any case, one thing’s for certain: rashes are uncomfortable and even embarrassing. If you have a skin rash, it could stem from:

  • Eczema or psoriasis
  • Chronic hives
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Exposure to poison ivy
  • Measles, shingles, or chickenpox
  • Skin, food, environmental, or other type of allergies

You can develop rashes anywhere on your body. To make matters worse, you can sometimes spread a rash to different areas of your body if you’re not careful. This is why you should never ignore a rash and seek immediate medical attention as soon as your rash starts.

 

When should I see a dermatologist for a skin rash?

Since rashes are signs that your skin is inflamed for some unknown reason, it’s important to head into Advanced Dermatology Associates no matter how minor or manageable your rash may seem. Make an appointment right away if your rash is:

  • Causing pain
  • Oozing or weeping
  • Not improving
  • Spreading to other areas
  • Progressing or getting worse
  • Associated with hives or swelling

The team at Advanced Dermatology Associates thoroughly diagnoses you and gets to the root of all types of skin rashes, so you can expect fast, effective relief.

 

What is the treatment for a skin rash?
