Symptoms of Rashes
There are many different types of rashes that exhibit varying symptoms. Common symptoms include redness or discoloration to the skin's surface, blisters, inflammation, itching, burning, and stinging. These symptoms can be mild to severe and can cover a large or small area of the skin. A rash can develop almost anywhere on the body where an infection has contaminated the skin.
What causes rashes?
There isn't necessarily any one cause to a rash as there can be multiple factors. Usually, a rash develops when a person comes into contact with something that causes an infection or allergic reaction. Things like cleaning chemicals, certain soaps or lotions, animal dander, and pollen can result in an allergic reaction that leads to the development of a rash. There are hundreds of different viruses and bacteria that can play a part as well. If someone has asthma, hay fever, sensitive skin, or allergies, they are often more prone to acquiring rashes.
Treatment for Rashes
Treatment will be different for everyone. During your initial consultation, one of our physician assistants will carefully examine the skin to determine a diagnosis and treatment plan. She will take into consideration the specific type of rash, location, and severity to create an individualized treatment regimen. Often times, an antibacterial, antifungal, or antibiotic topical cream or gel will be used to ease and manage symptoms. In addition, we may also recommend that a cold compress be used at home to aid in relieving severe itching.
