A rash is an outbreak on the skin that is red, bumpy, scaly or itchy. In some cases, there can even be welts and blisters on the skin. Rashes may be small and in one area or cover large areas of the body. These skin conditions have no set duration and can clear up in as little as a day, weeks at a time, or crop up chronically. There are many causes of rashes. Causes that create rashes on one person may have no effect on another. Age is also not a factor, adults and children alike can develop this skin issue.
Most skin rashes are caused by a variety of common daily irritants including irritating chemicals, fragrances, skin infections, allergic reactions, bite reactions, parasites and fungus. Many patients are affected by skin rashes and will need to visit a dermatologist or derm expert for proper treatment. In Tennessee, rashes can be treated online at Tennessee Telederm.
Treatment for rashes may be as simple as removing the irritant, but when that isn’t enough, your dermatology provider can prescribe medication to relieve symptoms. Kristen Stirling, Nurse Practitioner, and founder of Tennessee Telederm can diagnose them through telehealth appointments and if needed, write prescriptions to treat them. So you don’t have to waste time visiting a doctor’s office or dealing with Nashville traffic.
