A rash is an outbreak on the skin that is red, bumpy, and itchy. In extreme cases, there can even be welts and blisters on the skin. Rashes may be small and in one area or cover large areas on 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 get this skin issue.
There are a variety of causes for skin rashes we encounter daily. Some may be due to irritating chemicals, fragrances, bodily infections, allergic reactions, parasites, fungus, and even the environment. Millions across the world will be affected by this type of skin outbreak and many will need a dermatologist for proper treatment.
Treatment for rashes may be as simple as removing the irritant, but when that isn’t enough, your dermatologist can prescribe medication to alleviate symptoms. Tennessee Telederm is licensed to write prescriptions for rash medication without you ever coming inside our offices!
