What Are Rashes?
Rashes are patches of irritated skin. A rash can be red, bumpy, itchy, blistered, dry, painful, or a combination of these traits. It can be difficult to treat rashes at home because they can develop for many reasons. If you have a rash that has lasted for more than a few days, it’s probably time to see a dermatologist to determine the cause of the rash and an appropriate treatment.
What is Contact Dermatitis?
Contact dermatitis is a form of eczema that causes a rash to develop in response to an irritant. This irritant can be a chemical found in products like soaps or lotions, or even a material found on a piece of jewelry. If you are experiencing a rash due to contact dermatitis, avoiding the irritant is usually enough to cause the rash to fade. If the rash persists, however, you may want to go to a dermatologist to find an effective treatment solution.
How Are Rashes Treated?
The first step in properly treating a rash is determining the cause. To do this, we will analyze the appearance of the rash. We may also ask about your diet, daily activities, and any beauty products that you actively use. Once we determine the cause of the rash, we will be able to provide an effective treatment. This most often includes either topical or oral medications to relieve the symptoms and prevent future rashes.
When Will I Notice Results from Rash Treatment?
Within a week of beginning rash treatment, you should notice a reduction in the severity of the rash as your skin begins to clear up. It is important to continue your prescribed treatment until the rash is completely gone.
