The word rash is a broad term used to describe any kind of discoloration or inflammation on the skin. There are various kinds of rashes, such as hives, heat rash, athlete's foot, and contact dermatitis. A rash is usually brought on by an infection that's parasitic, fungal, viral, or bacterial.

It's possible for a rash to be caused by just one thing, but rashes can also be caused by a number of factors working together. Typically, a rash develops when someone comes in contact with something that leads to an allergic reaction or infection. Cleaning compounds, certain lotions or soaps, pollen, and animal dander can cause an allergic response that contributes to the development of a rash. There are thousands of different bacteria and viruses that can cause a rash, too. Those with hay fever, sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma are more likely to experience rashes.
There are several kinds of rashes that present a variety of symptoms. Frequent symptoms include discoloration or redness to the surface of the skin, blisters, itching, inflammation, stinging, and burning. These indicators may be minor or serious and may affect a small or large region of your skin. Rashes can pop up just about anywhere on your body.
Treatments will differ, depending on the case. During your first appointment, Dr. Day will methodically analyze your skin to ascertain a diagnosis and settle on a treatment program. She will take into account the type of rash, its location, and severity to design a customized treatment program. Quite often, an antifungal, antibacterial, or antibiotic topical ointment or gel is utilized to alleviate and address symptoms.
