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. Some rashes are not infectious but can become exacerbated when left untreated. If you've discovered a rash that's causing you distress, contact OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA to schedule an appointment with board-certified dermatologist Rachel Day, M.D. She can evaluate your skin and create a treatment program to provide relief for your rash.
"I was so nervous and self conscious about going to the dermatologist for the first time and both Dr. Day and her staff were amazing! Dr. Day was super kind and easy going and professional which made the visit a wonderful experience. I love how thorough she is and how she takes time to explain information to you to make sure you understand. Highly recommend her for your dermatologic needs!"- H.R. / Google / Jun 26, 2020
"I cannot speak too highly of Dr. Day and her staff at OneSkin Dermatology. Everyone there is friendly, courteous, and helpful. I have been seeing Dr. Day for my annual checkup for several years and have been impressed with her thoroughness and professionalism. On an occasion when I needed minor surgery, she performed the procedure so quickly and deftly that she was done before I knew she had started. I also admire the confidence and determination she has shown to leave the big corporate healthcare world and start her own practice. In the past, I had tried several dermatologists before seeing Dr. Day. I am confident she is the finest dermatologist in this area."- D.N. / Google / Jul 03, 2020
"Dr day is absolutely wonderful I went in crying my skin was so terrible she got me right in and spent 45 min with me all the staff were incredibly nice and went above and beyond. My skin has started to clear already from severe rosacea which no one else diagnosed. She is compassionate and goes above and beyond my skin started to look less red and smoother within 2 days def have a ways to go but she does not try to sell you expensive washes or creams she is truly there for her patients. I cannot say enough about the team they have there so polite and understanding not like a reg doctors office very relaxed environment and she really takes her time to explain everything to you.

"Dr. Day is AMAZING!!! I had a baby in November and my skin took a huge toll. Acne flared up and I didn’t know what to do anymore. So I broke down and made an appointment with OneSkin Dermotology. When I first met Dr. Day I was excited, when you see a young doctor you think of new medicine and new treatments. So I was really looking forward to see what my treatment plan would be. Not to mention, the office is BEAUTIFUL and relaxing! She made a wonderful plan for my skin and recommended drug store products that work just as good as the expensive ones! So far we are about a month and a half in and my skin is night and day difference and I am so pleased! We still have some work to do, but it looks amazing! Thank you to Dr. Day and her wonderful and kind team! 100% recommend! Worth the money, but honestly the price is totally affordable!"- C.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020

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.
Rashes Treatment Options
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.
