Rashes & Allergic Reactions
Rash & Skin Allergy Treatment Options
Rashes range in severity and can be caused by many different issues. It is essential to understand the type of rash on your skin to relieve the discomfort and treat it appropriately. Some of the most common rashes are infectious, caused by a skin allergy, autoimmune, or caused by environmental irritants or plants. Some types of rashes are hives, eczema, psoriasis, lupus, and contact dermatitis.
To administer the correct treatment, your doctor will need to make a proper diagnosis. This will involve analyzing your medical history, the location and pattern of the rash, its duration, and occupational exposures. Depending on the case, additional testing may be necessary.
Depending on the cause of the rash or skin allergy, your dermatologist may opt for any of the following treatment options:
Steroid Creams and Ointments
Gentle Skin Care
