What is a Rash?
A rash is simply a reaction on the skin to something. It can be caused by anything from a contact allergy to a more severe skin condition. It is characterized by raised bumps on an area of the skin that may be inflamed and itch. A rash may appear on its own or as part of a more severe condition.
What Causes a Rash?
In general, a rash is most often a symptom of another skin condition. It is typically related to an allergic reaction to something in the environment but can be part of a more serious skin condition, such as rosacea, psoriasis, or a virus that manifests itself through a rash.
What are Rash Treatments?
Mild rashes are usually a symptom of contact dermatitis and may be treated with prescription creams or ointments that relieve the itching and urge the healing process. More serious rashes, such as those that accompany skin conditions including eczema, rosacea or psoriasis, require more extensive treatments; however, it is necessary to determine the cause of the rash before treating it.
What is Involved in Rash Treatments?
For serious rashes, laser and light treatments are often used to treat the underlying condition. Depending on the laser or light energy used, handheld devices target the affected areas and send light energy through the skin to diminish or eliminate the skin condition along with the rash. Before treating a rash and its underlying condition, we evaluate and diagnose your condition so that we can tailor an effective light and laser treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rash Treatments?
If you notice a rash that is painful or itchy and are unsure of the cause, it is important to have the rash and surrounding skin evaluated. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, we can examine your skin and determine if you are a candidate for rash treatment and which one is best for your skin condition.
