Rashes

Rashes are patches of skin that are abnormal in color or texture and can look bumpy, scaly, or swollen. Caused by psychological and environmental factors, they can bring about itchiness or pain.

What is it?

Rashes cause changes in the skin's color, texture or feel that may cause irritation or swelling. They are caused by various psychological factors (depression, anxiety, fear, a catastrophic event) and/or environmental factors (air pollution, food carcinogens, pesticides, lead and even prolonged computer screen time). Rashes can also be associated with many conditions including chickenpox, contact dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, and shingles. Recently, some patients have experienced rashes associated with coronavirus infection.


You’re not alone! Rashes affect almost everyone at some point, so try not to worry. It’s common, and — of course — the board-certified team at Associated Dermatologists can help.


The American Academy of Dermatology Association recommend seeking care from a board-certified dermatologist if your experience:


• A rash over most of your body.

• A rash that blisters or turns into open sores or raw skin.

• Fever or illness with a rash.

• A rash that spreads rapidly.

• A painful rash.

• A rash involving the eyes, lips, mouth, or genital skin.


How is it treated?

Treatment depends on the type or cause of the rash. We can approach treatment with medicated creams, topical anti-itch lotions (hydrocortisone), moisturizers, topical anti-fungal creams, oral medications or oral antihistamines and light therapy. While some rashes are more uncomfortable than they are dangerous, others can be a sign of a more serious condition. If your rash needs attention, schedule today with our expert dermatologists in in Berkley, West Bloomfield, Commerce, or Novi, Michigan.
