Grapevine area dermatologist explains why rashes on the skin may form

07/27/17 | by admin | Categories: Skin Rash

skin rashes treatment from Dr. BryanThere are many types of rashes that can be found on the human body. Determining what type of rash you have may take the assistance of a Grapevine, TX dermatologist. The providers of the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery in Grapevine have years of experience in providing accurate diagnoses for skin rashes.

 

What is a skin rash?

Skin rashes vary greatly from one to another. Some rashes have large pustules that are red and itchy, while others may have small pimples or raised skin. Other rashes may feel warm or may be triggered from foods or activities. To determine what a rash is, it is best to schedule an evaluation with a dermatologist.

 

What rashes are present?

There are so many types of rashes that dermatologists may see on a patient’s skin. They may form due to exposure to a certain chemical or product or because of an internal allergy. Below is a small sampling of common rashes seen at our Grapevine, TX area practice:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Heat rash
  • Pityriasis rosea
  • Impetigo
  • Shingles
  • Ringworm

Treatment

In most cases, topical creams or medications are recommended to apply directly to the rash to reduce or eliminate it. Determining the cause of the rash can help in finding an effective treatment that works with a patient’s specific skin type. Sometimes, rashes are best treated from the inside out with an oral medication. Others may require the removal of a certain trigger such as soaps or detergents, which may be causing a flare-up.
