Rashes

Rashes

The term ‘rashes’ covers a broad range of skin conditions, typically referring to various changes in the skin that manifest as red patches, bumps, or blisters. While most of these are quite harmless, they can sometimes be symptoms of underlying health issues and skin problems.

At Mohave Dermatology, we offer tailored rashes treatments. Our experts are here to help you understand the cause of your infection, what your treatment options are, and the best way to manage them.

What Causes Rashes?

There are different types of rashes, but the commonest ones include bacterial infections, viral infections, fungal infections, contact dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis. Several different things can cause rashes, and most are accompanied by skin irritation. They can appear when the skin comes in contact with materials or substances such as:

  • Lotions
  • Soaps
  • Harsh chemicals
  • Poisonous plants
  • Latex
  • Metals and jewelry

Parasites or insects can also cause rashes as can prolonged exposure to moisture and heat. Sometimes certain medications can trigger rashes too. They can be signs of chronic skin problems, viral infections, or some other severe condition or disease.

The Symptoms of Rashes

Depending on the individual, a rash can have different symptoms and can vary in appearance. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Blistering and bumpiness
  • Cracks, swelling, and redness
  • Itchiness
  • Warm to the touch

If you are experiencing a rash in conjunction with other symptoms like a fever or shortness of breath, it’s essential that you schedule an appointment with one of our dermatologists as soon as possible. It is necessary to understand that rashes can sometimes indicate more serious health conditions such as liver disease, thyroid disease, or kidney disease as well.

In some cases, severe itching or rashes may also surface at the time cancer develops. If these symptoms do not subside on their own within a week or two, it’s necessary that an experienced dermatologist evaluates you for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Rashes Treatment at Mohave Dermatology

Skin rash treatments can vary widely depending on what the symptoms, type, and causes of the rash are. If you have a rash that doesn’t disappear after one to two weeks, do not delay in calling us for an appointment to discuss your specific condition. Our dermatologist team is here to help you in every way possible and will provide the best treatment.

The expert will have a detailed discussion about your condition and provide an accurate diagnosis. The will also clear all your doubts and help you understand what your treatment options are.  We have the experience and knowledge required to examine you visually & determine what type of rash you have. Once they have identified the rash, your dermatologist will devise a proper treatment for your specific condition. We offer a range of treatments at our office, including:

  • Topical anti-fungal medications
  • Oral antihistamines
  • Topical anti-itch medications
  • Moisturizing creams and/or lotions
  • Light therapy

If your dermatologist suspects that the rash is the result of an allergic reaction, they may conduct additional tests. Skin rashes can be extremely troublesome. Not only do they itch but can also cause embarrassment and make you tremendously self-conscious about your overall appearance.

As reputed skin experts, Mohave Dermatology has the expertise needed to help you manage this condition. If you notice persistent rashes that aren’t being controlled by OTC lotions or creams, contact us without delay. We will address your particular skin issue and provide the best treatment.

10 Do’s and Don’ts
From Dermatologists

To help control oily skin, dermatologists recommend the following tips:

1.Apply sunscreen every day before you go outdoors.
Sunscreen is the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth. It really can slow down skin aging. It can also help prevent skin cancer. Look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection, SPF 30 (or higher), and water resistance. While it’s important to protect infants’ skin from the sun, the AAD recommends applying sunscreen ONLY to children who are 6 months and older.

2.Don’t smoke.
Smoking speeds up how quickly your skin ages. If you smoke, your wounds will also take longer to heal. And research shows that smoking worsens some skin diseases, including psoriasis and hidradenitis suppurativa.

3.Check your skin for skin cancer.
Skin self-exams can help you find skin cancer early when it’s highly treatable. If you notice a spot that differs from the others, or one that changes, itches, or bleeds, make an appointment to see a dermatologist.

4.Use a self-tanner if you like looking tanned.
Anytime you tan indoors or outside, you prematurely age your skin. You also increase your risk of getting skin cancer. A self-tanner can give you the look you want without the risks. To keep your skin healthy, you want to protect it from the sun even when using a self-tanner.

5.Use skin care products that match your skin’s needs.
What’s your skin type — oily, dry, normal, combination, or sensitive? Do you have a skin condition? Using products formulated for your skin’s needs will help your skin look and feel its best.

6.Resist the urge to scrub your skin clean.
If you’ve been sweating heavily or have a serious acne flare, it may seem natural to scrub your skin. Don’t! Scrubbing irritates your skin, which can worsen any skin condition, including acne.

7.Wash your face when waking, before bed, and after sweating.
Washing when you wake up removes the dirt and bacteria that settle on your face while sleeping. Before bed, you want to remove makeup and grime, such as smog, smoke, or dirt, which may have landed on your skin.

8.Gently wash your face.
Gentle cleansing helps skin look its best. To gently cleanse your face, wet it with lukewarm water. Then apply a mild cleanser, gently applying the cleanser in a circular motion with your fingertips. Finish by completely rinsing off the cleanser and gently patting your face dry with a clean towel.

9.Stress less.
Finding healthy ways to manage stress can help your skin, too. Some skin diseases like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (eczema) often appear for the first time when someone feels really stressed. Stress can also cause flare-ups of many skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.

10.See a dermatologist if you dislike something about your skin.
When it comes to our skin, dermatologists are the experts. These doctors diagnose and treat thousands of different skin diseases. They also have the expertise needed to help people safely rejuvenate and care for their skin. (taken from the American Academy of Dermatology)
