A rash is any change to the skin texture or colour. This may cause itch, soreness or look aesthetically displeasing. Rashes are very common and affect most of us at some stage of life. The most common rashes are dry skin and eczema – where red, itchy, scaly patches may develop. There are many other rashes (in fact, over a thousand variations), so it is important to get a correct diagnosis from a Dermatologist.
It is usually possible to control or clear most rashes with the correct treatment or combination of treatments. The type and duration of treatment will vary according to the individual situation.
If you suffer from a rash or itching then please arrange to see one of our Dermatologists who will be happy to help.
“The starting point in getting a rash resolved is to establish the correct diagnosis. This involves meeting a Dermatologist for a consultation.”
