Common rash symptoms & treatment
A rash is a change in the color and/or texture of the skin. Rashes are often due to inflammation, which can have many different causes, such as contact with an allergen or a virus. Rashes typically leave the skin feeling irritated and can usually be controlled with over the counter medications.Pick Appointment Time

HOW TO TREAT A RASH
Because there are many different root causes for a rash, the treatment may be different depending on the type of rash. This is especially so for a rash that is contagious, meaning it can spread to others. However, in general, once a rash is identified, it can be treated with the appropriate topical or oral medication. Although some rashes may go away on their own.
