About Skin Rashes

A rash is a broad term used to describe any type of discoloration or inflammation on the skin. Rashes may include skin conditions, such as hives, heat rash, athlete's foot, and contact dermatitis. Often, rashes happen because of an infection that's fungal, parasitic, viral, or bacterial. Certain rashes aren't infectious, but others may spread when left untreated. For patients experiencing a rash that's causing distress, contact Houston Premier Dermatology in Houston, TX and schedule a consultation with Dr. Catherine Papasakelariou. She will evaluate your skin condition and develop a treatment plan that helps relieve your symptoms.

Causes

There isn't necessarily any single cause of a rash because of the many varying factors. Generally, a rash develops when someone comes into contact with something that leads to an infection or allergic reaction. Things like cleaning compounds, certain soaps or lotions, pollen, and animal dander can cause an allergic response that contributes to the beginning of a rash. Thousands of different viruses and bacteria might play a part as well. Patients with hay fever, sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma are more likely to experience rashes.

Rash Symptoms

Rashes may have distinct types and exhibit varying symptoms. Rashes have various textures and may feel dry, wet, bumpy, blistered, or cracked to the touch. Frequent symptoms include redness or discoloration to the surface of the skin, blisters, inflammation, itching, stinging, and burning. Patients can experience mild to severe symptoms, and the rash could cover a large or small region of your body. A rash may develop just about anywhere on your body where bacteria or infection has contaminated your skin.

Treatment Options

Treatments will vary for all patients and depends on the type of rash you have. During your consultation, Dr. Papasakelariou will methodically inspect your skin to determine a diagnosis and create a treatment plan. She will assess the kind of rash, its location, and severity. To help determine the treatment, she may perform various tests to determine the type of rash, such as scraping the skin or performing a biopsy. After diagnosing the problem, Dr. Papasakelariou might prescribe medication or give you instructions on how to manage it with other treatments. However, an antibacterial, antifungal, or antibiotic topical cream or gel is generally used to alleviate and address symptoms.
