Rashes are one of the most common dermatological concerns. Rashes may develop in a variety of ways and due to a number of reasons. When patients have with a rash that is red, itchy, or uncomfortable, they often want an immediate solution. A cure for rashes is not always available, though our Huntington, NY area practice has the experience necessary to evaluate the skin, determine the type of rash present, and provide patients with treatment solutions.

What is a rash?

A rash is an area of the skin where a breakout occurs. It may sometimes be itchy or burn, depending on the type. Rashes develop for a variety of reasons, so it is important for a dermatologist to pinpoint the reason a patient is experiencing the rash and then decide on appropriate treatment.

Can I cure a rash?

Some rashes cannot be “cured” but rather “controlled.” This includes conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, or eczema. These rashes may stem from a medical condition. Other rashes, such as those that develop due to an allergic reaction, are easier to cure as they just require the allergen to be removed. Some patients may try over-the-counter medications for rashes while some may require prescription-strength solutions. There is no single solution for every situation.
