What is a skin rash?
When it comes to skin rashes, there are many varieties that can develop. Some are environmental, some are chronic, and some are caused as a side effect to certain prescription medications. When a patient, young or old, develops a rash, it is essential that they visit a doctor who has specific training and experience in providing solutions. Dr. Roger Koreen of the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center welcomes patients into his practice for proper diagnosis and treatment of their skin rashes.
Rashes can develop anywhere on the body, and may appear as a simple imperfection on the skin or a wide red, itching rash that can be extremely uncomfortable. During an evaluation with Dr. Roger Koreen, patients will be asked questions about their recent contacts. A medical history is also reviewed, as some conditions can be genetic and develop at a later age. Once the doctor has evaluated the skin and spoken with the patient about their history, he can make a proper diagnosis. Once diagnosed, patients can work with their dermatologist to develop a treatment plan to address the skin rash and prevent it from reoccurring whenever possible.

These are just a handful of the most common types of rashes seen in our practice. However, there are many rare and complicated skin rashes that may develop, so working with a practitioner experienced in offering proper diagnosis and treatment is essential.
Treatment for skin rashes
Due to the large varieties of rashes and the many reasons why they develop, it can be difficult for patients to understand the treatment options available to them for effective treatment. Dr. Roger Koreen and his staff can provide solutions for achieving rash-free skin. Treatment may include anything from topical creams and medications to therapies such as light and laser treatments. Some conditions are chronic and may require routine treatment, while others may be treated and may never return. Additionally, if patients experience a rash that is caused by an allergen or an environmental issue, avoidance can reduce the chances of the rash developing again in the future. This is especially true of contact dermatitis, which is an allergic reaction to something that has come in contact with the skin. Avoidance is a way of keeping these types of rashes from reoccurring on the skin and becoming bothersome.
