What Are Rashes?
A rash is a common term for the development of widespread skin irritation. Rashes come in many shapes and forms and can be caused by a variety of factors. Because of this, a rash can sometimes be difficult to classify without the help of a medical professional. Dr. Siddiqui and the expert medical team at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic are happy to sit down with you, evaluate your rash, and develop a personalized treatment plan for you based on the type of rash you have and/or what caused your rash to develop.
What Causes Rashes?
Because the term “rash” is very vague, there are multiple different situations that may cause the skin irritation a patient is experiencing. The most common causes for a rash that our patients experience include:
- Contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is a skin irritation that develops as a reaction to a new substance. This type of rash can be caused by the use of a new soap, wearing a new material, exposure to a chemical, and more.
- Rashes are a common side effect of prescription medications. While a rash may be a temporary side effect, it can also be an indicator that the patient is allergic to the medication itself.
- Oftentimes, bacterial and fungal infections can cause a rash to develop.
- Autoimmune Conditions. Autoimmune conditions occur when the cells of the immune system begin fighting healthy cells. Some autoimmune conditions like psoriasis can cause uncomfortable rashes.
How Do I Know if I Have a Rash?
While every rash is different, they are oftentimes characterized by:
- Raised, red bumps
- Dry, scaly patches
- Itching or burning
- Welts or hives
