A skin rash is the body’s alert message that something is wrong that needs to be fixed. The Total Skin Center understands rashes and can help you determine the causes and the available treatments.
Rashes take many forms but typically they consist of itchy, red bumps or scaly skin that appear all over a person’s body, and stem from many different causes:
- allergy to certain foods, environments or pets.
- touching poisonous plants.
- using certain household detergents, sunscreens, hair products, cosmetics and fabrics such as latex.
- symptoms of infections such as chicken pox, athlete’s foot, yeast infection, sexually transmitted diseases or parasites.
