Treatment for Rashes

Treatment for Rashes

Most people have dealt with some form of a rash in their life. Rashes are a general term for a large range of skin conditions that can typically affect the color, texture, or appearance of your skin. Rashes can be uncomfortable and cause you to feel itchy and irritated in your own skin. Your dermatologists at Atlanta Center for Dermatologic Diseases in Alpharetta, Cumming, Roswell, and Sandy Springs, GA, can explain how rashes could be treated and how you can start feeling comfortable again in no time.

Treating Your Rash

There are many types of rashes that our dermatologists can treat. Rashes can be caused by various factors, so each rash is treated differently. For allergic reactions, our dermatologist might recommend using an antihistamine to help with the reaction and soothe any other symptoms that might be occurring as well.

Eczema is a very common type of rash that can leave your skin feeling dry, itchy, and irritated. You should gently cleanse the skin with warm water and apply a fragrance-free lotion to the area. It’s important to keep the area hydrated and moisturized when your skin is feeling dry and flakey.

If you’re dealing with a chronic problem like acne or psoriasis, you may need to be taking medication to ease your symptoms. This can also stop further outbreaks from happening. Different forms of light therapy can also ease these types of rashes.

For all rashes, you should avoid putting any cosmetic lotions on the rash and be sure to not use hot water while cleaning the area. The area should be covered and not exposed to the air for further irritation.
