What is a rash?

A skin rash is a symptom of something that has irritated your skin or stimulated your immune system response. 


There are many different reasons why you might get a rash, and rashes can have many different features. Your initial visit at Twin Falls Dermatology & Aesthetics, LLC explores the possible causes of your skin symptoms, which might include:


  • Hives or welts
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Bumps
  • Dryness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Burning


Diagnosing a skin rash can be challenging. Laurel reviews your medical history, examines the rash, and may recommend additional testing to identify conditions or allergies that cause rashes.

Which conditions cause rashes?

You can get rashes on occasion or frequently in your lifetime depending on their causes. The main cause of rashes is dermatitis or eczema, which can be triggered by various irritants and allergens. Some examples of allergens and irritants are detergents, foods, bug bites, and medications. 


You can also get a rash from:


  • Plants, like poison oak or poison ivy
  • Bacterial infections
  • Viruses
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Lupus


After making a diagnosis, Laurel explains your condition in detail and helps you review options for treatment. She specializes in personalized care using the most up-to-date options in dermatology. 

How can I manage a rash?

A personalized dermatological care plan can help you manage an existing rash or minimize rashes in the future. Laurel strategizes your treatment based on your diagnosis and the severity of your symptoms. She works with you to find the most effective and affordable treatments for your diagnosis. 


There are a variety of treatments for the many different rash types, including:


  • Hydrocortisone
  • Antihistamines
  • Immunosuppressants
  • Topical steroids


As itchy as it may be, you should avoid scratching a rash as you can break the skin. This gives bacteria the opportunity to enter your skin and cause an infection. Antibiotics can treat infections that occur.


Keep in mind that it can take weeks for your rash to go away entirely. If your symptoms get worse or don’t improve, Laurel can adjust your treatment plan according to your needs.
