Diagnosis and Treatment of All Types of Skin Rashes
Rashes can appear on your skin as red, itching, scaling, blistered, irritated, or painful patches. A rash can be a sign of many different medical problems, and may be localized or widespread. Some rashes develop quickly, while others may evolve over days to weeks.
Chapel Hill Dermatology’s experienced, empathic providers will take the time to listen to your concerns and put all of the pieces of the puzzle together to arrive at a diagnosis and treatment plan that works for you. For any difficult cases, we do not hesitate to consult with one another to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
Although most rashes can be cleared up fairly quickly, some rashes are long lasting and require ongoing therapy.
Skin rashes can be caused by allergic reactions (poison ivy, drug eruptions), chronic irritation or dryness, a genetic predisposition (psoriasis, atopic dermatitis), infection (boils, shingles, fungus, scabies), or can be a sign of more serious internal disease (lupus, kidney or liver disease).
