What are Rashes?
A rash is an inflammation or discoloration that distorts the skin’s regular appearance. They can come and go throughout the face and body. Typically, these outbreaks are not harmful on their own, but they can be a sign of something more serious.
Rashes can occur for a variety of reasons. Causes of skin rashes can be as benign and common as irritation from heat and sweat, or a sign of something as serious as an allergy or autoimmune disease. Given the many different causes of skin rashes, it’s important to have an experienced dermatology provider examine your rash and give you a personalized treatment plan.

How Can I Treat Rashes?
We can help patients who are bothered by tenacious rashes identify the problem through advanced patch testing or sometimes a biopsy. Your Levy Dermatology Providers use the latest treatments and techniques to quickly and effectively help you restore your skin’s optimal health.
Once the cause of your skin rash is determined, your provider may prescribe topical medication, oral medications, antibiotics or injectable medications. In some cases, laser treatment may be used to address the redness of the rash.
Can Rashes Be Prevented?
If the rash is a result of a disease or allergy, treating the concern and avoiding the allergen can prevent rashes from forming.
