The providers at Glendale Dermatology are experienced in providing quick and effective treatments for all kinds of rashes from their practice, located in Glendale, California.
Rashes affect the skin, typically appearing red and scaly while also causing burning or itching sensations. Rashes are caused by allergic reactions, as symptoms of other illnesses, or be the result of a fungal or viral infection.
Athlete’s Foot and jock itch are two very common rashes caused by fungal infections characterized by redness, itching, and scaly, flaky skin. They are typically treated with antifungal cream. Contact dermatitis is a rash caused by inflammation in the skin in an allergic response to a substance the patient touched. Hives are another allergic reaction rash that can last anywhere from a few minutes to several weeks. Keratosis Pilaris is a common rash characterized by rough bumps on the skin, most often appearing on the outer, upper arms. It is harmless, but often considered unattractive and undesirable.
The providers at Glendale Dermatology consider each patient’s case individually and create customized treatment plans to specifically address the unique concerns and symptoms for each patient. While each patient receives individualized care, there are some common themes of treatment. For example, the provider may recommend a regular skin care regime involving gentle soap-free cleansers and a good moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. The provider may help the patient to make lifestyle changes to maintain his or her overall health with a balanced diet, regular exercise and hobbies that help to reduce stress can help to manage outbreaks. The provider may also ask a patient to keep a diary to keep track of diet, exercise, daily activities and the rash flare ups to identify any triggers. This can help to avoidance therapy where the patient takes steps to avoid triggers. The provider may prescribe topical corticosteroids or calcineurin inhibitors to reduce the itch and rash associated with an outbreak. In some instances, phototherapy might be helpful. Phototherapy helps to reduce itch and inflammation and increases vitamin D production and bacteria fighting cells in the skin.
