Understanding the causes and symptoms of skin conditions
There are many conditions that affect the skin that can cause concern for our patients. The most common is rashes. Rashes may cause itching, redness, and discomfort that can make patients feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Rashes may be an indication of several conditions, including:
- Contact dermatitis
Some of these conditions are easy to treat, while others may be chronic problems that require continued care by an experienced dermatologist. Drs. Achtman and McConnell of DSA Dermatology encourage patients to learn more about their specific conditions.
What causes a rash?
A rash may be simple, caused by an allergic reaction to a specific irritant, or it may be a sign of a chronic problem. Therefore, it is important for patients who are experiencing rashes to see a professional for an assessment. Only during a physical evaluation by a dermatologist or medical professional can patients get an accurate diagnosis of their specific issue and find a treatment option. This can be done at DSA Dermatology. Patients can schedule an appointment with our team of professionals to get an evaluation completed to assess their rash. Typically, topical treatments are used to address these issues, but in cases that the condition is chronic, a treatment plan is developed.
