Rashes Overview

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.

What Causes Rashes?

Rashes can be caused by infections such as fungal, bacterial, parasitic, or viral. Your rash can also be due to an allergic reaction to plants, medication, or food.

Are There Different Types of Rashes?

A rash is a term for a collection of skin conditions. Eczema and hives are the most common types of rashes. However, there are thousands of possible rashes which is why advanced patch testing is necessary to isolate the root of the problem.
