What are common causes of rashes?

Rashes can have numerous causes. You may have a chronic condition, such as eczema, or have a one-off rash triggered by stress, hormones, allergens, food, or medication. Exposure to heat, contact with harsh chemicals, and dry skin can also cause rashes to occur.

Other common rashes include:

  • Seborrheic dermatitis, characterized by redness and scales on the forehead, scalp, and external ears
  • Nummular eczema, a weepy, oozy rash often caused by dry skin
  • Psoriasis
  • Granuloma annulare, a chronic skin condition that consists of a circular-shaped rash with reddish bumps
  • Pityriasis rosea, a mild outbreak characterized by large, pink patches on your back or chest
  • Hives due to reactions to medications or stress

Poison ivy, hives, eczema, and athlete’s foot are other common rashes that Dr. Tadicherla is skilled at treating.

How is a rash diagnosed?

If symptoms of a rash are unbearable or last more than a few days, you should seek medical evaluation.

Because rashes can have so many causes, Dr. Tadicherla takes a comprehensive health and family history to help narrow down the cause of your particular situation. She’ll examine the rash thoroughly and ask for details about your symptoms and the severity of your discomfort. Sometimes, the appearance of the rash helps her with diagnosis too. She’ll look closely at the rashes density, size, tenderness, shape, and even the temperature. Location and distribution of the rash also help with diagnosis. She may also order specific laboratory tests and procedures to identify the cause.

How is a rash treated?

If your rash seems to be caused by a trigger, whether that’s a particular food, detergent, or chemical, the obvious solution is to avoid it. In the meantime, Dr. Tadicherla can offer therapies, such as topical agents and oral medications, to reduce your symptoms and alleviate discomfort.

If your rash is attributed to a chronic condition, such as psoriasis or eczema, she’ll develop a specific treatment plan to help you manage your symptoms. A plan includes lifestyle therapies, such as proper moisturization and avoidance of aggravating triggers, as well as oral, injectable, or topical medications and even phototherapy.
