A rash is an area of irritated or swollen skin. Many rashes are itchy, red, and can become painful. Some rashes cause irritation in the form of small bumps. The question becomes, what is causing it? Is it the result of having touched an irritant such as a chemical or something you’re allergic to, like poison ivy? Did it appear out of nowhere, or develop the moment your skin touched whatever caused it? Did the rash develop over time? Is it caused by something you ate? Is it something more serious? The good news is you don’t have to wonder. Contact our office to schedule your consultation and exam today so we can take the guesswork out of the equation.
