Some rashes can seemingly appear overnight while others develop slowly and cause significant discomfort or distress. Whether they are triggered by an allergic reaction or an underlying health condition, it’s important to see an experienced dermatologist when rashes appear anywhere on the body. Persistent rashes that become increasingly uncomfortable are even more of a concern because these might be a sign of a more serious health condition or skin disorder.

Seeing a board-certified dermatologist can help you get relief from the itching and discomfort rashes cause and identify the problem. Rashes are defined as any type of inflammation or discoloration to the skin that distorts the skin’s normal appearance. They can be caused by a fungal, bacterial, viral, or parasitic infection and can spread quickly.

Types of rashes that might require seeing a dermatologist include:

  • Eczema
  • Seborrheic Dermatitis
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Poison Ivy
  • Hives
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Diaper Rash
  • Psoriasis
  • Heat Rash
