Treating Rashes in Kissimmee & Windermere, FL

Skin rashes are a common, and often uncomfortable problem. Our board-certified dermatologists at Stokes Dermatology are experts at diagnosing the cause of your skin rash and offering an effective skin rash treatment to help you enjoy clear skin.

Skin Rash Causes

Skin rashes can be caused by several different factors. These are some of the most common causes of a skin rash:

  • Heat and humidity can appear as pimple-like blemishes caused by blocked pores
  • Allergies to plants, flowers, and pollens, which can appear as a diffuse, red, itchy rash
  • Medication-related rashes, which can be caused by some antibiotics, result in a rash covering large areas of your body
  • Contact dermatitis is a non-itchy rash caused by chemical exposure to your skin
  • Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, often occurs in folds of skin, on your torso, behind your knees, or on your neck and face

Home Treatments for a Skin Rash

For a mild rash, you may be able to get relief with over-the-counter remedies, including:

  • Anti-itch creams, lotions, or sprays
  • Oatmeal baths like Aveeno
  • Topical and oral antihistamine medications

When to Visit Your Dermatologist for Skin Rash Treatment

You should visit your dermatologist for skin rash treatment if:

  • The rash is getting worse
  • The rash is spreading to other areas
  • The rash is accompanied by other symptoms, including fever, swelling, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, body aches, and difficulty swallowing

Treatment for Skin Rashes

Depending on what is causing your rash, your dermatologist has several treatment solutions, including:

  • Prescription-strength oral and topical antihistamine medications to relieve itching
  • Steroid medications to reduce swelling and inflammation
  • Lotions or creams containing antibiotics or cortisone to eliminate infection and swelling
  • Laser therapy to eliminate scaly patches caused by psoriasis, eczema, and other chronic conditions
