Do You Have One of These Rashes?

If you have a rash, there is no question that you have it. The itchy, red bumps on your skin outbreak, seemingly out of the blue. It drives you crazy and gives you trouble when you try to sleep, sit, or just exist. So what are the most common types of rashes out there, and what causes them?

Before we begin, you should know that diagnosing your own rash is not recommended. If it is bad enough for you to take notice, you should be seeking professional help.

Atopic dermatitis is by far the most common type of skin rashes. It is most common in children and is commonly known as eczema. This type of rash is hereditary. While children are a vast majority of the cases, it actually does appear in adults sometimes, but in different places. The common characteristic is the chapped cheeks and patches of scaly skin on the arms, hands, legs, and torso. For adults, it more often rears its ugly head on the gentiles and hands, but can appear almost anywhere.

A different type of rash is called “contact dermatitis”. It is started by a person coming in contact with something that the person has a reaction to. It can be anything from a chemical reaction or an allergic reaction. Some of the most common forms of this are poison ivy and poison oak. A typical treatment for this type of rash is to simply put ointments on it. These are highly communicable, so if you find yourself with these symptoms, you should steer clear of others.
