Our skin has many jobs. Not only does it work to stop our bodies from dehydrating, it also helps regulate our temperature and can protect our joints from bumps and small injuries.
The skin is also a good indicator of our health too and any changes in its appearance can signal something isn’t right. Skin rashes, for example occur when the texture, color, and temperature of the skin has changed. This can happen for many reasons, such as allergy or infection.
The treatment you receive for skin rash depends on the cause. Rashes caused by minor allergies for example can be treated with over-the-counter antihistamines. If your rash is taking a while to go away and is feeling itchy, your Healthcare provider may suggest a lotion to soothe the skin as it heals.
