Feeling itchy or struggling with a rash? Talk to a doctor to assess your rash, craft a treatment plan, and get you the relief you need today
A rash is an area of irritated or swollen skin. Many rashes are itchy, red, painful, and irritated. Some rashes can also lead to blisters or patches of raw skin. Rashes are a symptom of many different medical problems.
Some rashes develop right away. Others form over several days. Although most rashes clear up fairly quickly, others are long-lasting and need long-term treatment.
Because rashes can be caused by many different things, it's important to figure out what kind you have before you treat it. If it is a bad rash, if it does not go away, or if you have other symptoms, you should see your health care provider. Treatments may include moisturizers, lotions, baths, cortisone creams that relieve swelling, and antihistamines, which relieve itching.
From poison ivy to hives and everything in between, skin rashes often can be diagnosed through a telehealth visit. Your doctor can use videoconferencing to visually examine the rash, determine the cause, and prescribe medicine, if necessary.
Virtual Care Can Help! Many common rashes and blisters can be treated at home without the hassle of visiting the doctor.
Telemedicine allows you to have an appointment with a doctor, including a dermatologist, from the comfort and safety of your home using your smartphone or computer. Patients with both new concerns and ones with chronic conditions can be treated through telemedicine.
