About Rashes

A rash is a general term to describe any kind of inflammation or discoloration to the skin. There are many sorts of rashes, including hives, heat rash, athlete's foot, and contact dermatitis.

Causes

There isn't necessarily any sole cause of a rash since there can be multiple aspects. Ordinarily, a rash develops when someone comes into contact with something that causes an infection or allergic reaction. Things, like cleaning chemicals, certain soaps or lotions, animal dander, and pollen, can result in an allergic reaction that leads to the beginning of a rash. There are hundreds of different viruses and bacteria that could play a part as well. Those with hay fever, sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma are often more prone to acquire rashes.

Symptoms

There are several distinct types of rashes that exhibit varying symptoms. Frequent symptoms include redness or discoloration to the skin, blisters, inflammation, itching, burning, and stinging. These symptoms can be mild to severe and can cover a large or small area of the body. A rash can happen almost anywhere on the body where bacteria or infection has contaminated the skin.
