So You Have a Rash
Whether it is during our childhood, teenage, or adult years we all have come across problems with our skin that that make us feel distraught by how its appearance makes us feel around others or because of the pain and itching that may come with it. A rash can appear for a number of reasons, and thankfully, most are self limiting and harmless. Those that are recurrent or take months to go away need that extra love. Finding out what your triggers are for developing a rash is also just as important because identifying and abstaining from it to a certain degree or completely can be enough to get rid a rashes for some individuals.
What Causes Them?
Rashes are not just a sore to look at, they can be a pain with all the itching it can cause too. Exposure to a certain substance you are allergic to, suffering from extremely dry skin or suffering from a skin condition can cause cumbersome rashes to appear. Genetics can play a strong role in how it looks and its severity. Examples of common skin conditions are eczema, psoriasis, folliculitis, and contact dermatitis -- all of which are types of inflammatory disorders. Being sensitive to the sun is also another factor than can cause heat rashes for some people.
The Differences in the Look of a Rash
There are numerous reasons why a rash forms on the skin, and there are just as many appearances they can take on too. The hot redness that you may feel is called erythema whereas the flat. This is seen in lupus erythematosus (LES) and rosacea along with the inflammatory skin disorders mentioned earlier. Abnormally colored spots are known as macules that may be seen in shades of red, a deep purple or red as well as brown and white. Individuals may develop them as a reaction to medication or to a viral complication from rubella or measles (this is rare today with vaccines available).
Macules are most common in those who have vitiligo, a strain of versicolor, or a mole. If you notice your rash has a small bump, they are called papules; larger bumps are nodules. Acne, warts, scabies, or suffering from insect bites are a few examples of papules. Nodules might come in the form of a cyst, lipoma and rheumatoid arthritis. Rashes that take on a flaky, shiny appearance are called scales can be seen in psoriasis. Determining which type of rash you are suffering from can also be helpful in getting the proper treatment. Pustules are a sign of a viral infection due to cold sores or bacterial infections due to impetigo. While none of these conditions are secluded in one classification and may show in others, it is beneficial to understand how they typically arise.
