Atopic Dermatitis Is An Ongoing (Chronic) Condition That Causes Itchy, Inflamed Skin.

Most Often It Appears As Patches On The Face, Neck, Trunk Or Limbs.

It Tends To Flare Up Periodically And Then Subside For A Time.

The Rash May Form A Pattern On The Back That Resembles The Outline Of A Christmas Tree.

Pityriasis Rosea Usually Resolves Without Treatment Within Six To Eight Weeks, But It Can Last Several Months.

Medicated Lotions May Lessen Itchiness And May Speed The Disappearance Of The Rash.

Often, Though, No Treatment Is Required.

3. Contact Dermatitis -

Avoiding The Irritant Or Allergen Allows The Rash To Heal, And Medications May Improve Symptoms.

A Drug Rash May Be Either A Side Effect Of A Drug Or An Allergic Reaction To A Medication.

While Any Medication May Cause A Drug Rash, Common Culprits Include Antibiotics, Anti-Seizure Medications And Water Pills (Diuretics). Some Drugs Are More Likely To Produce A Rash If The Skin Is Exposed To Sunlight.

A Drug Rash, Which Usually Starts Within The First Week Of Taking A New Medication, Often Begins As Discrete Red Spots That Spread, Covering Large Areas Of The Body.

The Rash Usually Resolves In Days To Weeks After Discontinuing The Medication.

The Affected Skin May Be Sensitive Or Painful, And Severe Cases Can Result In Oozing Sores, Cracked Skin Or Bleeding.

The Warm, Moist Environment, Coupled With Skin Irritation, Can Easily Result In Bacterial Or Fungal Infections At The Site.

Intertrigo Usually Clears Up If You Find A Way To The Affected Areas As Clean And Dry As Possible.

Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing, And Use Powder To Reduce Skin-To-Skin Friction In Affected Areas.

Over A Few More Days, The Blisters Break, Leaving Behind Ulcers That Dry And Form Crusts.

Shingles Usually Resolves Within A Few Weeks.

Antiviral Drugs May Lessen Pain Or Decrease The Likelihood Of Persistent Pain After The Rash Has Healed.

A Shingles Vaccine Is Recommended For Most People Older Than Age 60.

Swimmer's Itch (Cercarial Dermatitis) Is A Burning Or Itchy Rash Caused By An Allergic Reaction To A Waterborne Parasite That Burrows Into The Top Layer Of Skin.

The Rash Usually Produces Tiny Bumps Or Blisters.

Because Swimmer's Itch Is An Allergic Reaction, Repeated Exposure To Infected Water Can Increase A Person's Sensitivity And Result In Worse Symptoms With Each Subsequent Exposure.

Swimmer's Itch Isn't Serious And Usually Resolves Without Medical Treatment Within One Week.
