What Causes Rashes?
Rashes can be caused by many different factors, and are accompanied by a variety of symptoms. Most often, however, rashes are red patches of skin that contain bumps or blisters. They may also be itchy, burning or scaly. Some of the most common causes of rashes include:
- Contact with external materials (like plants)
- Physical irritation
How are Rashes Treated?
The difficulty in treating rashes is that their underlying cause must first be identified. While many rashes will resolve on their own over time, patients with severe or persistent rashes may benefit from consulting a dermatologist. During this visit, dermatologists will examine the shape, color, texture and location of the rash to identify its cause. As outlined above, a rash could be caused by a simple irritation of the skin or a more complex skin condition. Once the cause is identified, patients are typically prescribed a topical medication to provide relief and assist the healing process. At times, a rash may require a skin biopsy for further information from the dermatopathologist to aid in diagnosis.
How Much Does Rash Treatment Cost?
The cost of rash treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Rash Treatment?
In most cases, once the cause of the rash is identified, treatment is as simple as prescribing the appropriate medication and using it as advised. In these cases, patients can expect to find relief from rashes as early as within a few days. Patients who are experiencing recurring rashes or discover that their rashes are caused by an underlying skin condition may need further treatment to fully address their symptoms and continue managing rashes in the future.
