Medical Dermatology : Rashes

Rashes can occur in many varieties. The most common rashes dermatologists see are atopic dermatitis or eczema and poison ivy or oak. Eczema can occur in children and in some cases get better as they grow older. In adults, this can show up as hand or foot rashes that easily flare up. There are a lot of new treatments available now for these conditions, including foams and sprays that are much more easily spread on the skin than the older greasy ointments and creams. Also, non-steroid treatments are available within the last few years that can help us avoid some of the side effects of steroid creams. Poison ivy or oak, if properly diagnosed and treated, does not have to be the severely itchy blistery widespread rash if often becomes without early therapy.
