“Rash” is a general term for a wide variety of skin conditions.
A rash refers to a change that affects the skin and usually appears as a red patch or small bumps or blisters on the skin.
The majority of rashes are harmless and can be treated effectively with over-the-counter anti-itch creams, antihistamines and moisturizing lotions
Sometimes a rash can be related to Lupus or Rosacea, and often times these appear in a butterfly shape or pattern.
Our dermatologists can usually tell the difference between butterfly rashes caused by Lupus or Rosacea.
