Unfortunately, skin rashes and allergic reactions are very common in people of all ages. They cause itchiness, scaliness, discomfort, and sometimes even swelling. They also can look very similar to the untrained eye.  Our team at Greenwich Point Dermatology in Greenwich, CT, has extensive training in diagnosing various types of rashes and delivering the most effective treatment option based on the severity, location, and type of rash.  We are proud to offer treatments for rashes to patients in Greenwich, Stamford, and the neighboring communities in Fairfield County.

What are Rashes?

Rashes are patches of itchy, swollen, scaly, and sometimes bumpy skin that may appear as a result of an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, rashes are a common condition among patients of all ages and ethnicities. Dr. Sarah Dolder and her team of medical professionals are happy to provide their patients with minimally invasive treatments to help get rid of unwanted rashes and prevent them from appearing in the future.

What do Rashes Look Like?

Rashes on the skin may look different for each patient. We typically ask patients to be aware of skin that may appear:

  • Scaly or dry
  • Bumpy or welted
  • Red and inflamed
  • Swollen

What Causes a Rash?

The cause of a rash varies from person to person. Most rashes come from sensitivity to outside or environmental sources, such as perfumes, detergents, soaps, plant life, or clothing material. Rashes may also be caused by a food allergy. Our team of expert providers may ask you a series of questions about your recent past to help you determine the cause of your rash before treatment.
