ADULT RASHES

There are many types of skin rashes. A rash is an outbreak of many red bumps or patches on the body. Many conditions can cause an itchy rash. In adults, several types of skin inflammation, various allergic reactions (contact dermatitis), and sometimes infection with a mite or virus can be the cause of a new rash on the skin. Determining that the skin change is recent (generally happening for the first time and lasting less than 1-2 weeks) helps to narrow the possible causes for the rash.

There are some basic measures that can speed up recovery and ease some of the discomfort:

  • Use mild soap– not scented. These soaps are sometimes advertised for sensative skin, or for baby skin.
  • Avoid washing with hot water – opt for warm.
  • Try to allow the rash to breathe. Do not cover with a Band-Aid or bandage.
  • Do not rub the rash dry, pat it.
  • If the rash is dry, for instance, in eczema, use unscented moisturizers
  • Do not use any cosmetics or lotions that may be causing the rash – for instance, newly purchased items.
  • Avoid scratching to lessen the risk of infection.
  • Cortisone creams that can be purchased over-the-counter or online may ease itching.
  • Calamine can relieve some rashes, e.g. poison ivy, chickenpox, and poison oak.
