Treatments for Rashes in Berkeley and Dublin

Controlling Skin Outbreaks

It’s never a pleasant experience when a rash appears on our skin causing puss-filled, itchy bumpy, or flat appearances. Our skin is complicated and reacts to various infections such as allergic and medication reactions. There are many treatments for all of these kinds of rashes depending on the severity and location. If you’re not a trained medical professional it may look normal, however, it’s critical to consult with the provider if your rash becomes more complicated.

Contact us online, call (510) 330-2264 for our Berkeley team, or call (925) 241-4144 for our Dublin team to schedule a consultation.

How to Treat Rashes?

There is no one particular treatment for a skin rash. Icecreamwala Dermatology recommends treatment based on the causes and symptoms of your rash. Once our provider has gained an understanding of your rash, will help you to come up with a treatment plan.

Examples of treatment may include:

  • Avoiding certain substances
  • Cleansing the area with a prescription wash
  • Applying an ointment or corticosteroid cream to the rash
  • Antihistamines

We may ask you to return for a follow-up visit to ensure treatment is helping to improve your condition. If you want to learn more, we invite you to get in touch with us at either our Berkeley or Dublin office.
