What are Rashes?
Rash is a general term used to describe any kind of discoloration or inflammation of the skin. There are various sorts of rashes, such as contact dermatitis, hives, heat rash, and athlete's foot. A rash is often caused by a fungal, parasitic, viral, or bacterial infection. Some rashes aren't contagious, but others are easily spread when left untreated.

"I love this place. It is super clean and staff are very versed in all aspects of skin care. I have not been here for awhile as I usually come out to Arizpna for the winter months and have been away but am back now and will be booking appointment right away. This place is so very different than many and do not push things at you. They are 100% professional."- B. / Healthgrades / Jan 08, 2020
"Greeted by a friendly staff :) I was pleased to learn that there was nothing alarming or cancerous after a thorough body check. However, the aging process, as well as many hours in the outdoors were evident! I really appreciated the time Becky spent explaining details about my skin, healthier skincare practices, and product suggestions to improve it - sun block being #1! Dr. Mehta was very pleasant and answered my questions (and fears) about any type of face treatment procedures. I feel very confident having him work on my skin to restore some of its lost glow. I highly recommend the Arizona Skin Institute."- M.A. / Google / Jun 11, 2020

"I visited the Peoria location. The staff is amazing! Everyone is friendly, professional, and very personable. I was having a hard day, not to mention, struggling for some time with some skin issues, and one of my doctors really went the extra mile to cheer me on and show her beautiful loving spirit with a friendly hug and positive, motivating feedback. I was very comfortable engaging with the doctors and asking questions. Having over 10 & 15 years of experience, they were very informative and confident. I really love this place and I recommend it to anyone seeking any areas of dermatology, like skin diseases & conditions, including cosmetic treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, and laser treatments."- M.B. / Google / Mar 03, 2020

what Causes rashes?
There isn't one particular cause of rashes since there are numerous factors that can cause skin irritation. Typically, a rash develops when you come into contact with something that leads to an infection or allergic reaction. Items like cleaning products, certain lotions or soaps, animal dander, and pollen could cause an allergic reaction that leads to a rash. There are thousands of different bacteria and viruses that can cause a rash as well. Those with hay fever, sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma are often more prone to developing rashes.
Treatments for rashes
Treatments differ from patient to patient. During your initial consultation, Dr Mehta will methodically examine your skin to determine a diagnosis and treatment program. He will take into consideration the particular type of rash, location, and severity to create a customized treatment plan. Often times, an antifungal, antibacterial, or antibiotic topical cream or gel can help to alleviate and manage symptoms.
