What your skin doctor in Port Orange and Daytona Beach, FL wants you to know

Dermatologist Rash TreatmentIf you have a rash, you are not alone. In fact, rashes are one of the most common skin problems because they can be caused by exposure to so many everyday substances. The good news is a rash is usually easy to treat. Dr. Jeffrey Heller at Heller Dermatology Center wants to help you get relief from an annoying rash. He has two office locations in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, Florida to help with your skincare needs.

If you have allergies, they can often show up as a rash and can cover large areas of your body. They can look like red, swollen bumps, or diffuse, spreading rashes. They can be caused by exposure to plants like poison ivy, pet dander, foods, and other substances. Typically, rashes due to allergies will itch due to the release of histamine. To reduce the itch, you can try taking over-the-counter antihistamines and topical cortisone cream.

Rashes can also be caused by skin inflammation due to chemicals and other substances. A rash of this type is known as dermatitis. There are a few types of dermatitis including contact dermatitis, which appears as a dry, non-itchy rash and atopic dermatitis, which is also known as eczema. The cause of dermatitis may not be immediately evident, so it’s best to seek out the services of your dermatologist.

If your rash doesn’t go away on its own or with simple home therapies, it’s time to seek out your dermatologist. Dr. Heller may recommend:

  • Cortisone or antibiotic creams and lotions
  • Prescription strength antihistamine medications
  • Prescription strength steroid medications

The constant itching of a rash can be uncomfortable, and the appearance of a rash can affect your self-esteem. You don’t have to let a rash take over. Just pick up the phone and call Dr. Jeffrey Heller of Heller Dermatology Center, with offices in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, Florida. Call today and get rid of your rash!
