Board Certified Dermatologist, Debra Jaliman, MD is one of Manhattan, New York's leading authorities on rashes. What is a rash? Rashes are your body's way of telling you it really doesn't like something. The most common rashes are a result from adverse reactions to medications, ingredients in a lotion or shampoo, metals, or even food.
Unfortunately, some rashes will only go away if treated by your dermatologist. These type of rashes include severe forms of common rashes such as acne, atopic dermatitis, and rosacea.
Some rashes are chronic, or long-term, requiring regular check-ups to keep them under control. You should consider seeing Board Certified Dermatologist, Debra Jaliman if your regular regimen is not working and your rash simply is not going away.
Also, if a rash really bothers you, you should see your dermatologist. It doesn't matter if it's a common skin problem, or other people aren't concerned about it. You're the one who has to live with your skin, so if you want to talk to a dermatologist, feel free to contact Dr. Jaliman for a consultation.
Please note, the longer you've had a rash, the more likely you need to see a dermatologist if you're concerned about it.
Most of the time a rash that has been only present for a few days will go away on its own. Warning signs that you should visit your dermatologist sooner rather than later are pain, rapid swelling causing shortness of breath, bleeding blisters in the mouth or eyes, skin that is rapidly turning dusky or black, and large amounts of peeling skin.
Feel free to schedule a consultation with Board Certified Dermatologist, Debra Jaliman, MD at her Manhattan, New York office for treatment of your rash.
