15 Most Common Skin Rashes

A rash is a condition in which the skin has abnormal textures and other features like fluid discharge, itching, and pain. This issue can be a response to other systemic diseases, infections, toxins, or allergies. The appearance could range from an outbreak of eruptive pain to nearly incidental tissue swelling. In general, a rash could be classified as either non-infectious or infectious, and there are hundreds of forms. Below are 15 of the most common skin rashes and how to identify them.


Impetigo is a common skin infection caused by staphylococcal or streptococcal bacteria. It often occurs on the limb or face and is featured by the eruption of small blisters. Also, a honey-colored crust might be formed when the bacteria enter your body via abraded or broken skin such as insect bites, burn, scrape, or cut. This condition is more common in children after they catch a cold. Though impetigo might result in minor itchiness, it is often not as painful as scabies or shingles. The most common treatment option for this bacterial infection is antibiotics. [1]
