Skin Rashes Treatment Options

A rash is a widespread breakout of skin lesions, which can vary a lot in appearance. This condition might be local to a small area or would cover a larger part. There is a variety of rash forms, from bumpy, moist, dry and blistered to cracked and smooth with different colors. Since they are caused by many possible causes, the treatment options are also different. Below are the 10 most common ways to alleviate these skin issues.

Topical Treatments

There are many OTC topical treatments available, which are specially made for treating and alleviating skin rashes. They are classified into many kinds, including lotions, ointments, and creams.

– Ointments are oily and take a longer time to absorb. They are great for very dry skin tones.

– Creams can absorb more quickly, but they might add moisture. You should use them on thin areas such as the face, groin, and skin folds.

– Lotions can be absorbed most quickly and least moisturizing. They are often used for facial areas. [1]
