Skin rashes are areas of skin that have become irritated or swollen, and they typically present as small bumps, sores, red or scaly skin, or itchy and burning skin. Some skin rashes occur suddenly, whilst others take some time to develop. Most rashes don’t threaten your general health in any way, and can be easily treated with a topical or oral solution. However, there are some rashes that are symptoms of an underlying medical condition, so we advise you to come and see one of our highly qualified dermatologists for diagnosis and a personalised treatment plan.

Common skin rashes

There are hundreds of different types of skin rash that could occur, but some are much more common than others. Whether you have developed a skin rash recently, or have suffered with skin problems for a while, it could be due to one of the following conditions:

  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Urticaria (hives)
  • Prickly heat
  • Ringworm

Skin rashes can affect anyone of any age, and most of us will experience some sort of rash at some point in our lives. Although a rash can be uncomfortable, painful, and unsightly, the good news is that there are a variety of highly effective treatment options available. Our team of specialist dermatologists are able to diagnose what is causing your rash, and offer the best course of treatment. We can also offer advice and guidance on how to manage conditions such as eczema and psoriasis to prevent future flare-ups.

For more information on our skin rash treatment services, or to book a consultation with a member of our team, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.


Dermatologists are expert specialists, not only of the skin, but also of allergic conditions such as contact dermatitis, hair problems such as alopecia (hair loss), nail problems such as fungal nail conditions etc.
