Urgent Care for Rashes
Rashes are an area of the skin that is irritated and swollen, often accompanied by a noticeable raising of the skin and redness. Generally, a skin rash is an acute reaction of the body. In some cases, though, it can indicate a chronic condition. Depending on the type of rash, symptoms can vary, but the following are some symptoms that are common to most:
- Raised skin
In children, rashes can form because of ringworm, or acne, depending on your child’s age. It is often treated with antihistamine medications to help avoid scratching and itching.
