Rashes

Skin Rashes cause change in the color or texture of your skin. The cause of a rash is generally determined by its visible characteristics and other symptoms. Depending on the cause of your rash, your treatment may include medicated creams, oral medication, or surgery.

Diagnostic tests may include a skin biopsy, scraping, or blood tests.
