What’s Causing Your Rash?

A rash can happen for a number of reasons and can occur anywhere on your body. Common areas a rash can develop include the face, neck, hands, chest, back and legs.

Here are some of the many common skin conditions that can cause a rash:

  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Heat rash
  • Dry skin
  • Hives
  • Psoriasis
  • Ringworm
  • Scabies
  • Chickenpox

These conditions are usually clearly identifiable just by looking at them. You don’t need to be examined in person and can get an accurate diagnosis at the push of a button with our video appointments.

Treating A Rash

Your treatment will depend entirely on what the diagnosis is. For example, the medication required for a virus is very different than it would be for an allergy.

Your doctor will let you know which medication will help you get better. They’ll explain how often to take it, and how much to include in a dose.

If the medication you need isn’t available over-the-counter, our GPs can write a prescription straight away and send it to you via email or first-class post. You can then collect the medicine from your chosen pharmacy.
