One of the most common skin disorders is a rash. There are many different types of rashes, resulting in red welts, bumps or blisters on the skin that can itch or burn. While skin rashes may look similar, they can be caused by a wide variety of medical and skin disorders. Most rashes are short-lived and go away on their own. Others may be a sign of a more serious health issue. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers professional diagnosis and skin rash treatments at our medical facility in Manhattan.

What Causes Skin Rashes?

Skin rashes can be caused by internal or external problems. The most common cause of rashes is contact with an irritant to the skin. This is also called contact dermatitis. Other causes can include autoimmune disorders, blistering skin diseases, infections, allergic reactions or sexually-transmitted diseases. Most rashes are temporary and fade quickly, but others many require medical treatment.

When to See a Dermatologist for a Rash

Most people know that contact with poison ivy or other common skin irritants will cause a rash. Using over-the-counter treatments for typical skin rashes is usually all that is required. However, there are times when you should see a dermatologist for skin rash treatment. Here are some signs that your skin rash may need medical treatment:

  • You have a fever with your rash
  • The rash covers most of your body
  • Signs of rash infection – warm to touch, streaking, oozing pus, etc.
  • Rash is causing pain
  • Blistering rash near eyes, mouth or genitals
  • Sudden rash that spreads quickly

It is important not to dismiss all skin rashes as non-threatening. In some cases, a rash can be a sign of a more serious condition. If you have a skin rash that may need medical treatment, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Greenwich Village to book your appointment. Our renowned board certified dermatologist, Dr. Morgan Rabach, can examine and diagnose your skin rash and recommend treatment.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
