Your skin is the barrier between you and your environment. It’s your first line of defense against the outside world. Therefore, it’s important to pay attention to what your skin is telling you in the form of rashes and other skin conditions. A rash can be a sign that something is going on. A rash can also be a signal that you’ve come into contact with something that has caused an allergic reaction. These can range from certain types of jewelry, the use of some soaps and detergents, certain foods, or even certain types of medication. Being a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Schlessinger and his associates have the skill and education to correctly determine the cause and treatment of various skin rashes.
