Don't make rash decisions, let us help you
The first step to clear skin always starts with rashes and infections. Our goal is to completely clear or successfully control these annoyances.While rashes can affect any part of the body, the face is especially prone. This is because we tend to touch our faces many times a day making it susceptible to infections, one of the causes of rashes. Making matters worse, our faces are also constantly exposed to the outside environment.
No matter what part of the body is affected rashes can look similar, but there are actually quite a few different causes. Rashes can actually be a sign of a more serious underlying issue.
Its generally a good idea to have rashes examined to not only treat the rash itself but identify any potential associated issues.
While the list of different types of rashes is long, here are some common causes:
- Bacterial Infection
- Viral Infection
- Fungal Infection
- Allergic Reactions — Especially to products
- Irritant Reactions
