Rashes are generally a short-lived condition, but they can still be uncomfortable and may require professional care. Baldone Reina Dermatology provides rash treatment for residents living in Mandeville, Slidell, New Orleans and Covington, LA.
What is Rash Treatment?
Rashes are a common skin condition that are usually temporary. They can cause redness, bumps, itchiness or sensitivity in the affected areas. Rashes can develop for a number of reasons, and are infrequently serious. However, if you develop a rash that is persistent, painful or begins to spread, you may want to visit a dermatologist for treatment. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we are proud to provide effective rash treatments to help patients find quick relief.
How Much Does Rash Treatment Cost?
If you choose to pursue rash treatment at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition to determine the best approach for your rash treatment. In some cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. Once these variables are considered and your eligibility for insurance coverage is determined, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is Contact Dermatitis?
Contact dermatitis is a form of eczema that develops when the skin makes contact with an irritant. The part of the skin that contacts the irritating substance will develop a rash, which is often red, bumpy or itchy. Common irritants include jewelry, soaps and other cosmetic products. If you know the substance that is causing the rash, avoiding it can cause the symptoms to fade. However, persistent cases may require care from a dermatologist.
How are Rashes Treated?
After we diagnose the cause of your rash, we will be able to determine an effective treatment. Most often, rashes can be treated with topical medications. In these cases, patients can expect to achieve relief within just days or weeks of beginning treatment. If we determine that the rash is a symptom of an underlying condition, we will be able to recommend the appropriate treatment.
