Dermatologists know what a huge impact skin disease can have on your life. Early accurate diagnosis and treatment can bring about an excellent improvement in quality of life even for incurable conditions. Our dermatologists are able to diagnose and treat most skin conditions, including conditions of the nail, scalp, genitals and emergency rashes.

Emergency rash Overview

An ‘emergency rash’ is an acute severe flare up of a skin condition.  This could be pre-existing eczema, psoriasis, urticaria, or an acquired condition such as blistering, drug reaction or infection.  The most important aspect is to have the diagnosis confirmed before being treated.  A consultant dermatologist is trained especially to recognise these conditions and to offer appropriate treatment.

Emergency rash treatment options

Treatment will depend on the condition that is causing your flare-up.  The treatment for eczema and psoriasis is covered in the specific pages above and the response can be very swift.  All other conditions can usually be treated with a high degree of success.

Remember, the most important aspect about emergency rashes is to have the diagnosis confirmed before being treated.  A consultant dermatologist is trained to recognise these conditions and to offer appropriate treatment – see our before and after pictures.  Get in touch and let one of our consultants assess and treat your condition.
