Skin irritation and Rash treatment at Instant Tele Care
Each year, skin rashes, skin irritation, sunburns, and dry skin cause patients significant discomfort and itching. However, some at-home remedies and rest may not be enough to fully treat your skin conditions, which is why Instant Tele Care is providing telemedicine visits and virtual consultations to administer treatment for sudden skin conditions.
The most common causes of skin conditions include dermatitis, acne from clogged pores, allergies, sunburn, hives, and other irritants/diseases. A significant number of patients can experience a breakout of hives from mild and moderate allergic reactions, which may require a medical provider’s expertise to diagnose. If you are experiencing consistent skin rashes or irritation, then please talk to a doctor today at Instant Tele Care for a digital consultation.
Skin conditions we treat at Instant Tele Care
Instant Tele Care offers virtual treatment and provider consults for the following conditions. If you’re not sure what may be the root cause of your skin irritation, please call us today to begin diagnosis of your skin condition.
Acne, commonly referred to as whiteheads, blackheads, zits, or pimples, is when your pores and hair foliciles become blocked by oil and dead skin cells. Acne most commonly appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders and affects patients of all ages. Teenagers and adolescents are the most likely to have consistent acne as their body continues to grow at an accelerated rate.
Mild to moderately severe acne can cause scarring and self-image issues if patients don’t treat acne immediately. The good news for patients that may experience consistent and irritating acne symptoms is that Instant Tele Care is here to provide acne treatment through our virtual visits.
Hives are a skin reaction, usually from a sensitive allergy, that can range from small spots to large blotches. Exposure to specific allergens, like foods or medications, as well as airborne factors can lead to an outbreak of hives on the patient.
If you need to contact Instant Tele Care for hives treatment, make sure you explain to your provider about any pre-existing allergies and conditions that may have triggered your hives. Providers can administer the appropriate treatment to help reduce the swelling and appearance of hives.
A skin rash, or dermatitis, is a general term for an itchy, dry, and reddened skin that can lead to painful and irritating symptoms. In some cases, a rash may lead to blisters that can ooze or bleed, crust, or flake off. A skin rash is not contagious, but the symptoms and cosmetic damage from a rash may likely require medical care and consultation from a medical provider.
A rash can be caused by eczema, which usually results in dry skin and flaky skin. Eczema is usually caused by airborne allergens, certain foods, allergic reactions, or a combination of factors. Rashes are also caused by physical contact with irritants such as poison ivy, jewelry, cleaning products, and some creams or lotions. The most common risk factors for a sudden rash include age, health conditions, occupational hazards, allergies, asthma, and hereditary complications.
Nearly 38% of the U.S adult population suffers from one or more sunburns in a given calendar year. Sunburns form due to overexposure to UV rays from the sun, which can lead to dry and dehydrated skin. Sunburns also cause extreme pain and redness for most patients, while a history of significant overexposure to UV rays can cause skin cancer and melanoma. Minor and acute sunburns can be treated with provider instruction and some ointments/medications.
If you experience a sudden sunburn, then make sure you book an online appointment at Instant Tele Care today to quickly treat sunburn-related irritation.
