One of the more irritating things that you can run into is getting a rash. Red, blotchy skin that may or may not hurt, and may or may not be associated with anything else. In many cases, rashes come and go without you ever really knowing why they showed up in the first place. And when you Google rashes, the results that come back are very rarely less than fascinating to filter through.
Obviously, if a rash is a sign of a major problem, you should always see a doctor, but there are reasons for the condition that you should be aware of, just in case you can connect the dots to a particular things you’ve been around lately – like cleaners and detergents, something you’re allergic to, exposure to weather (like sun and wind), recent bad eating habits, or even irritation from bug bites.
Cleaners and Detergents
There are chemicals that are great at cleaning, but bad for sensitive skin. And you can even develop these sensitivities over time, so cleaners that you used to be able to use, you can’t anymore. And the only indication of that is that fact that your hands might get a rash if you use a sponge, or your clothes might start giving you a rash all over after you wash them.
If you have common allergies, then you know how often you can get rashes along with the sniffles, sneezes, and dry eyes. Some kind of over the counter medication will often take care of all of these symptoms, but if your rashes persist, that’s when it’s probably going to be time to call a doctor. Sometimes allergies can have serious side effects other than common symptoms as well, so be on the lookout for them all together.
If you’ve been hiding inside all winter, the first time you go out into the sun, you might not get just a tan, but a little rash as well. It might look like a little sun burn, and it’s just your skin’s reaction to the sunlight for the first new time of the season.
What you put into your body has an effect on the outside of your body. If you eat lousy food, you might not only feel bad, but you’ll look bad as well, and that may or may not include a rash over various parts of your body. A bad diet might cause a rash on your belly, or even on your face, especially if your system is reacting to things like too much refined sugar.
Irritation From Bug Bites
Rashes can also occur from irritation resulting from bug bites. And not only do the initial spider or mosquito bites cause redness and irritation, if you itch them, that condition can spread as well. If you know that it’s a bite that started it, then some type of topical medication can be your idea solution to keep from itching more.
