Rash Treatment

Rash Treatment at AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove

Do you have a skin rash and need help treating it? Visit AFC Urgent Care to visit with our board-certified providers.

Rashes are a common medical ailment that our providers treat at our walk-in urgent care center. A variety of different reasons can cause them. In many cases, rashes should not be a big concern as they often clear up on their own. However, rashes can be a sign of something more serious requiring medical attention. The providers at our urgent care center are available seven days a week to help you with any rash-related problem.

Can I visit AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove if I don't know what caused my rash?

Yes! We are a great place to visit to determine the origin of a rash and how best to treat it. Let our providers evaluate an unknown rash in person to diagnose it better.

What are some common causes of rashes?

Allergens and other irritants cause rashes on someone's skin. Some of the most common causes are:

  • Stress
  • Heat
  • Viral infection such as Shingles
  • Bacterial infection such as impetigo and cellulitis
  • Bug bites
  • Certain plants, like Poison Oak or Poison Ivy
  • Allergic reaction to medication
  • Allergic reaction to food
  • Skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea
  • Triggered by chronic conditions like hepatitis.

There are also times when the cause of a rash will remain unknown.

How long does it take for a rash to go away?

The length of a rash on a patient often depends on what caused it. Since so many things can cause rashes, it is difficult to say with authority exactly how long a rash will last. A rash from an allergy may last a few hours, while a rash from a viral infection may last up to a week. Some conditions, like lupus, can result in a rash that lasts weeks or months.

When should I come to AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove to have a provider look at my rash?

As mentioned above, most rashes do not require medical attention and will clear up on their own. However, some symptoms indicate that there could be a more serious problem. Visit AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove if a rash:

  • spreads quickly
  • becomes very painful
  • covers the entire body
  • develops blisters or open sores
  • develops signs of infection (swelling, warmth, extreme pain, pus)
  • impairs daily activities
  • is concurrent with a fever
  • develops during pregnancy

If any of the following symptoms develop, visit an emergency room:

  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Swelling of the tongue
  • Tightness in the throat
  • Difficulty breathing
