Skin Rash Allergy Medicine Recommended for Certain Types of Allergies

<strong>Skin Rash Allergy Medicine Recommended for Certain Types of Allergies</strong>

For many patients with contact dermatitis, itching, inflammation, and redness are common complaints that come alongside rashes known to develop. Working with a professional such as an allergist can determine your food or environmental allergy and start finding ways to reduce the likelihood of these issues. Dr. Noga Askenazi of Crystal Lake, Illinois, is an allergist who can assist in helping you find relief–especially if you are dealing with skin rashes and itching that make it impossible to get through the day without treatment.

What are Some Medications Recommended for Patients with Skin Rashes?

There are many medications recommended for patients with skin rashes. Some of the most common include over-the-counter antihistamines, corticosteroids, and topical antiseptics.

  • Antihistamines. Antihistamines are a line of medication used to relieve itching, a common issue when rashes develop. Some patients find it hard to concentrate at work or fall asleep when dealing with persistent and severe itching. Antihistamines may be oral or topical.
  • Corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are best used to reduce inflammation. They may be combined with topical or oral antihistamines to alleviate inflammation and itching, which can cause patients to become extremely uncomfortable.
  • Topical antiseptics. Topical antiseptics can kill bacteria on the skin and soothe irritation.

How Do I Know What Treatment is Right for Me?

Talking to a doctor before beginning any new medication is essential, as they can help decide which treatment will be best for each case. Giving Dr. Noga Askenazi a rundown of your current medications will also ensure that no contraindications arise if integrating any of the above medicines into one’s regular skincare program. During an evaluation, our team will provide an effective diagnosis and discuss long-term solutions for patients with certain allergies and allergic reactions.
