Rashes in Exton, PA

When Should I See Dr. Liu About a Skin Rash

Whether uncomfortable or unsightly, a skin rash can be alarming. Rashes can occur due to various triggers, such as an allergic reaction, infection, internal illness, or even stress. The best way to receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for your rash is to see a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Liu. Dermatologists are the only physicians who are specifically trained to evaluate and treat all types of rashes.

At Liu Dermatology, we understand that when you have an uncomfortable rash, you require immediate attention and cannot wait weeks to months for an appointment with a dermatologist. That's why we offer same-day or next-day appointments so that you can be appropriately treated before your rash spreads or worsens.

What Types of Rashes Can Be Treated At Liu Dermatology?

As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Liu can evaluate and treat all types of rashes. She also has extensive experience treating rashes in all skin types, including ethnic skin.

Here are some common types of rashes that we treat:

  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • poison ivy/contact dermatitis
  • dandruff/seborrheic dermatitis
  • lichen planus
  • folliculitis
  • lupus and other autoimmune conditions
  • many more

What Should I Expect During My Rash Appointment?

Dr. Liu will take a thorough history of your symptoms and examine your rash carefully. Most of the time, a diagnosis can be made based on the history and examination, after which a treatment plan will be discussed. If you require prescription medications to treat your rash, you have the option of picking them up on-site, as we carry the most common dermatologic medications. Or, you could choose to have the prescriptions sent to your preferred pharmacy.

For some types of rashes, further workup is needed to arrive at a diagnosis. This may include a skin biopsy, blood tests, or other diagnostic testing. If any additional testing is required, it will be discussed at the time of your appointment, and any tests that can be performed in the office will be done same-day.
