Skin Conditions & Rashes

What Are They?

Skin conditions, hives and rashes are common in the UK and can vary from easily treatable fungal ailments to serious skin cancers. As these conditions are often clearly visible, those with symptoms of a skin condition can also suffer from emotional or mental health issues such as depression. The variety of rashes and causes can seem endless. Is that rash poison ivy, a bug bite, an allergy, or a sexually transmitted infection? 

We recommend that you see a doctor if you have a skin condition that is unusual for you, or that is changing or causing you concern.
