Skin rashes often manifest themselves as dry, flaky patches that can be red, swollen and inflamed. Left untreated, skin rashes can spread and become infected. Often a result of skin disease such as dermatitis, psoriasis, or dandruff, skin rash can be treated by use of moisturizing skin care products that penetrate to deep dermal layers where rashes often begin. A skin rash may indicate a more serious problem such as allergies.

It could be that toxins in the body are being sent from the skin and blood causing inflammation and flaking. This deposit of toxins is usually in the sweat glands and stay there until they are dealt with properly. The skin becomes swollen and may become red. Sun rashes are also known as solar dermatitis. Usually children and young women suffer from this skin problem. Prolonged exposure to sun is the main cause behind the formation of these itchy bumps. This is a common problem that can be easily prevented.
