Most rashes are not life-threatening. But there are some signs that you should seek medical treatment:

  1. If you have a fever or pain accompanying your rash, you should seek medical attention.
  2. A sudden spreading or bruise-like lesions could be a sign of something more serious. An infection would be warm and painful to the touch, yellow or green discharge, and a bad odor.
  3. A rash that simply does not go away.
  4. A widespread rash.
  5. Purple spots that appear on the hands and feet.
  6. A circular shape or bulls-eye rash could be a symptom of Lyme Disease and should be checked out.

Rashes could be caused by a variety of things: reactions to medications, environmental factors, or bacteria/virus. The medical staff at Stony Creek Urgent Care Center is here to treat your condition without the long wait of the emergency room at a hospital.
