Psoriasis

This is characterized by the formation of thick, silvery, dry patches on the skin, which can also be painful in some cases. Which can also affect the nails, scalp and groin.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is the most prevalent type of eczema, and the phrases are commonly used interchangeably to represent the same skin condition. 

Eczema can be caused by hereditary or environmental factors that tend to appear on the arms and behind the knees, but can technically appear anywhere on the body that can flare periodically.

Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is a kind of eczema brought on by physical and direct contact with something that irritates or triggers reaction. The irritation is characterized by severe itching and a rash with fluid-filled blisters and is not contagious.

Fungal Rash

Jock itch, athlete’s foot, and ringworm are all examples of fungal rashes, which are caused by the same fungus that flourishes in warm, wet areas like the groin, toes, underarms, inguinal areas and/or skin folds.

Bacterial Rash

Bacterial rashes can quickly escalate into far more serious health issues if they aren’t addressed, such as bacterial infections. 

Bacteria can enter your skin through a wound, insect bite, or other open wounds, if not addressed.

Depending on how severe the rash is, it can be confined to a small area of the body or spread across the entire body.

Hives

Hives are a rash of round, red welts, on the skin that are intensely itchy with significant swelling caused by an allergic reaction, typically to specific foods such as peanuts, eggs, almonds, and shellfish, or being exposed to extreme cold or heat, some medications and illnesses, and insect bites.
