An acute or intermittent redness of the skin is called a skin rash. Skin rashes are itchy and discolour the skin red in a very short time, can affect anyone and usually come as a surprise. There are as many manifestations as there are causes. Possible causes include children’s diseases, allergies, intolerance to medicines and general infectious diseases.
Skin rashes are often related to allergies in children. Chinese medicine usually interprets this pattern as Damp-Heat or Wind-Heat Condition, causing the following symptoms: red itchy skin, weeping after scratching, allergic skin conditions, eczema, urticaria, dermatitis.
