Rash, Age 12 and Older - Prevention
If you have a known allergy, avoid contact
with the substance that causes the allergy.
Avoid all infectious
diseases that cause skin rashes, such as chickenpox, measles, and some types of
sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Treat your skin gently:
- Do not bathe too much. Soap and water dries
your skin of the essential oils that hold in moisture.
- Do not
scratch your skin or rub it roughly with towels.
- Avoid exposure to
chemicals that may irritate the skin, such as rubbing alcohol, soaps,
detergents, or solvents.
