What is itchy rash?

Itchy rashes are common in children and typically caused by hives or contact dermatitis.

Hives are raised, itchy bumps that can be red or skin-colored.

Contact dermatitis is a reaction caused by a substance that touches the skin and can cause bumps, blisters, redness, and oozing.

Get the Treatment Your Child Needs

Most itchy rashes improve with home remedies and over-the-counter treatments. If rashes are widespread, get worse despite 3-5 days of home treatments, or involve the face or genitals, prescription medication may be required. Your Alpha Provider can help determine which rashes could benefit from prescription medication, and in some cases may recommend seeing a dermatologist or allergist for additional skin, blood, or allergy testing if the rash does not go away with home treatments or comes back frequently.
