Dryness, allergic reactions, psoriasis, eczema, acne, sweating and various other reasons can cause skin rashes. Skin rashes get annoying after a while since you constantly have the urge to itch and every time you itch there’s a small bump that changes the skin colour, appearance or its texture. Skin rashes can happen on any part of the body. Apart from the frequent causes, irritation from shampoos, cosmetics, soaps or detergents can also lead to rashes. Rashes or skin allergies could also be triggered by underlying fungal, bacterial or viral infections.
