Pictures of skin rashes may be used to help you diagnose a skin rash. However, viewing only skin rash pictures can often lead to a misdiagnosis. There are numerous types of skin rashes that can occur and many skin rashes look very similar, but they may have very different causes.
In addition, the degree of severity of rashes can differ substantially. If a skin rash is misdiagnosed, then the treatment will not be effective in eliminating the skin rash.
Therefore, trying to assess your skin rash problem SOLELY by viewing pictures of rashes is not recommended. What is a little more helpful is to assess the skin rash pictures in relation to the skin rash symptoms being experienced. This will assist you in obtaining a more accurate diagnosis.
In order to help you begin to diagnose your skin rash, please examine the diagnose my skin rash page of this website. This page contains links to and information on many different types of skin rashes from those caused by viruses to those caused by irritants and many other factors. Use this information in addition to skin rash pictures to form a preliminary opinion as to what the skin rash might be.
Note that an initial self-diagnosis of the skin rash problem is useful but it is always a good idea to consult a physician about a skin rash. This is especially important if you have no idea what caused the skin rash and if you are at all concerned that the cause of the skin rash might be a sign of a more serious health problem. A skin doctor will be able to properly diagnose the rash and provide an appropriate and effective rash treatment.

Both of my palms always look like this, especially when it's hot outside. It doesn't itch or hurt and it's not raised.

This red rash on my wrist appeared two months ago and it is getting worse because of the scratching.
