Is it a skin cancer rash?
Rashes can occur for a wide variety of different reasons, so it’s difficult to determine if one could be cancer just by looking at it. Skin rashes are commonly caused by allergies, infections, exposure to heat, and irritation from chemicals such as in washing detergents.
However, certain types of unexplained rashes can be a sign of skin cancer. Most people think of moles and dark patches on the skin when they think about skin cancer, but a rash can also be associated with skin cancer.
The most effective way to identify a skin cancer rash is to examine your skin on a regular basis. If you notice an unexplained rash that’s not going away on its own, it is recommended to visit a health care provider or dermatologist for advice.
