Do you have an issue with a rash appearing on your skin out of nowhere and for no apparent reason? You’re not alone—skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis all can cause rashes and affect millions of Americans according to the American Academy of Dermatology. A dermatologist at Central Wyoming Skin Clinic in Casper, Laramie, and Gillette, Wyoming can help you diagnose, treat, and manage your skin problem.
Do You Have a Rash?
A rash is an inflamed area of the skin that causes it to redden in color. It may also cause the skin surface to look bumpy and cause incessant itching. A case of inflammation is usually the body’s natural reaction to what it may assume is a threat, such as a skin infection or contact with an irritant. A rash will usually go away on its own after a short period of time, but some people struggle with them more than usual and need the help of a skin doctor.
Possible Causes of Rashes
One of the reasons why rashes can be so frustrating for patients to deal with is that they often develop at inopportune times and for unknown reasons. There are numerous possible causes for a rash including:
- An allergic reaction due to contact with chemicals or allergens in the air (skin hives or contact dermatitis).
- Psoriasis, rosacea, acne, or eczema, which have generally unknown causes.
- Contact with poison ivy.
- A skin infection (viral or fungal).
Treatments for Rashes
The way your dermatologist chooses to treat your skin rash will depend on the most likely cause. If it’s due to a skin allergy, an antihistamine cream could help ease the symptoms. For a rash that’s related to an infection, antibiotic or anti-fungal therapy is needed. Medications are available that can help patients with recurrent skin rashes due to psoriasis, rosacea, and similar conditions. Your doctor may also recommend dietary and environmental changes to rectify problems with chronic rashes.

More about Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the permanent solution to remove unwanted hair. You’ve probably noticed that after you’ve plucked, waxed, and shaved, hair grows back quickly. If you want a permanent hair removal solution, laser hair removal is the right choice because it works by heating and destroying the hair follicle., ensuring that the hair won’t grow back.
Laser hair removal is right for you if you want to remove hair from your:
- Upper lip and chin
- Face and sideburns
- Legs and underarms
- Back and bikini line
There are many advantages of laser hair removal which can’t be matched by other hair removal methods. Consider that laser hair removal treatment is:
- Comfortable, as it targets only the hair follicle and doesn’t damage the skin around it
- Quick, as small areas only take between 2 and 5 minutes, underarms 5 to 15 minutes, and your bikini line about 30 minutes. Larger areas like your legs and back can require 60 to 90 minutes.
- Effective, because unlike other hair removal methods, you can remove hair from large areas of your body, like your legs and back, in one treatment.

Though the fountain of youth is only a myth, looking younger and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles has never been as easy as it is with today’s modern medical technology. Botox is a common and effective solution for fine lines and wrinkles and is available right in your dermatologist’s office. Find out more about Botox and how it can help you look and feel younger with Dr. Scott Bennion and Dr. Matthew Green at Central Wyoming Skin Clinic with locations in Casper, Laramie, and Gillette, WY.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic dermatology treatment which focuses on minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even preventing them from forming at all. Botox itself is a liquid which your dermatologist injects directly into the facial muscles which lie under the skin. The substance paralyzes the muscles, preventing them from moving and wrinkling the skin on top of them. This allows the skin to smooth over the muscle and prevents the skin from moving repetitively to cause wrinkles.
What can I expect during a Botox treatment?
Before your treatment, your doctor will cleanse your skin and mark the best areas for treatment. Then, they will inject the Botox into the skin using a super-fine needle. Most treatment sessions take only about 15 minutes and sometimes provide immediate results, though many patients report maximum results in the following few days or weeks.
Am I a good candidate for Botox?
A good candidate for Botox is in good overall health and has realistic expectations for their results. Good candidates have lines and wrinkles caused by excessive movement of the facial skin but may also benefit from Botox if they experience excessive sweating or medical conditions like migraines which do not respond to other treatments.

It appears that there is a mini-epidemic of hand-foot and mouth disease in Casper. The cause of this illness is viral usually involving coxsackie or enteroviruses. It begins with tender vesicles on the tongue, gingiva and the lining of the mouth. Usually it occurs in children under 15 but it can occur in anyone. There is a mild fever and as the disease progresses small grey vesicles develop on the hands and feet. The eruption can occur on the buttocks especially in infants and small children who wear diapers. The treatment is supportive with no medication found to be curative. There have been reports of acyclovir helping but no formal studies have been done to determine if acyclovir has an effect on this disease. It is contagious and appears to be spread via the oral fecal route, wash your hands after coming in contact with an infected person.
Skin cancer is more common than any other type of cancer in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although changes in moles are an obvious sign of a potential problem, other possible skin cancer signs are more subtle. Regular skin cancer exams are often credited with detecting skin cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. Dr. Scott Bennion and Dr. Matthew Green of Central Wyoming Skin Clinic offer skin cancer screenings in their Casper, Laramie, and Gillette, WY, offices.
Home skin cancer exams
Performing monthly self-exams can help you spot signs of potential skin cancers. If you notice any of these issues, schedule an appointment with your Casper, Laramie, or Gillette dermatologist for a skin cancer exam:
- Mole Changes: Look for moles that have changed color, ooze, itch or no longer have smooth, regular borders. New moles should be investigated, as should moles that are larger than a pencil eraser.
- Bumps and Pimples: Squamous or basal cell carcinomas can sometimes be confused with pimples or insect bites. Although pimples or bites usually go away within a few weeks, red bumps caused by skin cancer don't.
- Colored Spots and Sores: Skin color changes may be a sign of skin cancer. Your skin may turn black, pink, red, or brown as a result of a skin cancer. Open sores that never seem to heal should also be examined.
- Flaky Skin: Areas of flaky skin that never go away, no matter how much moisturizer you use, are also a cause for concern.
Professional skin exams
Yearly skin exams by a dermatologist are important, even if you perform self-exams. Your dermatologist has seen countless cases of skin cancer and can identify spots that you may have missed during your own examinations. Although skin cancer screenings are beneficial for everyone, they're particularly important if you've had one or more bad sunburns, work or play in the sun frequently, sunbathe or use tanning beds.
Should your dermatologist notice any suspicious spots, they will be biopsied to ensure that they aren't cancerous. If cancer is detected, your skin doctor can offer a variety of treatments to protect your health, including skin-sparing Mohs micrographic surgery.
Skin cancer exams offer a simple way to protect your health. Call Dr. Bennion and Dr. Green of Central Wyoming Skin Clinic at (307) 234-0003 to schedule an appointment in the Casper, Laramie, or Gillette, WY, offices.
